Tango in the Night

Fleetwood Mac

Album Tango in the Night

“Tango in the Night” is the fifth track from the Fleetwood Mac album of the same name, which was released in 1987.

The new age rock song sees Lindsey Buckingham unable to sleep, so therefore he begins to reminisce on times spent with a previous lover. Buckingham is unable to let go of his lover and these memories, and wants to keep them in his mind for as long as possible: “I keep the dream in my pocket
Never let it fade away”. 

There is not music video for the song, but the audio video on Fleetwood Mac’s YouTube channel has over 1.6 million views.
