Default Just Tell me That You Want Me- more of a Stevie Nicks tribute album?

I really enjoy this Fleetwood Mac tribute album, but as I was listening to it today, I was struck by how many of the songs on the CD are Stevie Nicks songs. Out of the 17 tracks, 10 are written by Stevie, 1 is written by Christine, and 2 are written by Lindsey. The other 4 songs are written by the pre-Rumours lineup.

This really blows me away! And the wide variety of Stevie songs- sure, there's Rhiannon, Dreams, Landslide, Silver Springs, and Gypsy, but also songs like Straight Back, Sisters of the Moon, Gold Dust Woman, Angel, and Storms.

I'm curious what other people think about this. Why did these artists choose so many Stevie songs over Lindsey and Christine? Good choices or bad choices? What does this say about the influence the band members have had on newer artists? Which songs do you like the most? I really love Think About Me, Straight Back, Gypsy, Silver Springs, and That's All For Everyone.

I think it was a licensing thing. Enjoy!

I don't think it was a licensing thing. The artist surely had the right to choose which song they would sing, and if Matthew Sweet wanted to sing Over My Head but was told he couldn't, I don't think he would have chosen Storms instead.

In the liner notes, every member of FM was acknowledged, so that suggests any song from the FM catalog was up for grabs.

I loooove Lykke Li's version of Silver Springs from this album. It's gorgeous. Personally I've always put down the over-emphasis of Stevie songs down to the fact that hers are, generally, the more interesting to interpret. It's harder to sing a Christine or Lindsey song without it being karaoke. While the Stevie songs on this album sound very different to the original versions.

The cover of Straight Back by Washed Out is a stand out to me. I went back and relistened to this album yesterday. Also, Think About Me by The New Pornagraphers remains my favorite (but Think About Me is a favorite of mine anyway).
