The Gypsy Homestead

~All Good Things Are Wild And Free~

THE BEST Stripped Down Version of "Gypsy" by Stevie Nicks!!!!!

Stevie Nicks- need I say more?  There aren't enough words to possibly describe how talented and amazing this exquisite soul is!!!!! The meaning behind this song is so very special.  As the years pass by, the song becomes more and more dear as is touches so many people in such a personal way.  "Lightning Strikes, Maybe Once, Maybe Twice" - ingenious!!!!!   I am personally a huge fan and literally cannot get enough of Stevie's musical talent....this version of the song brought tears to my eyes and will forever hold a place in my heart! 

From Rolling Stone:

The song Gypsy isn't a real happy story. Gypsy is a lot about returning to San Francisco. And Gypsy was written when my best friend [Robin] died of Leukemia and uh ...about the fact that she wasn't going to see the rest of this: I still see your bright eyes, it was like she wasn't ...going to make it. And uh, I was like the lone gypsy ~ this was my best friend from when I was 15 and so I was a solo gypsy all of a sudden and it was very sad for me and that's sometimes when I write my very best songs.
Robin had been on the road with Fleetwood Mac for five years. As my speech therapist and also management, an incredibly efficient helper. I still miss your bright eyes ~ that's why we don't do it on stage ~ it's because it's really too hard for me to sing. Lightening strikes maybe once, maybe twice... that means one time in your life you find a very good friend, and maybe if you're incredibly lucky, you might find a second. It all comes down to you, means but you have to look very hard.
