American lead singer Stevie Nicks left the 1970's British band "Fleetwood Mac" in 1980 and went on to release her debut album "Bella Donna" in 1981. Released in February 1982, "Edge of Seventeen" was the third single from this album. Although the song wasn't a massive hit, it did very successfully chart in both the US and Canada at No. 11, however the song has certainly endured.
