1983 Stevie Nicks – If Anyone Falls In Love
Stevie Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac in 1975 and became a part of one of the most successful bands in history. The band recorded the album Tusk in 1979 and went on a world tour for the next two years.
Stevie spent some of her downtime during the tour writing songs for a solo album. She founded Modern Records in 1980 with Danny Goldberg and Paul Fishkin so she would have a label to release her new material on. Her first two singles from the album reached the top ten on the Hot 100, after which two more singles reached the top twenty and the top forty.
The Wild Heart came out in 1983 and the first single from the album was the hit Stand Back. The single featured an uncredited synthesizer performance by Prince. It reached the top ten on the Hot 100, #2 on the US Rock chart, and #12 on the US Dance chart.
The next three charting tracks from the album reached the airplay-only Top Tracks list, peaking at #12, #35, and #19.
Sandy Stewart is a singer, songwriter, and keyboardist from Houston. She worked with Stevie on the album, playing synthesizers and piano and singing lead and backup vocals. She also co-wrote three of the songs on the album with Stevie. The next single, If Anyone Falls In Love, was one of them.
The record peaked at #14 on the Hot 100 and #8 on the US Rock chart.
Sandy also co-wrote Stevie’s next single, Nightbird, but it only reached #33 on the Hot 100.
