That's all.

I love almost anything Christine has done. The one song I typically skip is 'So Excited'. Something about it just gets on my nerves.

Shush, you guys. When You Say is awesome! Awesome, I tell you!

But I seem cursed/blessed with the ability to enjoy absolutely anything Danny Kirwan writes.

"When You Say" is his major clunker. Everything else he did with Fleetwood Mac is top notch. Like they say, "you can't win 'em all" (unless you're the UCLA basketball team in the late '60s/early '70s, that is.)

Maybe it would've fared better had he waited & put it on Second Chapter...seems like it would fit that album better than Then Play On.

I love Only Over You and find myself singing it sometimes, but I never cared for Sugar Daddy.

When You Say is something Danny Kirwan did originally in the Spanish guitar style with Chris accompanying. I thought for some reason they decided they needed a track quickly for the album and just had her overdub her own vocals. The Danny version is likable but the one with Christine vocals they should have left on the shelf, not sure which one actually came out first, it might've been Christine's.

Mm, Becca. Yeah... I listened to When You Say again and I think I need to retract my "awesome" adjective. "Likeable" is a much more honest word to use. I still stick by it, though.

I love Danny, but that song is just painful. It's his Secret Love demo. Clunkity-clunk.

Oh Daddy is nice when you listen to the center-channel mixes like they did on Classic Albums. It's just an uncomfortable song to sing along to.

Songs I don't like:
- Morning Rain
- Over My Head (Just on the album; I like the Rosebud performance)
- Oh Daddy
- Warm Ways ("Make me a woman tonight" )
- Over and Over
- So Excited
- Ask Anybody
- Wheeennnn Youuuu Saaaay
- Keeping Secrets
- Bad Journey and the majority of In The Meantime.

I found out that if I skip When You Say, I can listen to the rest of the Christine Perfect album.

Others:
Only Over You
Warm Ways (can't really listen to this all the way)
Over and Over

*Bad Journey is actually a guilty pleasure of mine among the ITM tracks. :P

From my lurking here, I figured that it's not a very popular track. That duet with herself in the bridge is my favorite part of that song.

I always love the songs people hate the most.
Love:
Mystified (amazing harmonies and a island feel)
Honey Hi (closing harmonies are sublime)
You'll Never make me cry ...simply beautiful
One More night....love it, and Stevie and Lindsey's yearning harmonies
Only over you...I'm a sucker for FM's harmonies, they are awesome on the fade out
Wish You were here....love it

Don't love, but don't hate

Sugar Daddy
Don't Stop...just am sick of it, that's all
Some of the stuff from Behind the Mask..eh..except for the song BTM...it's GREAT.
Never heard Time...couldn't bring myself to listen
