  • Lyrics
  • Sheryl Crow wrote this song about Nicks based on stories Stevie told her after they became friends. Crow produced this track as well, along with four other songs on the album.
  • The Trouble In Shangri-La album actually represents an accumulation of a decade-and-a-half's worth of work as well as three songs from the 1970s.

    Is it just our imagination, or does every other song by Stevie Nicks look back to her Fleetwood Mac days? In the course of compiling this album, Nicks got sidetracked... to say the least. One instance was writing a song for the 1996 action film Twister, which led to her crossing paths with Lindsey Buckingham and eventually the reunion of the band in 1997.
  • Sheryl Crow and Stevie Nicks go back a ways, and the two performers frequently collaborate. In return for Crow's work on this song, Nicks performed on Crow's 2002 album C'Mon C'Mon.
  • While we're on the subject of Stevie Nicks, pay no attention to the wild-hair rumor that Lindsay Lohan was planning to buy the rights to her life story and film it with herself (Lohan) in the lead role. While Lohan might have burbled this idea at some point, Nicks has said that this would happen - quote - "over my dead body" - end quote, along with something about somebody needing to "stop doing drugs and get a grip." Rowr!
