I have never understood why so many BN shippers hate this song. I've read comments like they think the lyrics are offensive. Forgive me, but that is simply bad criticism. Ever hear of irony? Need a sense of humor? It's a brilliant little take on the working-girl fantasy. And it WORKS.

I've seen some people dismiss the song as "light funk." Umm, what? It's pop blues for sure, but it's the right combination of pop and blues. No one ever told The Spinners "I'll Be Around" wasn't soulful enough. No one ever blamed Dusty Springfield for strapping on some R&B when she sang "Son of a Preacher Man."

"Sugar Daddy" is up, it's fun, and it's smart. I wish Christine had written more songs like it. And I wish more of her songs had that B3 so prominently in them.

I was going to pick "No Road" but there were simply too many songs to choose from. "Prove Your Love" is a great song engineered badly. It sounds muddy. Christine's lovely vocal is supressed in the mix. My favorite part of "Just Crazy Love" is Weston's frenetic electric fills between Christine's lines in the verse. A nice touch for a song with "crazy" in the title.

Yeah, sadly true, Tony. When she and John sat down with Jim Ladd for Mirage to do an interview, she told Jim that she would like to rerecord Prove with the then-current production team. That comment is really what made me go listen to it, and I became a fan of the possible!

I totally agree! Christine was hilarious with that clever British humor and I also wish it had been showcased in more songs. And that B3 was just *chefís kiss*

Heart of Stone and Prove Your Love were my #3 and #4. I have spent days at a time listening to those songs on repeat and all the while finding new things about them to fall in love with.

It's made every single greatest hits I've ever made. I never tire of it.

Just Crazy Love and Prove Your Love are both excellent
Was jamming them all weekend.
Mystery To Me and Heroes Are Hard To Find are so freaking good

Interesting that she mentioned this while promoting MIRAGE since there are some similarities in the vocal attack for “Prove You’re Love” and “Only Over You.” On paper, I prefer the comparatively more complex chords in “Prove” but admire the confidence with which she sings “Only.”

2. 'As Long As You Follow'
3. 'Love In Store'
4. 'Say You Love Me'
5. 'Everywhere'
6. 'You Make Loving Fun'
7. 'Why'
8. 'Think About Me'
9. 'Over My Head'
10. 'Got A Hold On Me'

For now, this is how I feel.

I wanted to include at least one song from Christine's pre-FM era (Chicken Shack), from each of Christine's solo records, and from each "phase" of her career with FM, which I define as the Welch era, the Rumours era, and the BuckVie era (even though that was only one album long).

Since the Welch era is my personal favorite, I kept more songs from those five albums and kept just one token song from the most popular era, the Rumours era.

Get Like You Used To Be
No Road is the Right Road
Homeward Bound
Spare Me a Little
Just Crazy Love
Why
Isn't It Midnight
One In a Million
Friend
Game of Pretend
