Since I am a HUGE Christine fan this is like picking your favorite children.....impossible. But as always, I never chicken out. For the record, I LOVE all Christine songs. My lists come from the top of my head and from my gut. I don't know how to limit it to 15 so off the top of my head in no particular order:

Come a little bit closer
Why
Just Crazy Love
Prove your love
Love in Store
Nights in Estoril
Brown Eyes
Songbird
The smile I live for
Ask Anybody
Warm Ways
Isn't it midnight
You make loving fun
Never Forget
Over and Over (live)

Completly understood. Narrowing it down to just fifteen is quite difficult. Very interesting list you put together.

I had a lot of fun creating this list, as with my previous ones. I guess I've started some sort of seires.

Of course! Christine has ALWAYS written and sung excellent songs. I haven't heard any duds her entire career. She really has the knack for song writing. Her early Mac songs are some of the best and are the stand outs of those early Mac years. I actually have guilt because I did not include any songs from In The Meantime. I love every song on that album. I would not even know which one to pick. Warm Ways was a last minute addition because that day coming home from work I heard it on Sirius-Xm "The Bridge" channel. Its so soothing, so romantic and the perfect love song. To listen to how Mick plays the drums so softly and Lindsey on Guitar, and Stevie providing back up "ooooooooo" makes you melt and blush just listening to it. It would make the perfect first dance at a wedding song. Christine really writes amazing love songs but Warm Ways is probably her most gushing

Look at this gem I found on youtube. Makes you want to be in love

Alright, I'll give it a go--and I'll include some of her solo things:

1. Say You Love Me
2. Friend (acoustic version)
3. You Make Loving Fun
4. Forgiveness
5. Oh Daddy
6. Crazy 'Bout You Baby (live-in-studio version from Madison Blues, 1971)
7. Believe Me (Sausalito soundboard, 1974)
8. Why
9. Don't Stop (don't kill me: the original version of the song is dynamite)
10. Songbird
11. Over My Head
12. Brown Eyes ("Yesterday's Tears" version, 1978)
13. No Road Is the Right Road
14. I Want You
15. Get Like You Used to Be (live, Passaic, NJ 1975)

There are others. And if you get me on another day and I might substitute a few of these for "Smile I Live For," "Hollywood," "Remember Me," or "Warm Ways"...
