"Using the song "Dreams," one of Stevie Nicks' finest songs, the video picks apart the bones of the song, beginning by contrasting the lush, completed version with Nicks' stripped-down demo," Uproxx reports. "From there it explores the different musical keys of the song, noting which instruments come into play and when, as well as the different technological effects, like adding a phaser to Fleetwood's hi-hat, that give "Dreams" its sonic signature."
The video, "How Fleetwood Mac Makes A Song" is described as "a deconstruction of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams," off their masterpiece 1977 album, Rumors.
