Stevie Nicks singing Silent Night

VINTAGE VIDEO: ‘Silent Night’

Repost

In this installment of Vintage Videos, Stevie talks about her favorite Christmas memory: waking up on Christmas Eve to find her dad unexpectedly building a baby buggy for her because “Santa was very, very busy tonight.” The interview is followed by Stevie’s Top of the Pops performance of “Silent Night,” which she recorded for A Very Special Christmas in 1987. She is joined by Robbie Nevil, best known for his hair and Top 10 1986 hit “C’est La Vie.”

Like on the classic ’80s music-countdown show Solid Gold, guests of Top of the Pops seemed to lip-synch their performances. But Stevie has the distinction of being one of the few artists to have sung live on both shows — extremely rare for the time. That’s nothing to keep silent about! Well, to be accurate, most singers performing on Solid Gold did actually sing live, according to Michael Miller, the show’s musical director for eight years. “The vocals were live and the music was taped. The reason for taping the music is that live music didn’t always sound quite as good as it should have when played through a television’s audio system.”
