FLEETWOOD MAC: Stevie Nicks classic is back on the chart
Fleetwood Mac are back on the charts with a song released 41 years ago.
"Dreams," the Stevie Nicks composition that was number-one in 1977, is at number-14 on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart thanks to its usage in a meme showing people dancing to the song.
This little bit of chart action also gave a boost to Rumours, the album "Dreams" is on, as it jumps from number-21 to number-13 on the Top Rock Albums chart.
