Music Monday - I Need To Know by Stevie Nicks

I Need To Know was written by Stevie's dear friend Tom Petty. I heard it for the first time when I saw the HBO Special back in 1982 and I immediately began my search to find what album this song was on. I was a fairly new Stevie fan and we didn't have the luxury of doing an internet search back then so information was a bit harder to come by... remember those days??? I searched and searched for this song along with Gold and Braid which was also on the HBO Special.... and neither was anywhere to be found other than this live concert... which was only available on video. Turned out that neither song had ever been recorded on a Stevie Nicks (or Fleetwood Mac) album.

I have loved this song since the first time I heard it... it's one of the rare few that she sings but didn't write herself.... it's just such a rocker!.... and I'm sorry Tom (Petty).... but Stevie rocked it waaaay more than you did!

This is also Steffie's very favorite Stevie song... she's been singing it since was barely 2 years old.... later I'll post a lil video of her singing it too :)... but for now here is Stevie Nicks performing I Need To Know live from the HBO Special....

Yay!! More Stevie! And I have never heard her sing this before just now, and I loved it!!

And you have to love the outfit she has on in this video clip too!! It looks so beautiful as she raises her arms to play the tambourine.

Great selection!!!
Take care,
Kat

I loved the outfit and it just made me think more about Woodstock and the old music we all seem to love all ages..as it just can't seem to be compared.

Thanks..

I love Stevie!

The story you wrote on my blog was hilarious. It had me rolling. Between my 5 brothers and sisters, my parents have 8 grandsons, no girls. So there was no learning about the opposite sex through diaper changes.

Okay! I think you are a bit biased. We all know how much you like Stevie Nicks. But the song is beautiful. I wouldn't mind some more.
Have a musical day and life.
