I wish she could still sing like that.

It sucks watching your lifetime heroes wither up...preparing for the inevitable.

I know what you meant. 2004 vs 2014. However, she chose to work with worn out tools and in a way her return quietly put Fleetwood Mac back on the superstar map. Their 2013 didn't do nearly what they did in 2014 2015.
In fact, the Staples show in 2013 had empty sections. And, not behind the stage. vs 8 Forum shows sold out.

Her return made FM's ending TRIUMPHANT!

Until the $tupid old GOAT got Lindsey fired. I'm still waiting for karma to nail her....HARD.

Nice to see a lot of agreement in these picks. Sticking with the Rumours-lineup ('75 thru Tango) per OP's request, I'll go with these 10 worst in chrono order:

Sugar Daddy
What Makes You Think You're The One
Never Make Me Cry
I Know I'm Not Wrong
Not That Funny
Only Over You
Welcome To The Room... Sara
Family Man
When I See You Again
Mystified

I am scratching many of you off my Christmas card list for listing Sugar Daddy and Only Over You on their list. Are you kidding me? Sugar Daddy could have been on the Heroes album. Its one of the few songs on the White Album that has the bluesy original sound prior to Buckingham/Nicks. Now that is off my chest, I will give this a whirl.

This is tough if we just have to stick to the Big 5 albums! (plus The Dance I suppose). Most of the songs I genuinely don't like are from post-Rumours. I will give it a go though, even if pretty much all of these songs have SOMETHING redeemable about them:

1. Ricky: Gag, probably my least favorite Christine vocal ever. Also feels like filler.
2. Family Man: Cool guitar. That's the only nice thing I can say about this one.
3. You and I Part II: Just a very fluffy, nothing song for me. It's not unpleasant but its probably the least memorable thing they ever produced. It works okay in the context of Tango but not AT ALL on its own. The only time I see it discussed AT ALL is when its being (understandably) negatively compared to You and I Part I.
4. Empire State: I guess I kind of like that it adds a twisted sort of vibe to the otherwise sterile Mirage, but I would by lying if I said I ever listened to it by choice.
5. Cool Water: I just don't get this one sorry
6. My Little Demon: I wish I liked it more than I do. Loved all the other new songs for The Dance though!
7. The Final spots are going to have to go to some of Lindsey's Tusk songs. I'm trying HARD but they are taking the longest to grow on me (not just the production- his vocals especially.) The only ones I like are Tusk, I Know I'm Not Wrong (cool music!) and What Makes You Think You're The One.

It seems like I hate Lindsey by the looks of this list lol. I really don't, its just that when he misses with me he misses HARD. His stuff on the White Album and Rumours is some of my favorite stuff of the Macs catalog. His white album stuff in particular I think steals the show.

Amen about Sugar Daddy, one of the best yet oddly maligned songs in the band’s catalogue. So many people with wrong opinions! lol.

Good list. I never got “Ricky“ either. I would have included it in my list if I thought we were able to count non-album tracks and outtakes. Still, my least favorite Christine song is “Skies”— it, like “Ricky”, is so uncharacteristically below par for her.

Sometimes this board amazes me. Its a Fleetwood Mac fan site and we all like the Mac for its sound and rhythm section (plus the Stevie fans).
Sugar Daddy sounds SO Fleetwood Mac. Lindsey's guitar is so freaking good. When the music plays it makes me want to grab my tamborine and dance like Stevie. Even the backing vocals at the end are so good. But Christine's organ playing is so freaking funky! The lyrics are so good too. It has every aspect of what makes the Mac a supergroup. So bouncy and peppy

Preach!
On "my" greatest hits discs, the two songs from White that always make the cut are World Turning and Sugar Daddy! SD is so cool and funky!!! Who cares about the title's subject matter!

I like the subject matter. Its a love song and she draws the line of pretending to love someone for material wealth. Its a very creative way to express true love. She wants the luxury yet NO ONE is going to take her away from her man.
I dont think there has ever been a song written so creatively like this before.
My favorite line is "And if I needed whiskey, he could serve it to me neat"

Agreed. Christine used to be the coolest. You know, back before she became a doormat for $tevie's childish whims.

What would be cool is actually serving Christine whiskey and trying to be neat and impressing her during her wild days.
