My Favorite Forever & Ever
It's been awhile since I've posted, but, wanted to remind you of the genius of my favorite female performer, Stevie Nicks. Stevie has said in interviews that "Stand Back" is one of her favorite songs to perform because she gets to dance. AND DANCE SHE DOES. I love that whenever she performed this song live, she would have a dancer come up halfway through, during the breakdown, and dance the "Stand Back" dance with her. No matter where she was performing - he was there. SNL? Check. Red Rocks? Check. Solid Gold? Obviously check. It's always the same story, too, with the dance - she loved to tease him, and, kind of push him around, and would whip her head back in sexy defiance. Of course her shawl is the ultimate dance prop and is sometimes her shy, demure crutch that briefly hides her face, but, sometimes it's her witchy spellbinding accomplice (what am I even talking about? I just made that up). If there's a bigger stage, an amazing overly dramatic walk-dance-chase happens, which is pretty much my favorite thing EVER.
Here's the Solid Gold version:
And, Red Rocks (this is one of my favorite concert videos ever) with special WALK-DANCE-CHASE scene
