Bare Trees

Published November 27, 2012 by Sandee

Fleetwood Mac’s Bare Trees is open-ended.

Does it say it’s fine that I’m in bed butt naked, by myself?

Or does it say that you need to get out of your bed, come over here and get in mine?

Fleshing out that idea, we’ll pull the blinds up, watch snow flurries materialize from a peach-colored sky.

    • Thanks! I tried to find a picture that would more closely resemble my words, an actual peach colored sky with just trees and snow flurries — but couldn’t. But this one’s nice too I agree.

  • Auntie Sandee,
    An astute interrogation. Such questioning is reminiscent of Manfred Mann’s Blinded by the Light, and the very obscure meaning behind the lyric:

    Blinded by the light / revved up like a douche / another shower in the night.
    Le Clown

    • I know right?! I love this song. I’d never heard it before a few months ago. It played on my ‘Mister Soul’ Buffalo Springfield Pandora station. Interesting because the station plays mainly sixties ‘garage’ music but it throws others into the mix. The main groups they play that I like are The Pretty Things, The Savage Resurrection and Wilkinson Tri-cycle. These songs reminds me when I was a kid and my dad had his studio downtown with all the groovy artists.
