Re-imagining Fleetwood Mac - Christine McVie Edition



 Day two of re-imagining the Fleetwood Mac brings us to Christine McVie, who sang with the band for a few albums prior to Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks' recruitment.  That said, I'm only including songs after the self-titled Fleetwood Mac album (1975). As much as l love Stevie, Christine may have written and sang my favorite Fleetwood Mac tunes, including Little Lies and Isn't It Midnight.  Neither song is included here for various reasons.  I wanted this experiment to feel more like a solo work.  It's one thing to have another member chiming in for some background vocals but for songs like Little Lies and Hold Me, the rest of the band have too prominent of contributions.  As great as those songs are, they sound too much like a collaborative effort...and don't necessarily fit for purposes of this post. Here is Fleetwood MacVie:
  1. You Make Loving Fun (Rumors)
  2. Think About Me (Tusk)
  3. Say You Love Me (Fleetwood Mac)
  4. Sugar Daddy (Fleetwood Mac)
  5. Never Forget (Tusk)
  6. Over My Head (Fleetwood Mac)
  7. Everywhere (Tango In The Night)
  8. Brown Eyes (Tusk)
  9. Oh Daddy (Rumors)
  10. Over & Over (Tusk)
  11. Honey Hi (Tusk)

What about "Songbird"? Absolutely beautiful song.

Songbird is a great song...but this isn't a "best of" - this is about making a cohesive album.

Two of my favorite McVie songs, also didn't make this album.
