The Chain is a Fleetwood Mac anthem and one of their best-known songs. The Chain is the bond that keeps the relationship going and never-ending.
Mick Fleetwood: "'The Chain' basically came out of a jam. That song was put together as distinct from someone literally sitting down and writing a song. It was very much collectively a band composition. The album don't resonate with me like it used to. The songs by Fleetwood Mac used to seem to much deeper and mysterious to me way back when. I know it has to do with the band putting their feelings so well into words and music, expressing so much emotional turmoil, which at that time reflected what was going on in my own life. Now I don't suffer from the angst so I don't relate as much to it. L from Niagara Falls, OnListen with headphones and before the song even starts, you can hear someone (Buckingham?) whisper "F " L-NF
