“Don’t Stop”, a hit tune on the band’s popular 1977 album “Rumours”, became the unofficial theme song of Mr. Clinton’s presidential campaign.
The song was played at Clinton’s campaign appearances & repeatedly at the 1992 Democratic Convention, as well as Election night 1992 when Mr. Clinton won a decisive victory over incumbent George H.W. Bush.

“Why not think about times to come
And not about the things you’ve done
If your life was bad to you
Just think what tomorrow will do”
“Don’t stop thinkin’ about tomorrow
Don’t stop it’ll soon be here
It’ll be better than before
Yesterdays gone, yesterdays gone”
