me too. Why it's not on the poll is beyond me.
1) You and I parts 1 and 2
2) Where we belong. Wish that would have been finished, it's so catchy.
3) Special Kind of Love

It was a hard pick between Seven Wonder and Isn't It Midnight. I really appreciate Seven Wonders at a slower pace with a sparser music arrangement. It's almost more atmospheric that way and I really like Stevie's vocal here, there's some emotion that comes through when she says "again" at the end of the chorus when its slowed down. I also LOVE listening to it on a stereo because you can distinctly hear Christine and Lindsey in the different channels.

However, Isn't It Midnight is the bomb no matter what form its in. I can't say I prefer it to it's album arrangement (the farting keyboard on the verses is pretty lame), but its interesting hearing a moody synth version of the song and the more natural, slower vocal. These two things create a whole different vibe that's just so neat to listen to. Christine's harmonizing with herself on the chorus is also cool to hear. The keyboard solo is nice too, though it pales to Lindsey's stellar guitar playing on the album cut.

Juliet, the alternate Mystified, and Ricky hurt my ears though .

Another vote for You and I. Part 1 might be my favorite track on the whole album. I wish they would have included this over part 2 on the LP.

I always thought the same thing from the day I bought the Big Love single back in 1987. I loved the beginning music intro. It was another missed opportunity for a great Stevie vocal.

I know everyone loves to hate Ricky, but Iíve always found it to be catchy & adorable.

I really like most everything from the Tango sessions, though. You & I Pts 1-2; Down Endless Street, Joan of Ark... another entire album could have been cobbled together from the Tango leftovers.

Agree with all of this. I voted for Special Kind of Love, in terms of a favorite from Deluxe that we hadn't heard before. I know the less fleshed out terrible quality demo has been around forever, but this one was such a surprise, and so classic Lindsey, catchy.

Ricky and You and I Part I are probably my favorite tracks from the Tango Sessions, period. It still kind of throws me that Part I is sped up a tad, from the B-Side version. Has this bothered anyone else? I'm sure they had the version we got on Deluxe ready to go that way back in '87, but decided against it.. I like the original speed better, just lends a hand to the dreamy quality of the track.

My top 3:
1. Where We Belong
2. Ricky
3. Mystified instrumental

I really love Tango and just about everything that came out of that era.

I LOVE Where We Belong. And Ricky. SO MUCH.

I love Ricky because it's just so Tango.

Iíve always loved Mystified, I think itís atmospheric & beautiful. Iíve never understood the hate this song generates. Although I suspect itís rooted in the same reason why some donít care for Carnival Begin: thereís only supposed to be one woman in Fleetwood Mac who is allowed to enter into the ethereal.

I wish they had included Christine's version of "Can't Help Falling in Love" which is supposedly what kickstarted the Tango sessions. It's basically a Fleetwood Mac track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnt8_AsW_bQ

Special Kind Of Love is the kind of song I never knew about (aside from the demo) but always wanted to hear... if that makes any sense.
