Is not the structure of this song similar to Think About Me? Both have 2 small verses and then the chorus, then the chorus again to fade out. Or you could say they have only one verse depending on your take.
Love Will Show Us How is also similar structure...one verse then chorus, chorus again and chorus to fade out.
Most pop songs have a chorus then second verse. These are unique.

Thatís why a song like Big Love, as good as it is, will never move me the same way Hold Me, Gypsy, and Little Lies do.
I agree. That's why I like Tusk but is not my favorite album. That collective musicianship is absence in many Tusk songs, specially Lindsey's.

Love will show us how has two versus in succession, then the chorus on repeat. Iím going by the album lyric sheet.

Would you agree its the same structure of Love In Store and Think About Me.

Those are such small verses that some may consider them one verse. But granted if they are 2 small verses in succession (I agree) thats what Love in Store and Think About Me do too.
Most pop songs go: Verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus.

There are some verses in songs that are several paragraphs before a chorus.

To clarify, Chris should have yelled SECOND VERSE so there was no confusion.

Pure pop perfection! As mentioned earlier, Fleetwood Mac was at their best when utilizing the three part vocal harmony.

Unpopular Opinion: "Love in Store" should have been the first single from "Mirage".

You won't believe this but I was driving today thinking about Love In Store and I thought about the same thing. Hold Me got deadlocked at #4 for months. Imagine Love In Store with a video on MTV. Its a good hit that makes it to #9 or #11. Then Hold Me is released. It could have been #1 since that deadlock would have passed. But of course that is a pipe dream to release 2 Chris songs back to back.
If Little Lies was the first single from Tango it would have been a #1 hit no doubt.
The Gypsy video was filmed before Hold Me. However no way the band was going to release a Stevie single from their new album with Bella Donna still high on the charts and its 4th single entering the top 40.

"Mirage" would have been a much bigger album had the band bothered to stick around and work the album sales circuit. "Love in Store" should have been a top 10 hit, but the single was an afterthought.

2 videos and a short 6 week tour -- and they ran off into the night toward various solo projects.

Same structure as Love In store for certain. The versus, though short, are separate and are exploited by little arrangement touches (like the additional guitar fills in the second verse of LWSUH.

It was an afterthought because of the short promotion, otherwise LIS would have fit perfectly within the album momentum.

According to Mick's book (yeah well if you can stand Homer's obsession with the goat, you can also stand mind with that book ).

I felt sick when we stopped touring. Mirage was number one and sales were strong in cities where we'd played. I wanted to be on the move, touring until the cows came home, but the others were less enthusiastic. Christine had sessions for her own solo album scheduled, and we'd been lucky to get Stevie at all. As soon as we left the road, Mirage died after five weeks at number one. The Australian band Men at Work, who had opened for us on the road, saw their album go to numberone shortly thereafter.

I am not obsessed with Old Goatsy. I'd give ANYTHING if she'd bit the big one instead of Christine. One less crazy, self absorbed narcissist in this world.
