The 11 Best Fleetwood Mac Songs

When I was 12 I saw the movie European Vacation. Besides wanting to go to Europe to experience a beer and sausage festival just like Rusty did, I became intrigued by the theme song..."Holiday Road." When I found out that it was sung by Lindsey Buckingham, I was very confused...that song was sung by a woman? Of course, not realizing that Mr. Buckingham was really a man had to be in fault with my F-Mac inexperience. But that's what college is for. Experimentation...especially with easy listening sounds of AM rock radio.

This week saw Mr. Buckingham's newest solo effort. In celebration, here are:

The 11 Best Fleetwood Mac Songs

1. Go Your Own Way (Rumors)
2. Little Lies (Tango in the Night)
3. Rhiannon (Fleetwood Mac)
4. Don't Stop (Rumors)
5. Seven Wonders (Tango in The Night)
6. Gypsy (Mirage)
7. Landslide (Fleetwood Mac)
8. Isn't It Midnight (Tango In The Night)
9. Sara (Tusk)
10. Brown Eyes (Tusk)
11. Revelation (Penguin)

Ps. This was possibly the hardest list I've had to do yet. The Mac is an extremely underrated band with about 25 songs that could have easily slid into this list. Go explore...please!

No list is complete without Silver Springs! Has to make the top 3!

Good list otherwise!

No offense, but nothing from Tango nor Mirage can possibly make a true list of FM's 10 best.

We also need to distinguish pre-LB/SN, and everything after.

Somebody a decade older than I am will have to make out the "pre" list.

The modern day list goes something like this:

1. Go Your Own Way (Rumours)
2. Landslide (Fleetwood Mac)
3. Tusk (Tusk)
4. Songbird (Rumours)
5. Rhiannon (FM)
6. Crystal (FM)
7. Gold Dust Woman (Rumours)
8. I'm So Afraid (Live)
9. Angel (Tusk)
10. Second Hand News (Rumours)
11. Never Make Me Cry (Tusk)
