Written by Stevie Nicks, "Silver Spring" was originally intended for the seminal, multi platinum, Rumors. Years after the fact Nicks commented that in a way it's lack of inclusion on the effort marked a growing tension in the band. It's not surprising because the group has three great writers and only so many slots. "Silver Spring" did become a B-side however. With it's quiet and delicate sound, the meditative song was immediately another Nicks gem. The track's inherent longing reportedly came from the ending of the romantic relationship between Nicks and Buckingham. The song appears on the 1992 box set 25 Years: The Chain. In 1997 the song got a second life. During the filming of the reunion concert that brought Nicks and Buckingham back to the fold, "Silver Springs" was on the set list. In the live version from The Dance doing this song brought startling drama. When the lyrics, "Time cast a spell on you, but you won't forget me…" were sung, something sparked within Nicks. In one of the best moments of the concert Nicks sings part of looking at ex-boyfriend Lindsay Buckingham. She soon shouted, "Never get away" a few times, all but relishing the lingering affects of their union. Very rarely has a song had two lives as two distinct entities. Even rarer is the fact that both versions of "Silver Springs" are potent in their own way.
