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 guitar riff has been copied so many time so but nevertheless as well

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

7 Little Lies

So catchy its crazy! Great chorus!

Best fleetwood mac song

Why isn't this top 5?

Tell me lies tell me sweet little lies
This is my favorite song of all time!

8 Gold Dust Woman

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!

9 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 Contenders

11 Songbird

Classic song should be in the top ten - mneilan

Favourite of all fleetwood - backflip

Grand Theft Auto V scraped this song

12 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

13 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

14 Sara

This is so?... Amazing beautifull song.

15 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

16 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!

17 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.

18 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

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

Beautiful song by a beautiful woman!

21 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!

Peter Green is the man

Yeah, they were good, but come on...

22 Hypnotized

Wonderfully rhythmic and haunting song by Bob Welch.

The forgotten era of Fleetwood Mac. A great song.

Haunting song, if u can't get your groove on with this song.. I'm sorry for u.

23 As Long as You Follow

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

24 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

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

26 Keep on Going
27 The Purple Dancer
28 World Turning

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

29 Heroes are Hard to Find
30 Blue Letter
31 The Green Manalishi

32? should be top 5

32 Albatross

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

33 Night Watch
34 I'm So Afraid

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

How is this not in the top 10

Amazing song live!

Epic... especially the live versions.

35 Black Magic Woman

Fantastic!

36 Hold Me

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!

Thought this would be higher... so beautiful

HOW IS THIS 32?! I LOVE THIS SONG

37 Family Man
38 Angel

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

39 Oh Daddy

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

40 Storm

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

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? "

One of Stevie Nicks's finest.

41 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

42 Beautiful Child
43 For Your Love
44 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

45 Oh Diane

Cute song, I like to listen it

46 Walk a Thin Line
47 Over My Head

This should be higher.

48 What Makes You Think You're the One

A great, largely underrated cut from the *Rumours* follow up *Tusk*.

49 Love Shines

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

Same

50 Sentimental Lady

The most beautiful and luscious song I ever heard!
