(Stevie) Nick’s Free Tix

at

Last week, with two free tickets to see Mack Fleetwood on offer, I asked you to name your favourite song from the vast Mac canon.

You answered in your tens.

But there could be only one winner.

Third place:

Fleetwood Mac — Albatross

Slightly Bemused writes:

‘I have to admit my favourite song is Albatross, followed closely by Man of the World. A very good friend of mine used play Albatross on his guitar and lamented that he could not get it right (I could not tell the difference). Then he learned that they use 2 guitars and felt so much better. I worked in a lot of countries, and the same friend made me a mix tape to take with me, and one of the songs was Man of the World. That tape cheered me up in a lot of dark places.’

Runner-up:

Fleetwood Mac – Landslide

Millie Vanilly writes:

‘It’s a beautiful song with a lovely sentiment behind it and one of my daughter’s favourite songs. I sing it to her at bedtime and now I associate it with an extremely precious time of day.’

Winner:

Fleetwood Mac- The Chain

Odockatee writes:

‘It’s s a class tune, so far, so good. But then the pause just after the fade out of “keeps us together…….” and the bass line kicks in and its all Formula-1-head-shaking-running-on-the-spot-air-guitaring action.’

Thanks all.

    Winner alright!!
    I’m always worried I’ll get done for speeding when that bit kicks in on the car stereo!

      You deserve it – it is a great choice. I truly hope that you enjoy the evening. I got to see them at TribFest recently, and they were very good, easily the best of the first night.

      There can be no denying the original is the best, but this is a tribute band, emulating but not replacing. There is no question that Danny Kirwan was a genius, and Peter Green just kept getting better (until his appearance in the Simpsons, anyway).

      Oh Well used be the into for Dave Fanning’s late night show in the 80s and 90s, for those who may remember. In many ways that intro, which intrigued a younger me, got me interested in the older Fleetwood Mac songs, for which I thank him.

    It’s true; The Chain is never far from radio or TV, but you forget every time what an absolute banger it is.
