Top Ten Best Fleetwood Mac Songs

The Top Ten

1 The Chain

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

Someone made a comment this was the only song all band members contributed to on Rumours. Not so. It's the only song that credits all five members for writing. All members of the band contribute to almost all of the tracks on Rumours doing their thing.

This song is just so unique, there isn't another song like it. The bass part is easily within the top five bass lines of all time, to me rivaled only by Pink Floyd's money and the Beatles' come together.

The Chain is my favourite fleetwood mac song. It also holds up the best. Dreams is their best song though everyone should listen to it

2 Go Your Own Way

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.

No offense, but this is the only Fleetwood Mac song I love. The rest I like or dislike. This stands apart from the rest.

Uplifting

3 Dreams

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!

Enchantingly good

4 Landslide

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.

While Go Your Own way ramps out the power and passion. Landslide is a poignant bittersweet hymn of lyrical beauty, a poem to lost love and an acceptance of the things passing. In its trembling guitar riffs and emotive vocals it speaks to the little fears and loss in all of us.

First heard this song as the smashing pumpkins version. The original is so much better! - Onafriday

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.

6 Don't Stop

My favourite song ever

This song is so catchy! - FreakOnALeash

Best catchy tune ever

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.

10 Gypsy

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

A crime not to include in the top 5. Undeniable hit

Instantly catchy

The Newcomers

? Songbird

Classic song should be in the top ten - mneilan

Favourite of all fleetwood - backflip

The Contenders

11 You Make Loving Fun

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

12 Tusk

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

I get why people wouldn't choose this song. It's different than nearly all others, but it is brilliant. Proof? The only rock song that I know of that features a marching band - - and it's cool! With all of its disparate elements, it (unlike many punk songs) comes together as a followable whole. Weird and brilliant!

Love it, along with many others. An amazing Fun song from the genius of Lindsay Buckingham! - Billyv

This song has such a mysterious sound to it, and it is so beautifully put together

This is so?... Amazing beautifull song.

14 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.

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

Best acoustic guitar song ever

15 Everywhere

A happy love song! I don't hear much of my times. Much more contemporary but this is one of those rare underrated songs from Fleet that makes me all preppy.

This song belongs on the top ten. Its got a certain charm that makes it wonderful

Everywhere is the song that got stuck in my head and made me love this band

I love this song!

16 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.

17 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

There's just so many great songs. It would be higher on my list as well - Ned964

18 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!

19 I Don't Want to Know
20 Sisters of the Moon

Beautiful song by a beautiful woman!

21 As Long as You Follow

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

22 Hypnotized

Wonderfully rhythmic and haunting song by Bob Welch.

The forgotten era of Fleetwood Mac. A great song.

23 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.

24 Oh Well

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.

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

25 Silver Springs

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!

This should be top 5
