Top 5 Christine McVie/Perfect Songs
 
So in this moment, my favorite Christine songs are:

One In A Million
Why
You Make Loving Fun
Sugar Daddy
Wish You Were Here (Duet with LB Live Milwaukee)

That's a crazy list, but she has so many songs. I wish I could add some Chicken Shack, but not there at the moment.

Macfan4life 01-15-2022 01:38 PM

Come A Little Bit Closer
You Make Loving Fun
Isn't It Midnight
Nights in Estoril
Why


Edit: I stuck to the challenge. We all stray and find clever ways of making lists around here. Of all her songs solo/Mac I stuck to the list. Now don't everyone flame me but I seriously dont remember this Sugar Daddy love until Homer mentioned it. Its like when I first joined this board, Mirage was bashed like crazy and I had to right the ship. Now if only I can do that magic again for Say You Will. ;)

Ho sh*t - I forgot Sugar Daddy. Going back to edit!

I've been here 11 years longer than you. This isn't the board it used to be. Which really has nothing to do with "the board", as much as changes in the internet. "Chit Chat" used to explode here(before Facebook).

That's ok. Brownie forgot The Smile I Live For after telling us for years it was his favorite from the 1984 album :lol:

My memory is just too good :)

So is your opinion of yourself.:laugh::D:wavey:

EDIT - for a minute, I thought you meant me, because that's MY last name. It's NOT his. You're like the one person here(that I like) that I'm not FB friends with.

At this moment, only five, at your repeated urging—-

You’re so bossy!

SYLM
YMLF
Smile I Live For
One in a Million
No Road is the Right Road

Tomorrow: the list might be different, except the top three.

I was a little bossy. But I wanted to see your 5 of the moment.

Homer's too if he can follow the rules. I'm not the boss.

You're not the bo$$. Yeah right! You're really $tevie, playing with us, right? Why did you get Lindsey fired?:mad:

These songs are so viable, I’d dip my finger in a plastic cup of beer and lick it. Just to show how much respect I have for everybody in the band.

God I love that interview. And then she talks about listening to Lindsey's ideas in the studio and says, "even if he's wrong", and laughs. She was the epitome of cool back then.

On Ice 01-16-2022 10:59 AM

Yeah that interview was so much fun to watch, going to see if I can find it on You Tube and take a watch. I could listen to her amazing English pub accent until the cows come up, god I love it.

You don't have the Tusk doc? Even cooler is that there's an outtakes DVD of it. It has a lot of the snark that was edited out of the released version.

My favorite is Stevie is going on about something, and they're standing behind her, rolling their eyes at her.:lol:

He tells her less vibrato, and Christine takes a long drag of her smoke and looks at LB and turns away. :woohoo:

I only had it on VHS(the doc, not the outtakes), and someone here sent them both to me on DVD.

You can tell that they didn't respect her, even back then.

What do you call someone who hangs out with musicians? Stevie and Mick!:D:sorry:

I may be of the few, but I think Mick, John and Christine are excellent musicians. Very capable, unique, and legendary. Stevie on the other hand is just an entertainer.

Two moments I remember:

1). Stevie is talking about trying to go for a Mills Brothers sound and then Lindsey and the engineers just begin talking right over her. She looks at them and then the camera with a WTF expression…


2). Stevie, Christine, Richard and Ken are listening to a playback of “Angel” and Stevie points out her singing “angel” in the background. Christine turns to Richard and in one of the most withering and sarcastic voices ever says, “angels in the background.” When she sees that Stevie has heard her she gives fake approval: “it sounds great.”

I don’t think you’re one of a few. Many know of their excellent musicianship—especially other pro players.

1). Yes! I love it. She's going on and on, then when they start talking over her, she twirls her finger beside her head, indicating that they're nuts.:D

2). I believe Bob Welch, that Christine was extremely sarcastic. You probably had to have thick skin to be around her on a daily basis, telling you that you're wearing a stupid, f*cking shirt.

I'm a musician. We make fun of drummers. It's in our contract to do so.

moon 01-17-2022 02:24 PM

Come on, you can't do only a Top 5!! I was trying to put 5 but only from the first albums with her I counted more! My Top 5 of Chris' angelical songs is:

- Brown Eyes. The amazing vocals of Chris at her best, with Peter's guitar at the end, and that hypnotic melody from the beginning
- Love In Store. A perfect way to open an almost perfect album. Lindsey and Stevie Nicks' backing vocals are simply a good complement to the song
- Come A Little Bit Closer. One of the most romantic and beautiful ballads I even heard!! Bob Welch solo, another good moment there!
- Hollywood (Another Kind Of Town). Chris at a more mature way, talking about her "negative"? to take part on the Time project. It has a good time extension, and pretty lyrics too
- Sooner Or Later. Simply perfect. One of her best songs ever. And it's incredible to know that she recorded it alone, just with a session guitar player and not so much, and then the rest added their parts and completed a truly masterpiece...

And my special mentions go to:
- Everywhere. A classic one, every year when I hear it I find it fresh and sticky!
- Over & Over. Another good one, to break the Rumours' atmosphere and introduce us to the Tusk days
- Homeward Bound. Christine as a rocker?? Yeah! A good rock song in a good album like Bare Trees.
- Wish You Were Here. (I said it before) The perfect way to close an almost perfect album. Long, emotional, and the piano mixing with the guitar is simply awesome...
- Warm Ways. One of my favourite ballads from FM, a good work of Lindsey on guitars

I love that you love Hollywood and Sooner or Later…

Sooner or Later is such a beautifully produced song. I wish Mick would have accented the end a little more.

Oh, thank you so much! :D
Time was definitely a good album to confirm that Christine's work there was probably the best, and in some cases (and respecting every single point of view) even better than some of her "oldies"...
