The Top Ten

1 The Chain The Chain

Somewhat surprised to see this on top, but absolutely correct! Also love Landslide, Rhiannon, and Gold Dust Woman.

Just, incredible

Too good man. To write a piece of art like this that too in '77! Just breathtakingly beautiful

The Chain. How to describe this great song? It's just amazing. The harmonies that Fleetwood Mac achieves in this song are really great.

2 Go Your Own Way Go Your Own Way

This song shows how great Lindsey Buckingham is a singer, songwriter and guitarist. His vocals in particular are just so raw and full of emotion I would argue it's the best vocals on a fleetwood mac song along with the chain and seven wonders.

This song should be in Grand Theft Auto VI alongside The Chain and the scrapped Songbird. - Gehenna

Just like Queens "Don't Stop Me Now" this song fills me with the unshakeable feeling that I can go whichever way I want in life and no one can stop me.

An absolutely beautiful song by Fleetwood Mac. I cannot listen to this song without getting tears in my eyes.

Beautiful song, through and through. Great when you're happy, powerful when you're sad, all around genius piece of art. Timeless stuff.

Aside from how this song is the only one that reached number one hit in the U.S. , this song is amazing. The cords are simply breathtaking, and the lyrics are deep and heartfelt. Dreams is a lovely song, and my personal favorite.

The vocals and instrumental within this song makes it their best song. I remember the rumours album used to play on loop in our car when I was young. Good times with good songs

A really breathtaking song, my family plays it every summer and it brings back a lot of great memories. Love it!

4 Landslide

Powerfully emotional. Utterly beautiful. - Britgirl

Amazing song. - PhoenixAura81

No offense to the songs ranked above Landslide because they're great songs, particularly the Chain, but this will always be Mac's masterpiece to me. I think it's borne out in the number of artists who have done their versions of Landslide, no other Fleetwood Mac song has been redone like this one. When you see clips of Stevie and Lindsey playing this song, you can see the special meaning behind it. I've played this song on guitar hundreds of times, unlike most songs it never gets old.

This is the song that get me hooked on fleetwood mac. So much undisclosed passion that lay hidden in this song. When I listen to this song an array of memories and emotions come back to me, and the next time I listen to it I get a totally different experience. Number 1 in my opinion no doubt.

5 Rhiannon

This is the best song ever. I love watching them play their songs, but this their best. Stevie Nicks is a great singer, & this is like her signature song. I hope she keeps going like George Burns. I hope she keeps going until the day that she dies.

Such a beautiful song. It paints such a vivid image for me of a woman who's just ethereal. Stevie is a blessing.

One of my favorites. I was named after this song.

ALL the songs sung by Christine McVie are the best Fleetwood Mac songs.

Unique song. My favourite Fleetwood Mac song. Bring back nice memories.

Good song, but I swear Stevie sounds like she's singing in the bathroom. Am I the only one? - truckturner

So catchy its crazy! Great chorus!

No one can deny that this song makes you FEEL something so deep. It's not just a "good song" like the rest, it's a piece of life sliced right into a completely underrated album.

What? This needs to move UP

Definitely one of the best song ever. epic keyboard solo

12 Gold Dust Woman

Best in my opinion. Stevie Nicks voice has no rivals.

This is definitely top ten. Stevie Nicks is awesome, awesome, and more awesome. This is number three for me, behind Landslide and The Chain.

Amazing song, so dark and blunt, great beat, I love it. One of their best.

People, put your kingdoms up for sale and vote this up too!

13 Tusk

Amazing

OH MY GOD ITS BRILLIANT

Another Fleetwood Mac song that sounds like no other. Fleetwood Mac definitely doesn't get enough credit for how innovative they are.

15 You Make Loving Fun

A great, sweet, happy love song. - truckturner

This is their feel-good song! The most optimistic and sweet declaration of love ever. It's impossible to listen to this song and not feel good.

That groovy bassline with the steady drumbeat and sweet guitar licks on top, it's perfect

16 Never Going Back Again

One of my favorite songs ever. It amazes me how Lindsay Buckingham can keep all the fingerpicking so clean. Just beautiful guitar.

This song is so upbeat and quirky. It's my favorite song to listen to when I'm having a bad day.

Best acoustic guitar song ever

Such a great guitar sound to it. I love it a lot and should be up higher I think.

17 I Don't Want to Know
18 Hypnotized

Doesn't get better

THE BEST

The forgotten era of Fleetwood Mac. A great song.

Wonderfully rhythmic and haunting song by Bob Welch.

19 Say You Love Me

Great song I love it

I can't believe this song is this down,this deserves to be all the way to the top

20 Big Love

Great song love the mini two or three guitar solos this song should be number 8 not number 11 please vote this song up higher

Deserves to be much higher. I love the way Lindsey rocks out when he does this song. He deserves as much credit for the success of this band as Stevie. Both are great! Keep on rocking'.

This song has such a hyped melody it's amazing. You have to listen to it quite a bit before you love it. It's definitely an acquired taste

Number 5 not number 11!

PEOPLE

21 Second Hand News

Say WHAT? Second Hand News isn't in the top ten?! This is one of the greatest songs they ever recorded! It's a distinct blend of rock, pop, country, and traditional celtic jigs. It even has a "Jive Talking" Bee Gee's beat under it all - and, due to Buckingham's brilliant composition - it works. I saw the song dissected by Buckingham on "The Making of Rumours" dvd, and it was astounding. Also features a great lead vocal by Buckingham and beautiful Buckingham/Nicks harmonizing. Fun song that never fails to get the audience up and moving when played live.

28? Come on man

22 Black Magic Woman

Fantastic!

23 Oh Well

Of course best song from Fleetwood Mac! Better than The Chain, Go Your Own Way, Don't Stop

Number 24...? Really? By far the greatest thing ever recorded by the Mac.

Come on guys the best Fleetwood Mac is Green's Fleetwood Mac!

This song is a MASTERPIECE! It's hard to see how Oh Well didn't play a significant role model to Led Zeppelin's Black Dog.

Best female vocal performance. Cannot be replicated, not even by Stevie Nicks herself. A truly magical recording. It's a shame it was only a B-side.

I will follow you down 'til the sound of my voice will haunt you. It doesn't really get more stirring than that.

This song should be #1! So beautiful!

Masterpiece love you stevie

This might be the most under looked track of any major band of the time. Fantastic track, and I don't even like the the tusk album

TRACK A GHOST THROUGH THE FOG, BABY
- The best song on Tusk

28 Heroes are Hard to Find
29 Night Watch
30 Monday Morning

I don't understand how this song can sit down so low on 14. This song is vintage Fleetwood Mac. Love it!

One of my favorites of Lindsey's songs. Should at least in top 5.

31 Albatross

I can never get tired of this song. Peter Green, you understated legend.

This is early Fleetwood Mac and inspiration for Sun King by The Beatles. ' love this song, so relaxing. - Stalin

Possibly the most beautiful, haunting and relaxing instrumental I've ever heard. The sense of freedom it gives is utterly breathtaking. - Britgirl

32 I'm So Afraid

Amazing song live!

This is my favorite Fleetwood Mac song. Lindsey rocks this guitar solo through the roof. - wubbalubbadubdub

How is this not in the top 10

Epic... especially the live versions.

33 Hold Me

You want a percentage, but I’m the fool paying the dues. I clearly remember the video in the desert. Not my favorite song, but near their top 10. In the 30s is ridiculous.

Thought this would be higher... so beautiful

This is my all time favorite. I hear it and it gets stuck in my head (soul) for days. Such a feel good song.

My all time favorite!

1 July 2019: As so many of Fleetwood Mac songs, this one is another piece of great music!
––Richard S. Otto

Beautiful song by a beautiful woman!

35 Oh Daddy

Beautiful, underrated song, though understandably has a hard time competing with every other masterpiece of a song on Rumours.

36 Family Man

One of my favorite Lindsey Buckingham compositions. Tango in the Night is such a great album. - kraeftas

37 Beautiful Child

Maybe the most beautiful Stevie Nicks' song

38 Think About Me
39 As Long as You Follow

It's my favorite song of Christine. Very beautiful.

40 Storm

The second Fleetwood Mac song I heard. I heard it on the Spotify playlist "Holding on to Forever", the playlist where I first listened to Work Drugs (I made a list about them). I really like this song, but I only heard it once. - PhoenixAura81

So underrated! Better than Landslide. "Never have I been a blue calm sea, I have always been a storm." That is Fleetwood Mac in a nutshell. So beautiful. "did I ever really care that much? is there anything left to say? "

Great song, very underrated compared to others, but it's my favourite of theirs.

One of Stevie Nicks's finest.

41 For Your Love
42 The Green Manalishi

SHOULD BE TOP THREE! Compare Fleetwood with Genesis. Only Pop later on.

32? should be top 5

43 Walk a Thin Line
44 Crystal

Deserves to be higher, this is one of my favorite Fleetwood Mac songs!

Amazing song should be in top 10

This is a beautiful song!

Should be much higher

45 Oh Diane

Cute song, I like to listen it

46 Over My Head

This should be higher.

47 World Turning

Great tune and harmonies galore amongst the three upfront. John and Mick doing their thing - "World Turning! "

48 Blue Letter
49 Love Shines

My personal favorite Christine McVie song. It is from 25 Years: The Chain and it so underrated!
