Fleetwood Mac Rumours1977: Topping U.S. charts is Dreams by Fleetwood Mac. Written by the impossibly unforgettable Stevie Nicks for the 1977 album Rumours, this is the group’s sole #1 hit. Each member of the group is going through a breakup at the time the LP is recorded. Nicks dashes off the song in about 10 minutes, according to her recollection. The rest of the group is not all that excited about it, but Nicks begs them to record it. They do. Massive hit. Stevie wins.
