Fleetwood Mac lived hard and created some of the best music of the 1970s. Mick Fleetwood said the band had snorted seven miles of cocaine, but the band’s tunes continued to earn honors even the Beatles couldn’t reach. We hope that won’t happen for a while, but when Fleetwood dies, he wants a Christine McVie song from the Fleetwood Mac catalog to be played at his funeral.
Christine McVie wrote 8 of Fleetwood Mac’s singles
McVie stood out in a group full of expert songwriters. Stevie Nicks wrote the group’s only No. 1 single, which his bandmate found boring, but McVie wrote or co-wrote several of Fleetwood Mac’s singles:
“above my head”
“love in store”
“As long as you follow”
“You make love fun”
“Think of me”
“Little Lies” and “Tiens moi” reached #4 on the Billboard Singles Chart, and “You Make Loving Fun” peaked at number 9 in 1977. McVie also sang the Fleetwood Mac song which returned to the charts nearly 30 years later. It came out. She has written several notable Mac songs, but none are the McVie song that Mick Fleetwood wants to play at his funeral.
