"Secret Love," a song that Stevie Nicks originally demoed in the late '70s, has been remade for her In Your Dreams, her first album in a decade. Whereas the original version of the tune — which has been bootlegged for years by fans — had a stark, simple arrangement, the new recording is considerably more slick, modern and rocking in its style.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
