This week on the charts: Fleetwood Mac | Stevie Nicks "Seven Wonders" and "Rumours" Bound




USA - February 15, 2014
Fleetwood Mac released 'Rumours' 37 years ago this past February 4th and although the album took a giant leap up the charts this week after re-entering the charts three weeks ago, I'm not entirely sure it was due to it's anniversary.  This week the album moves up the Billboard Top 200 to No.59 from No.191 last week. That's a fairly significant increase in sales week over week.  The bounce on the charts could largely be due to Stevie's appearance on American Horror Story, as I didn't see any deep discounting of the album online. 


SEVEN WONDERS IS A SALES WONDER
Fleetwood Mac's classic '80's tune "Seven Wonders" featured during the cold opening of the season finale of American Horror Story on January 29th benefits from the exposure on the show and Stevie's Guest Appearance.  According to Billboard, the song sold 13,000 downloads during the tracking period ending February 2nd. This is an increase in sales of 9,086% vs what the song did the week prior. On the Rock Digital Songs Chart the song debuts this week at No.18.  In 1987 when the song was originally released as the second single from the album Tango In The Night, it peaked at No.19 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at No.2 on the Mainstream Rock chart.

Stevie's new film 'In Your Dreams' in it's 9th week of release hits it's lowest point on the Top 50 Music DVD Sales Chart moving down this week to No.27 from No.22 last week.

Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Ireland charts below... The UK to follow later today.

Just in:
SN has submitted a new song called ''Hit And Run'' and MF loves it, very rocking, lots of different ways the title is used in the song- about love affairs, being on stage, recording, having to leave someone or something, hooks galore and rather s straightforward lyrical thread throughout the song.
I hope we get to hear it. Soon! "Hit And Run''- 2/8/2014

@ 2nd Anonymous posting ... I love the song title, if it's real. Are you an insider (pun intended)? Glad to hear Stevie is down with this new project and submitting new material. I'm certain she's got a lot more stocked away somewhere. Keep handing it over, Stevie! Your fans want to hear it.

I can verify the song, "Hit and Run" and also another track called "Whenever You're Ready."

"Whenever You're Ready" .... by Stevie?

Bullshit people make this stuff up no songs are officially released including song titles untill the albums seqenced and finalized

Or unless the artists reveal titles of new songs during interviews. Stevie did a few interviews during her small tour in the summer of 2010 and revealed three or four song titles from the forthcoming "In Your Dreams." Rolling Stone contributing writer David Wild also reported more titles in in the fall of 2010 published in RS. Let's not forget we knew of the song titles, Miss Fantasy & Sad Angel, from Stevie & Lindsey WAY before we got to hear the songs released.

^^ ^^ ... all good points. Also, information has been leaked before in the comments sections on this very blog that have turned out to be true. Although just because a song title has been leaked doesn't necessarily mean THAT specific song will make the final cut of any release.
