Top Ten Best Fleetwood Mac Songs


The Top Ten

1 The Chain

Just, incredible

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

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

I love this song and I'm not even a Fleetwood Mac fan. - JCHOW

2 Go Your Own Way

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.

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

3 Dreams

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

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.

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

Awesome, this is a very good song from one of the most iconic albums of all time, it's very touching and it makes you think.

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.

6 Sara

Lovely song

Yep. Such an amazing song! - DaringXx

This is so?... Amazing beautifull song.

7 Don't Stop

Totally upbeat! Gets you groovin' and smilin'

This song is so catchy! - FreakOnALeash

My favourite song ever

Best catchy tune ever

8 Little Lies

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

It isn't Stevie singing in the bathroom haha! It's Christine McVie (keyboardist) singing this one :) Great song though! Everyone check out Eyes of the World and Oh Diane if you haven't already - two tracks that should be more appreciated.

Underrated on this list. Classic 80’s hit that you can listen to again and again!

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

Definitely one of the best song ever. epic keyboard solo

The Contenders

11 Seven Wonders

Perfect Fleetwood Mac song!

12 Everywhere

I go everywhere while listening this (no pun intented) - Userguy44

It's called Everywhere, but this song is everything and more. Beautiful. - truckturner

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.

I love this song!

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!

14 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!

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


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.

Wonderfully rhythmic and haunting song by Bob Welch.

19 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!


20 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

21 Black Magic Woman


22 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

23 Oh Well

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.

Peter Green is the man

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

24 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!

Masterpiece love you stevie

25 Keep on Going
26 The Purple Dancer
27 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

- The best song on Tusk

28 Heroes are Hard to Find
29 Night Watch
30 The Green Manalishi

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

32? should be top 5

31 Albatross

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 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.

33 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.

34 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!

35 Oh Daddy

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

36 Sisters of the Moon

Beautiful song by a beautiful woman!

37 As Long as You Follow

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

38 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.

39 Family Man

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

40 Beautiful Child

Maybe the most beautiful Stevie Nicks' song

41 Think About Me
42 For Your Love
43 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

44 Walk a Thin Line
45 Over My Head

This should be higher.

46 World Turning

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

47 Blue Letter
48 Oh Diane

Cute song, I like to listen it

49 Love in Store
50 What Makes You Think You're the One

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