She was always the only one I really wanted to meet.

Having said that, I have met some of my heroes(doing sound for big acts), and sometimes it's a huge letdown, when they turn out to be assh*les.

I can totally hear her telling me what a stupid f*cking shirt I'm wearing, and I'd be crushed!

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

It lacks a good chorus.

Exactly.
You could say the same thing about epic songs Landslide or even Stairway to Heaven.
Simple pop songs with 10 words and simple chorus are extremely over rated. Songs are about music, rhythm, guitar solo, beat, lyrics and mood. You never hear anyone say...gee that song has a great chorus

What about the epic song Gypsy. How dare some cheezy chorus screw up such a beautiful song. THANK GOODNESS not all songs are like Talk to Me

I don't event think there is even any icing there. Just an empty plate with a few icing crumbs

My problem with the song is it doesn't go anywhere. Yes it's catchy at first. But the chorus sounds the same as the verses. There is no change in instrumentation.

I know Stevie's songs also stay the same but Lindsey would always change the instrumentation throughout the song to shake things up a bit.

Of course you do! Go Your Own Way, Dreams, Don't Stop, The Chain, all songs with really famous choruses that a casual fan can pick out.

The chorus in Landslide is iconic. 'Time makes you bolder, children get older, I'm getting older too' is one of Stevie's most well known phrases. Very different from Sugar Daddy.

I don't listen to Bob Dylan so no idea.

Does Gypsy have a chorus? She only sings 'to the gypsy...' once. And Lindsey varies the instrumentation enough to make it interesting as its own section.

That was my point
You were stating that Sugar Daddy had no chorus so you did not like it. I was pointing out that some of the best and greatest songs don't really have a set chorus to repeat verse after verse.
Oddly enough your post made my point even stronger. Thank you

Sugar Daddy f*cking ROCKS. I've never understood how some people don't love it!

Nope.

Sugar Daddy does a chorus. 'When it comes to love' is the chorus.

I was saying it's not strong enough, as for the reasons I've previously stated.

Lindsey's Mirage songs sucked. Having trouble coming up with the last two(three), so I plugged some Lindsey Tusk songs in.

different strokes. Book of Love is good. So not all of his songs sucked.

Of the five Rumours era albums, Mirage is definitely at the bottom for me.
