Default Songs they rehearsed for The Dance...

I was watching the Destiny Rules DVD recently and saw, once more, that they rehearsed YMLF without Christine in 2003. That set me thinking...

I've always wanted to compile as definitive a list as possible of the songs which the band rehearsed, even if briefly, for The Dance, but which didn't make it either onto the DVD or the tour set list.

I heard they tried As Long As You Follow, Little Lies and Twisted. Does anyone have any idea what was tried out?



Edit: maybe ignore my post! I just found this thread from 2004... http://ledge.fleetwoodmac.net/archiv...p?t-15373.html

Poor Little Lies, even with two rehearsals it still didn't get on the setlist!

There's a recording of Oh Daddy from the Dance tour on youtube. I'm at work can't do youtube.

It's a shame that Little Lies has never been performed live with the Rumours lineup. I love The Dance version of Everywhere. It's too bad they didn't have time to set a version of Little Lies that they felt comfortable performing for the album or tour. Not even once. Or like the case of Oh Daddy, just for the tour. It'd be wonderful if they updated this song from the obsolete world of 80's pop.

One thing I'd like to stress is that the band really prepared and thought out their setlist for The Dance. It was a hugely important time, and they wanted to do something great for their reunion. I wish this rehearsal time and high level of effort was put into each of their recent tours. Maybe then we'd see more new takes on very old songs and more thoughtful arrangements: perhaps the re-emergence of the acoustic version of Gypsy people have been calling for, an updated Little Lies that fits Buckingham Nicks, a Sisters of the Moon that actually rocked and wasn't dead on arrival, a Lindsey version of Albatross (one of Fleetwood Mac's most celebrated and singular songs), etc. The songs are so good, just the simple re-worked intros to Rhiannon and Say You Love Me were hugely welcome changes for me and breathed new life into the songs.

(Hope you don't mind that I rewrote your quote to talk about one song instead of two)

Normally I would agree with you or anyone else that suggests an updated new arrangement of a song. But SYLM is so perfect exactly as it originally is that I was actually disappointed that it was the only updated classic. I didn't mind the banjo arrangement but I did not love it either.

Wait, were you disappointed in SYLM or disappointed that they didn't update more songs? Not sure I'm getting what you mean in your second sentence.

I definitely understand your point on the banjo. I liked it, but I agree SYLM is a perfect pop song. Actually, the importance of the song to the band was underlined in their choosing of it for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction performance. It absolutely belongs in the top 10 Fleetwood Mac's most iconic songs, over Everywhere, Little Lies, Hold Me, even You Make Loving Fun. I tried to make this point in that other thread. It's one of the songs the band will be most remembered for.

There was speculation on that 2004 thread I linked to that Where Were You might be an early version of Temporary One.
