Everyone has such good lists. Mine would change daily. She never recorded a bad song.
Here is my list

Why - a masterpiece. This song would never leave my list
You Make Loving Fun - such a groovy romantic rocker -another one never leaving my list
Isn't It Midnight - the highlight of Tango
Oh Daddy - mystical 70s organ
The Smile I live for - power ballad
Nights In Estoril - this song makes me travel to sunsets in Portugal. Its nostalgic love
Don't Stop - I still sing along in the car. A motivation anthem
Come A Little Bit Closer - Brilliant. I wish re-recorded with Stevie/Lindsey harmonies
One In A Million - the rocker that got rock stations playing her solo album
Bad Journey - So mysterious and my pick for her rare negative songs

Honorable mentions:
Love In Store - became a fan around this time. Lyrics make me blush
Hold Me - her best pop song ever
Ask Anybody
Sugar Daddy - all her White songs are stellar. hard to pick one
Think About Me
Brown Eyes

That is such a great forgotten song. I listened to it not too long ago and she really sounds great. Itís a shame that era of the band is largely forgotten by the masses (and the band). Christine has some incredible songs buried in those early to mid 70ís albums.

Warm Ways
As Long as You Follow
Isn't it Midnight
Never Forget
Songbird
Love in Store
You Make Lovin Fun
Don't Stop
Everywhere

From the moment I heard it, it became one of my favorites. Another one is Dissatisfied. A gem. The masses only go for the Stevie & Lindsey era but in the mid 70's they made some great music. Bob Welch is one of my favorite guitar players.

I could keep making top ten lists and exhaust her catalogue, all viable product!

Over and Over (I love this song, so dreamy and surprisingly wonderful live)
You Make Loving Fun (Her best pop song, the keyboards are some of the best ever in Rock & Roll)
Believe Me (again the keyboards and the hook, wonderful song that stayed in the early Buckingham Nicks set lists)
Why (as others have said, a masterpiece in every which way)
Think About Me ( #2 after YMLF in the pop category)
Hold Me (Hard to rank, because I love it as much as the other two above)
Say You Love Me (same with Hold Me, I would say this is her best hook)
One in a Million (My favourite solo song- I like it when she rocks a little)
Get Like You Used to Be (Listening to this one a lot, laid the groundwork for Don't Stop)
Songbird(It would feel sacrilegious not to include this at this time)

Bubbling Under: As Long as You Follow, Love Shines, Spare Me A Little (I know- belongs on the top ten, but Believe Me replaces it for me), Isn't it Midnight (best song on Tango) Brown Eyes (Peter Green version, her vocal matches his guitar so well, imagine them together on earlier records- wow)

That was by far the best B3 playing I ever heard her do (although a few live versions of Spare Me a Little have a perfect little B3 solo). Iím pretty convinced the Sugar Daddy B3 was two separate tracks, which is certainly no crime. Doing so gave it, as Steve Clarke said in the 70s, a Booker T. choke.

Sugar Daddy sounds so amazing with the 5.1 Surround Sound experience. Itís a shame everyone canít hear these classics in this format.

So true. My top 10 are pretty much equally #1. If I was asked to make a list of my top favorite songs of all time, in the world, in general, by any artist, Iíd probably get to #15 before listing a non-Christine song. She was just simply the best.
