"You are the weakest link- goodbye!"
I noticed all the "what's your favorite" song threads around here. Howz-about a "what's the weakest link on each album" thread??? Sound fun? Here's mine:
Buckingham Nicks: "Lola My Love"
White Album: "Monday Morning" or "Sugar Daddy"
Rumours: "I Don't Wanna Know"
Tusk: "I Know I'm Not Wrong"
Bella Donna: "How Still My Love"

Wild Heart: "Sable on Blond"
Rock A Little: "The Nightmare"
Tango in the Night: "You and I, Part II"
The Other Side of the Mirror: "Cry Wolf"
Behind the Mask: "Stand on the Rock"
Out of the Cradle: "Wrong"
Street Angel: "Greta" or "Docklands"
Time: pretty much the whole thing
Trouble in Shangri-La: "It's Only Love"
I threw in the solo stuff I was familiar with, but by all means chuck in whatever you feel like.

(directed at the thread, and no one personally) These kind of threads...picking what you think is the worst, is, by its very nature, designed to annoy, piss off, disappoint, anger, hurt, SOMEBODY'S feelings.
So, now that I've got the disclaimer off my chest...
...OUCH!! Some of the tunes you consider "weakest links" are some of my FAVORITES!! Obviously, our tastes are quite different.
Dog & Dustbin: can't find one
Mr. Wonderful: pick one of Jeremy Spencer's Elmore James type tunes as a keeper, dump the rest...too many for one album to hold
Pious Bird Of Good Omen: the tunes that were previously released on other albums are redundant
Then Play On: Danny's "When You Say" (what a stinker!)
Kiln House: Mission Bell
Future Games: What A Shame
Bare Trees: Mrs. Scarrott, you ARE the weakest link, g'bye!
Mystery To Me: not a weak song on the album!!!
Heroes Are Hard To Find: can't find one here either
Fleetwood Mac: by default "Sugar Daddy"
Rumours: can't find one (but I'm REALLY burnt out on "Dreams")
Tusk: Not That Funny
Live: can't find one
Mirage: Straight Back
Tango: Welcome To The Room...Sara
Behind The Mask: The Second Time
Time: honestly, I can't find one
Law & Order: It Was I
Go Insane: I Want You
Out Of The Cradle: can't find one
Gift Of Screws: Come
Bella Donna: Leather & Lace (maybe I'm just burnt out on this one)
Wild Heart: (taking another knee...whew!) the title cut
Rock A Little: all of side one except "I Can't Wait"
The Other Side Of The Mirror: ALL except "Rooms On Fire"
Street Angel: Jane
TISL: Candlebright (but it's growing on me)
Christine Perfect: not even Chris could improve "When You Say"...a stinker is a stinker
Chris's 1984 album: can't find one
King of Hearts: Poor Souls In Love
Pink & Black: can't really find one
Lucky Devils: Rhumba Diablo (by default)
Crazy Cool: can't find one
(Billy Burnette & Dave Mason to be entered upon a future edit of this post)
The Visitor: can't find one
I'm Not Me: can't find one
Paris: Rock Of Ages
Big Towne, 2061: 1 In 10
French Kiss: Lose My Heart
Three Hearts: Come Softly To me
The Other One: Spanish Dancer
Man Overboard: B666
1981: Bend Me Shape Me
Eye Contact: Love On The Line
Be-Bop: can't find one
Second Chapter: Skip-A-Dee-Doo
Midnight In San Juan: Angel's Delight
Hello There, Big Boy: Gettin' The Feelin'
1st: Take A Look At Mrs. Brown
Jeremy Spencer & The Children: Someone Told Me
Flee: all of side one (Deeper, Sunshine & Love Our Way Outta here)
Ok, call me biased, but I can't find any on any album. In the name of "fair play", I'll say ALL of "End Of The Game".
chiliD!!!!!!!!! I can't believe it??!?!? "When You Say" is my favorite song of all time!!!!!!!
And now you've hurt my feelings......
Bare Trees: Danny's chant (The poem doesn't count for me)
Mystery to Me: Forever
White Album: Warm Ways
Rumours: none (But i'm very burnt out on You Make Lovin Fun)
Tusk: I Know I'm Not Wrong
Live: One More Night
Mirage: Hold Me (Stop throwing things)
Tango in the Night: Welcome to the Room Sara
Behind the Mask: The Second Time
Bella Donna: NONE AT ALL
Wild Heart: Gate and Garden
Rock a Little: Imperial Hotel
Other Side of the Mirror: (Like Chili I HATE this album, they all suck but rooms on fire) but i'll pick Cry Wolf
Street Angel: Unconditional Love
Enchanted (disk 3, and Garbo and OMBTRRS): Somebody Stand by Me
TISL- It's Only Love
Never Dance with the Devil
He Will Burn You Down
I'm mainly gonna stick to the basics here:
White Album: Warm Ways "Yoooooouuu made me a woman tonight" oh please...
And for the record, I'm one of the ones who actually likes "Sugar Daddy".
Rumours: Oh Daddy (what's with Chris and the Daddy imagery?)
Tusk: I actually have to go with Tusk on this one! I can't believe so many people don't like "I Know I'm Not Wrong"
Live: Tough, but I actually don't really like this version of Landslide. I've got a couple concerts from 1977 or so I like a lot better
Mirage: Empire State
Tango: Little Lies is such an insipid little tune (Now they're throwing things at me, Hawkeye)
Behind thew Mask: Whew..I think the only thing I DO like is Freedom, but I never listen to this album.
The Dance: Ok..call me cruel, by I was really disappointed with Rhiannon. I know... I know we can't expect Stevie to do that nutzo thing for 30 years, but then maybe change how they do the song (a la Big Love or even Say You Love Me). This song has just become a shadow of itself and it makes me sad. Maybe it's time to drop it, even. (Now they're not even THINKING about you, Hawkeye!
Bella Donna: Kind of Woman
WIld Heart: either I Will Run to You or Nightbird
Rock A Little: Some Become Strangers and Talk to Me
TOSOTM: Cry Wolf
Timespace: Women shouldn't associate with (let alone record songs by) men with bigger hair than them. 'Nuff said
Street Angel: everything but Rose Garden
TISL: Bombay Sapphires
L&O: It Was I
Go Insane: Slow Dancing
OOTC: Say We'll Meet Again
Take on the situation but not the torment
I can still hear you saying you'd never break the chain
but you have...cause you da weakest link!
The White Album...GET REAL, the chain was STRONG then. No, no weakest or weak links here.
Rumours...The fact that Silver Springs was left off of the album.
Tusk..I think just Lindsey's general "softness" or his turn from good rock and roll tunes to "somewhat" radical punk. I think I'd erase "Save Me A Place" from the master tape.
Live...Don't Stop...replace it with a live version of Tusk or Sisters Of the Moon.
Mirage...no question about it...Empire State...that song is so annoying.
Tango In The Night...Family Man...see above. Runner up would be When I See You Again...Stevie...WHAT WAS THE MATTER BABY!?
There's always one....
Here are my least faves:
Buckingham Nicks: "Races Are Run" (drags)
White Album - "Warm Ways" (so corny)
Rumours - "Oh Daddy"
Tusk - "The Ledge" (that repetitive 'someone oughtta KILLS this song)
Live - "Farmer's Daughter" (annoying)
Mirage - "Empire State" (pointlessly weird)
Tango: - "When I See You Again" and "Family Man" (Talk about repetitive! What's a matter baby...what's a amatter baby...I am what I am am what I am!)
The Chain - "Make Me a Mask" (funky 'wish I were middle eastern' tune)
The Dance - "Rhiannon" (did we really need to hear that verse THREE times? And you don't have to sing it high, but how about uptempo?!)
BellaDonna - "Think About It"
Wild Heart - "Sable on Blond"
Rock a Little - "Sister Honey", "The Nightmare" and "Imperial Hotel"
The Other Side of the Mirror - "Long Way to Go", "Ghosts", and "Alice"
TimeSpace - "Desert Angel"
Street Angel - "Greta", "Docklands", "Love Is Like a River", "Just Like a Woman," and "Kick It"
Enchanted - "Thousand Days"
Trouble in Shangri-la - "That Made Me Stronger" (so self-indulgent!)
Law and Order - "Johnny Stew" and "That's How We Do It in L.A."
Go Insane - "Play in the Rain Parts 1 and 2" (what the...?!)
Out of the Cradle - "This Is the Time"
Ta da! Even the masters ocassionally have stinkers.
