I’m going to be terribly unoriginal here (i.e., no thinking involved) and pinch a song from another blog for today’s Song of the day.
It’s a cover of Fleetwood Mac “Think About Me“, and I found it on Sal Nunziato’s Burning Wood blog (Hi, Sal!):
The New Pornographers – “Think About Me“ (2012)
Think About Me | The New Pornographers by concordmusicgroup
That appears on a Fleetwood Mac tribute album, Just Tell Me That You Want Me.
On Sal’s post, regular commenter FD13NYC (Hi, FD!) said that he preferred Michael Carpenter‘s version:
Michael Carpenter – “Think About Me“ (2011)
Here’s the original:
Fleetwood Mac – “Think About Me“ (1979)
I’ll try to think of an original post tomorrow, one that involves a song you won’t find just by going to another blog.

Today’s coincidence comes to you courtesy of my friend Mr. Fabulous (aka Dr. Keats), with a little addition. (I couldn’t help myself.)
The astute Mr./Dr. noted the similarity between these two songs:
Fleetwood Mac – “Rhiannon“ (1975)
John Stewart – “Gold” (1979)
One factor that contributes to those two songs sounding related is the fact that John Stewart employed the services of two-fifths of Fleetwood Mac (the Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham fifths) to record “Gold”.
And when I listened to “Rhiannon” again, I remembered an Australian song that also messed around with the A minor chord:
Goanna – “Solid Rock” (1982)
Thanks, Mr. F, for supplying that coincidence.
