Chevy Electric Car Commercial Pushes 1987 Fleetwood Mac Hit "Everywhere" To Top Of iTunes



House company Chevy Electric Car Commercial pushes 1987 Fleetwood Mac hit “Everywhere” to the top…


Fleetwood Mac is the gift that keeps on giving. Their days of making hits are long gone, but the old songs were so well made that they just keep coming back.

Now a song called “Everywhere” from 1987 has jumped to number 3 on iTunes. Fleetwood Mac’s Greatest Hits are at number 11.

Why? “Everywhere” It is used liberally in a Chevy commercial promoting electric vehicles. Everyone in the car sings along.

“Everywhere” was written by Mac’s premiere songwriter, Christine McVie, and co-produced by Lindsey Buckingham.

McVie sold her catalog rights to Hipgnosis Music last year and they are busy putting the songs in commercials. Very successful I would say.

But that whole Mac catalog never goes away – “Dreams” had a massive renaissance last year, “Go Your Own Way” is in a pharmaceutical commercial, “Don’t Stop” is ubiquitous. I’m surprised that an older song, ‘Hypnotized’, hasn’t found its way into a commercial yet. It will, I’m sure!
