I personally just don't get putting that ridiculous intro right in the middle of side just stops the flow of the album.
Besides Tusk, the Rumours line up always opened their albums with an peppy song.
Monday Morning
Second Hand News
Over and Over - a bit somber but still a love song
Love In Store
Big Love
Skies the Limit

A few other tid bits that are interesting is that Stevie never had a song on track one on any album except for Angel on one of the Tusk sides. Stevie also was never given a lead off single either. The elephant in the room is that band/record company saw Stevie's star power and went out of their way to not promote the idea she was the lead singer of the band.
Christine on Stevie 1984: "10 years ago she really had her feet on the ground but she seems to have developed her own fantasy world, somehow, which Iím not part of. We donít socialize much."
