Stand Back

There's a great legend behind this song. Apparently Nicks was driving along when 'Little Red Corvette' came on the radio. She started humming along to the synth lines and the melody for 'Stand Back' developed from that. So she called Prince to tell him the story and ask him to play synthesizers on the album recording. When Prince showed up to record, he rolled into the studio without saying a word to anyone, walked over to the synths, laid down the tracks then, says Nicks, "he just got up and left as if the whole thing happened in a dream."
