I still haven't figured out what order the Beatles albums were released in, so I'm frequently wrong about whether one of their songs is "newer" or "older".

Just know that despite Let it Be being the last album released, Abbey Road was the last album recorded.

In 1977 Fleetwood Mac's Rumours came out, selling more than 40 million copies. On it were pop songs like "Dreams", which we've all heard 1000 times:
They've written better stuff, though, including the blues-oriented "The Chain": another example of a rock band's earlier stuff being better than the newer.
Too bad they had to sell out and go soft, huh.

However, "The Chain" and "Dreams" are on the same album.


John McVie's bass riff in The Chain was the first thing I learned to play on bass guitar.

There is a Band Called "The Midnight" this group is does a genre called synthwave and most of their songs sound like they came from the mid 1980's

Here is a Sample


Also another group managed use "The Midnights" Los Angeles and tie the song to actual 1980's clips of Los Angeles

The "All I Wanna Do Is Have Some Fun Before I Die" Song

contains the lyrics:

"No Disco"

and

"Fancy Datsuns And Buicks"

I thought the song was from 1983.

But it was made 10 years after that during a time when the Datsun name was inactive. I would not consider Datsun to be fancy. Perhaps "Fancy Infinitis And Buicks" sounds worse.
