A Fleetwood Mac cover, excellent acoustics, and two beautiful women.

Fleetwood Mac
Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester teamed up with Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Dana Williams on a cover of Fleetwood Mac's '70s classic "Dreams" earlier this year and the result is exactly as pretty as you'd expect.

"Dreams" was written by singer Stevie Nicks for the British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac's 1977 album Rumours, and remains one of their best known songs. The lyrics are so enchanting, especially the line "Players only love you when their playin" coz it’s absolutely true. Its the same old theme: the relationship-gone-wrong vibe... woman thinking that a man will miss what he had (even if it's not true). Stevie Nicks' original is still a favourite.

"Now here you go again, you say
You want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
It's only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost, and what you had, and what you lost"
