Default Fleetwood Mac: At The Movies (playlist)

I don't know if this is complete, but I decided to put together a playlist for my iPod that is typically awesome. It is a playlist of all the songs the Fleetwood Mac members have done for movies. The result is a collection of some of their finest solo work, as well as a real history of the band.

I'm not counting stuff like Trouble and GYOW and Don't Stop which have appeared in movies after their release on albums. Nor am I included TV songs (Free Fallin') or songs that appeared on previous releases, even the Best Buy release (Steal Your Heart Away which appeared in the iMax movie prior to SYW!).

Anyway... Are there any soundtrack entries I'm skipping? And isn't this a fascinating playlist?

Imagine how powerful this is: Crystal followed by Twist of Fate followed by Touched by an Angel followed by Shut Us Down. Holy cow! They are still singing to each other. It's the soundtrack of their lives, truly. So I titled it: Movie Love.

p.s. -- They've been robbed by the Oscars

This would make such a great CD. Fleetwood Mac Goes to the Movies or Stevie, Lindsey and Christine Go to the Movies

Violet and Blue and Battle of the Dragon are becoming two of my favorite Stevie songs.

Violet and Blue actually gives me the chills! [wierd lol]

However, alas, how I miss my CM version of 'CHFIL'

Seriously though, their soundtrack stuff is some of thier best solo work!
nice thread!

[they will be on the Aloha soundtrack] Entertainment Weekly

http://www.ew.com/article/2015/05/14...oha-soundtrack

Cameron Crowe’s romantic comedy Aloha hits theaters later this month. In addition to its stellar cast—which includes Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin, and John Krasinski—the film also has a stacked soundtrack curated by the Almost Famous director himself. Tunes by artists including Fleetwood Mac, Beck, Hall & Oates, Kurt Vile, and the Tallest Man on Earth will score the film, which follows a military contractor (Bradley Cooper) as he returns to Honolulu to revisit his triumph as part of the U.S. space program.

Good job with the list.
Does anyone know the reason Stevie did not give permission for Violet and Blue be used in the movie? I was once told the reason many moons ago but forget. If you watch the movie when Violet and Blue comes on...its not Stevie singing the song. Her song appears on the soundtrack though. Violet and Blue was actually a pretty big hit on the rock stations in 1984.
Maybe there was some other reason but when I watched Against All Odds, I noticed right away that the Violet and Blue version was different than the soundtrack version. Then I remember reading they had to use another version of the song for some reason and its not Stevie singing. Its been moons since I have seen this movie.
I am getting old and my memory is not what it used to be Does anyone know the reason?

Both "Rhiannon" and "Say You Love Me" are in the Paul Newman film, "Slap Shot".

"Tusk" appeared on the soundtrack of a horror movie of the same name.
Also IMDb has a list of all the soundtrack credits for Fleetwood Mac: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1393605/?ref_=ttsnd_snd_10
