Just like the one-winged dove

Having only one wing makes it exeedingly difficult to fly

I didn’t really become familiar with Edge of Seventeen by Stevie Nicks until I started working at Silver Screen Design, because I simply hadn’t heard it that much in my youth. And whenever I did hear it on the radio (which happened quite often), I always thought she was singing, “Just like the one-winged dove”, and I thought, “That’s weird, I guess”.

Then one day it clicked. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of it before, being the avid bird nerd that I am. She was singing “WHITE-winged dove” (followed by a stellar bird call of “whoo whoo whoo”).

But apparently, I’m not the only one who heard that particular line wrong. A daughter of a co-worker of mine thought it was the same thing, among others.

Edge of Seventeen? More like Edge of Articulation, Stevie.
