Default Most Romantic Fleetwood Mac song?

I was talking to my friend about wedding songs the other day (he's getting married on saturday and I'm best man) and I got to thinking about what Mac ones would work.

The thing is, although so many of their songs are about each other, they're not often very romantic! As amazing as Silver Springs, Storms and others are, they wouldn;t work at a wedding cos the sentiment is just a bit wrong - haha! Unless they were being funny, which I'd love...

So I got to thinking, what is the most sright out, romantic love song that the Rumours line up have done? Not snarling at each other but actually being romantic?

I came up with one answer, which I want at my wedding...

It has to be Crystal. Just beautiful!!

Thoughts??

I agree with Crystal.
Songbird would be an obvious and lame choice (Tomkat wedding ) but a lot of Christine's songs would be suitable for a wedding.

I would say Songbird even if it is a bit obvious

Other than that Brown Eyes springs to mind although that is probably more sexy than romantic

Most of Christine's songs are quite romantic

Default For me...

it has to be As Long as You Follow. It is a beautiful romantic song with awesome harmonies.

Like it's already been said, can't go wrong with "Crystal" or "Songbird."

My wife and I had both "Songbird" and "As Long As You Follow" played at our wedding reception. "Songbird" was played as the last dance song for the reception (obvious I know, but fitting), and "As Long As You Follow" was played during the dinner.

Possibly Warm Ways, although I agree completely with Crystal.

Or Big Love

This is a really good question. Our picks (in no particular order):

Save Me A Place
Songbird
Sara (of course)

At the reception we played "Bleed to Love Her" from Say You Will and I also had "Stephanie" in there from Buckingham Nicks.

I think "Say You Love Me" might have been in there also. The rest of the Mac tunes didnt seem... appropriate (?) for wedding songs. But hell, it's your wedding, play what you want.

I agree that Crystal is one of the most romantic songs... It's a perfect wedding song!
