Default Rename the White Album with a title track

Tusk has Tusk, Tango in the Night has Tango in the Night, and Say You Will has Say You Will. (And yes, Mystery to Me has Mystery to Me etc.)

But the White Album, Rumours, and Mirage do not have title tracks.

Which tracks would you choose to rename these albums as?
Let's start with the White Album (Fleetwood Mac, 1975).


There is a limit of 10 options per poll but 11 tracks on the White Album.
I have arbitrarily decided to omit Blue Letter as it was not penned by the band members.


Note: This is not a "favorite song" poll.

I used a process of elimination.

Monday Morning is an irrelevant name for an album.
Warm Ways is a creepy name for an album.
Rhiannon is irrelevant and creepy.
Crystal is really confusing because, as a metaphor, itís a tenor without a vehicle.
Say You Love Me sounds a little demanding.
Landslide is prescient, given the bandís big success, but may be construed as a microaggression.
Iím So Afraid triggers all manner of neurotic sensations.
Over My Head is just barely interesting as an album title, but a band trying to rebrand itself may not want to announce that itís in over its head.

World Turning is the only possible choice. It also sounds nice in relation to the string of album titles: World Turning > Rumours > Tusk > Mirage > Tango in the Night

I would have followed the Rumours and Mirage model and named the album something distinct from any of the song titles and that encapsulated the groupís new ties to the West Coast: El Lay

Sugar Daddy would have been so confusing. Especially with 3 men and two women.

I went with Crystal, mainly because it goes well with Rumours, Tusk, and Mirage.

David is right. World Turning is the only choice.

World Turning implies forward movement while also alluding to the bandís initial iteration. If the album was named after a song, it would have best been that one.

Crystal sounds pretty but wouldnít stand a chance, as it was originally a BN song from two years prioróand because, as David pointed out, there is no obvious source for the metaphor.

Iím glad the album is self-titled. It fits the mythology of rebirth.

Crystal is far too hippy dippy. I'm sure that would have been stevie's choice. It would work now, but not then.

Say You Love Me

Its the lead track off the second side so its placement is perfect. It also is a premonition for Say You Will many years later

Iíve changed my mind. Haha, no, just kidding.

What if we had to find a title that wasnít a song title?

Orange Grove
Rockhopper
Easy Listening (or This Summerís Easy Listening Classic)
Goosebumps
Sound City or Bust
El Lay (or Century Boulevard)
English Rose and California Poppy (get it?)

How about Stephanie. Since Lindsey never cared for titles and Stevie suggested his song be named Stephanie. Its only fair that the lead singer of the band get to name the album.

Default Who's to say what's right?

Say You Love Me was my second choice.
The song was an instant hit and it can be read as the new lineup saying "Say you'll love us."
I had thought it would sound too similar to "Say You Will", but Macfan4life is right--there would be a nice symmetry in having the debut album called Say You'll Love Me and then the reboot album decades later called Say You Will (Give Me One More Chance).

It's interesting to see Crystal getting so many votes.
It is both snappy and evocative.
But will it remain ageless with the love that has finally found it?
Or will it be driven over the mountains into the sea?

I trusted my first, initial feeling and voted for World Turning.
The name calls back to earlier FM but also connotes "revolution". The song itself is a calling card to the new sound of bluegrass influences and the Buckingham McVie writing/singing dynamic.
