Gonna fly out and argue with you!!

Wait, you dislike “Temporary One” but defend “Skies the Limit”? Yes, let’s argue. But we’ll hug it out, first.

I got a bucket of water for the torch and a fat suit to deflect the pitchfork. Seriously, I genuinely hate “Skies”—the only Christine song that makes me hurl.

Thats what makes all of use wonderful. We all like different things. I love the song mostly because of the crisp drums and Chris's playing. However, it does seem like a song that was written quickly. But seriously, how can we fail?

Next up: Homer's house and Oh Daddy
Tina, bring me the axe

Nothing is worse than The Second Time. Absolute dreck. Not only one of the worst Fleetwood Mac songs of their entire catalogue but an all-time terrible song.

My favourite from the album. Pure Stevie sadness, what is not to love!

I’m with jbrownsjr- I’d take Skies the Limit over Temporary One all day, anytime. Talk about a bad song! But different strokes for different folks.

I agree with Mitzo on this, too. While nowhere near my favorite, I don’t think it’s deck, especially compared to When I see You Again. Whassa matter baby, whassa matter baby, baby, babbeee! Babeee!

She stares at the stairs. There are so many things to stare at these days. <— is one of the worst pieces of lyrical garbage this band or any of its songwriters have ever put out!

I am a fan of WISYA too. Melancholy and weird and mysterious and incoherent. What's the problem?

If Homer and jbrownsjr say Temporary One sucks, then who are we to disagree?!? They are the Christine McVie authority here! Still, of all the singer/songwriters in FM, she is the most consistent one. There are some songs by Stevie and Lindsey that I hate, but I can’t say that about any of Christine’s songs, though. Well, except for Temporary One. And maybe One More Night.
