‘Everywhere’ by Fleetwood Mac – Classic Hit or Miss
“Everywhere” was released in the UK on February 24, 1988 and reached # 4. In the United States, it was released a little earlier on November 28, 1987 and reached number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and went to #1 on the U.S. adult contemporary chart, remaining there for three weeks.The song also reached the Top 50 in Australia at number forty-five.
A 12-inch single was also issued, and featured an extended dance version and dub version. “Everywhere” also marked the first CD-single release by the band in most territories. All formats included the b-side “When I See You Again”, a track taken from the Tango in the Night album; the 12″ format featured an extended mix of “Everywhere”, and the CD-single contained bonus tracks “Rhiannon” and “Say You Love Me” from the 1975 album Fleetwood Mac.
The video of the song is a visual depiction of the poem, The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. There are two versions of the video; one features the story with members of the band appearing throughout, while the other doesn’t feature the band at all.
#14 back in 1988 – how about today?
