And one would be 100% spot on. It’s the best song on the album and anyone saying otherwise probably thinks Dreams is better than Go Your Own Way or Empire State is better than Hold Me and they’d be wrong about those too!

I didn’t know whatever the hell the rest of this thread turned into and the whole argument about timing and Lindsey and Little Lies gave me a headache.

If I could turn the page, in time that I'd re-arrange just a thread or two.

She can't control her temper, AT ALL! It's hilarious, actually.

This is the one that's like "YOU'RE ALL A BUNCH OF LOSERS AND NOBODY COMES HERE ANYMORE" and all that? Rants on like four threads and then disappears again for 3-5 months?

My all time favorite here was gldstwmn or whatever her name was. She would get completely sauced, come in here, start absolute chaos with nonsensical gibberish, and then get banned.

That's the guy!!!!

Yeah, she was a mess. And was actually a mod! But you could see her posts get crazier, the later(drunker) in the night it was.

This. That’s all I was ever saying. MTV and VH-1 wouldn’t stop talking about it whenever they played “Little Lies.”

Hell, that’s how I found out about Dorsey Burnette.

One could, although “Isn’t It Midnight” was better, IMO. Christine’s second guitar-rock song (behind “Morning Rain”).

One In A Million will always be my favorite rocking song of hers. That guitar figure during the chorus, and that B-3. BLISS!

Oh... That was an accident. Caroline comes after Mystified.

I hear Little Lies and Everywhere much more today on the radio, where I rarely hear Seven or Big Love.
The label was going with the exact same release pattern that they did with Rumours: Lindsey-Stevie-Christine-Christine. The difference, as you noted, is that this time the first two singles, while top ten and 20 singles respectively, were nowhere near as big as the fourth….

Don't Stop was almost a number 1 hit. Would have been nice for Christine to get that slot.
