This Saturday, May 11th, marks the 30th anniversary of Stevie Nicks’ fourth album The Other Side Of The Mirror. The album features the hit “Rooms On Fire” and notable tracks “Long Way To Go” and “Two Kinds Of Love". The Other Side Of The Mirror was a huge commercial success. It reached #10 on the US Billboard albums charts, and achieved platinum status for selling in excess of 1,000,000 units. The album reached #3 in the UK and is Nicks' highest charting album in various European countries including Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK.
Always a trendsetter, 1989 was no different for Stevie, other than the fact that the 80s was an 'interesting' time for everyone when we are talking about fashion, hairstyles and of course, music!
As the "Rooms On Fire" video depicts, hair was very important. A lot of hair. The most hair. So many videos in the 80s had that soft light glamour look, and Stevie nails it.
So in honour of 30 years since The Other Side Of The Mirror, we are gonna take a look at just a few of Stevie's great 80s looks...
"I Can't Wait" from 1985's Rock A Little is more 80s gold. The opening riff and electric drums are about as 80s as you can get. Oh wait, then the synth bass kicks in and it's utimate 80s.
"Talk To Me", also from Rock A Little is the ballad we all needed in the mid-80s. Complete with wind machine, and of course, mountains of hair.
Stevie was also busy with Fleetwood Mac in the 80s, the "Little Lies" video from 1987 is also the epitome of 80s styling and *ahem* special effects.
