In my mind, songs that were recorded under the FM name are FM songs and solo songs are solo songs. I never liked it when FM performed Stand Back or Go Insane. They have too deep a treasure trove to chose from to play solo stuff as a band. I'm hoping not to hear any solo stuff from Stevie or new members on the upcoming tour.

Have to disagree with this statement. Out of the Cradle, Gift of Screws and Under the Skin are all great solo records and probably should have spawned radio hits for Lindsey. I'm not sure what the public bias is, but I enjoy Lindsey's solo work as well as his work with FM.

His stuff just lacks mass appeal, the music and he himself do not have an allure or mystique to most, in fact they are just irritating. Sorry.

I like Lindsey but I do agree with part of this. He was never gonna be a solo success commercially because aside from the fact that he mostly never wanted to make music that appealed to the masses, he just doesn't have that 'star' quality. Whether he intends to or not, he comes off too serious a lot of the time and just isn't that much a people person. He's gotten better over the years but back in the 80s he had issues and it showed in interviews, he always just seemed uncomfortable.

Go Your Own Way, Tusk, Big Love, and Trouble are the only hit songs he's written and performed. To this day, I'm confused as to why Holiday Road only peaked at #82, I think. It gets more airplay today than Trouble, certainly.

With FM, is it because more of his songs weren't actually released as singles? Monday Morning seemed like an obvious single, and so did Second Hand News. I think those two songs would have been hits, so why weren't they released?

Solo songs, after Trouble, Lindsey never seemed to get radio airplay. In fact, the radio would play Big Love by FM, but I always suspected if it had been a solo record, it would have been ignored by radio. Always seemed weird to me. Anybody have any theories. And can we keep it polite, with no snarky comments on either side?
I heard that some of his songs in the 80s played on the radio somewhat frequently. Idk how well they charted but I remember watching one of his weird music videos from I think Go Insane and in the comments people were talking about how they remembered the song and video from their college days and things like that.
Holiday Road is different because it was just another movie theme song when it first came out but later on became a cult classic alongside the movie itself. People love that song and I can see why because it's literally just a catchy hook repeated over and over.

.

That’s for sure. It has to easily be his most recognizable solo song. Someone somewhere failed miserably marketing the song at least for Lindsey’s sake. The popularity of that song is not properly owned by Lindsey. Sure it mainly just goes hand in hand with the movie series, but there should have been a slightly better effort to push the fact that it was a Lindsey Buckingham Song.
