My Top 10 Fleetwood Mac Songs

Well nothing too exciting happened this day in classic rock history, so instead I'm going to do a top ten post!
Anybody out there fans of Fleetwood Mac? Well I'm super sad that I can't see them when they come to Texas, but it's right during finals here and it just doesn't look like it's going to happen.

Anyways, here's my top ten FM songs:

10. "Say You Love Me" (Fleetwood Mac 1975)
Catchy chorus!
9. "Say You Will" (Say You Will 2003)
"...that you love because you become someone else in an instant."
8. "Gypsy" (Mirage 1982)
"Lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice. And it all comes down to you."
7. "Go Your Own Way" (Rumours 1977)
A must. "Maybe I'd give you my world. How can I, when you won't take it from me?"
6. "I'm So Afraid" (Fleetwood Mac 1975)
Awesome guitar solo live. "I been alone, always down. No one cared to stay around."
5. "The Chain" (Rumours 1977)
The only FM song that includes writing credit to all five members. "If you don't love me now, you will never love me again."
4. "Silver Springs" (The Dance 1997)
Haunting. "Time casts a spell on you, but you won't forget me. I know I could have loved you, but you would not let me."
3. "Dreams" (Rumours 1977)
"But listen carefully to the sound of your loneliness, like a heartbeat drives you mad..."
2. "Landslide" (Fleetwood Mac 1975)
"Well I've been 'fraid of changing, 'cause I've built my life around you."
1. "Rhiannon" (Fleetwood Mac 1975)
I prefer The Dance version. For some reason I really like this song. Most people would expect "GYOW" or "Landslide" at the top spot, but for right now it's gotta be this song. "Dreams unwind, love's a state of mind."

I'm the type of person that really likes LYRICS of a song just as much as the music!

Are you any of you planning on see FM on this tour? What are your favorite FM songs?

I tend to like the early stuff better. Anything from Bare Trees, Future Games or Mystery to Me. I especially like Oh Well and Hypnotized.

"Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac is where it's at.

"The Green Manalishi with the Two Pronged Crown" was covered by Judas Priest, and as we all know, Santana's "Black magic woman" was originally a Mac tune.
"Smoebody's gonnna get their head kicked in tonight" is one of my all time obscure faves.
