Stevie Nicks wrote the song "Landslide," and it is performed by the British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac. Fleetwood Mac's self-titled album from 1975 featured the song for the first time. The original recording was included on the compilation albums 25 Years – The Chain (1992) and The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac (2002), and a live version was released as a single 23 years after The Dance, the live reunion album. "Landslide" peaked at No. 51 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 10 on the Adult Contemporary chart in the United States. In October 2009, "Landslide" was certified Gold in the United States for sales of over 500,000 copies. "Landslide" sold 2,093,186 copies in the United States in 2017, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
This song is about a person who decides to change after being deceived by someone or a group of people to whom she has given everything.
The term "landslide" refers to the breakdown of a relationship when she withdraws her affection after being betrayed by a person or group.
She had spent her entire life working to develop this relationship (climbed a mountain), but the betrayal has prompted her to come to a halt (turn around) and examine how she sees herself and how others see her (her reflection).
This betrayal makes her feel alone, unwanted, and unappreciated—"in the snow-covered mountains," as she puts it—so she resolves to withdraw her love (I take my love, and I take it down), bringing the relationship to a sudden, devastating end/landslide.
She ponders what love is, whether she can rise above this betrayal (Can the child within my heart rise above? ), and whether she can make this change while still living a pleasant life (Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?). Can I deal with the changes in my life's seasons?).
She claims that she has built her entire life around this person/group (I built my life around you), so separating her love from them is difficult, but now that she is older and has matured, she is able to do so because she will no longer give to them after they have abandoned her alone "in the snow-covered mountains."
She instructs this person/group to leave this relationship (So take your love, take it down) because if he/she thinks about the relationship and how the treachery has left her abandoned, they would understand why she has withdrew her love and why the relationship has ended.
