Christine turns to Richard and in one of the most withering and sarcastic voices ever says, ďangels in the background.Ē When she sees that Stevie has heard her she gives fake approval: ďit sounds great.Ē
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.

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.

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

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!
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"...

I won't name 5 but any list I made would include:

Hold Me
Calumny
SYLM

I am tempted to say Over My Head as well, but that might be one that changes depending on when you ask me. The other 3 would never change.

I like that you included Love In Store. It almost made my list. It has always been one of my favorite songs. The bouncy beat, the harmonies, and the lyrics make be melt Its pure pop perfection. I love how Chris bounces while singing it live. The band almost sounds like a doo wop band the harmonies are so good. Its a killer live too. I know the band spent a fortune on 2 videos for Mirage and the band was not getting along but it was a miss not to do a video for this song. In peak MTV time there were no songs in the top 20 without a video. A video could have launched Love In Store into the top 10. It was a huge medium to promote and get airplay. Of course the band did not mind, they wanted to hurry up and just finish the Mirage tour and go their separate ways.

Yes, Northern Star is so beautiful. One of the main things that allow me to forgive Dan Perfect for his many offenses against humanity.
