Twisted by Stevie Nicks (featuring Lindsey Buckingham)



" Twisted" is a  relatively obscure song from 1996.  The song was written by Stevie Nicks for the Helen Hunt tornado disaster movie called Twister. As often is this case, in our era of "music inspired by" but not actually in the movie  soundtracks  you can barely find the song in the movie.  Stevie Nicks has often recorded stand alone songs for movies and movie soundtracks, and this one of the best of those songs.  Even  now, the song is  only available on the soundtrack album for the movie, although a solo acoustic version of the song was released on the  Stevie Nicks, box set, Enchanted.  What I  love about this  record  is the  rare chance to hear Stevie and Lindsey singing together on a excellent song. Stevie excels at backing vocals/ harmonies almost more so than at Lead Vocals and on this record I love the drama she imparts to "the sun goes down, crazy men, crazy women" parts at the end.  This song also features Mick Fleetwood on Drums making it almost a Fleetwood Mac Reunion, and this was  one of the sessions that led the group to decide to get back together in their classic lineup for 1996's "The Dance" Concert/TV special.
