Default The Challenge

When I heard this on Christine's album, I couldn't believe it. I think this song is heaven. It's sooooo Fleetwood Mac and Christine—Simple and Beautiful. Anyone know what or who it is about? I was obsessed with this song for over a month. It's just Christine being Christine.

John's boat was named The Challenge.

I agree that it's a beautiful song.

Nice little guitar solo by Eric Clapton, as well.

The song and performances on it are strong. I'm not nuts about the glossy production job, or the fade out (kinda' lingers) but I'm quibbling. Really good song.
