Top 10 Fleetwood Mac Songs Sung By Lindsey Buckingham looks at the music of the band Fleetwood Mac and the contributions made by Lindsey Buckingham. As a group, Fleetwood Mac has rocked the audience since 1967. Among the many top hit songs from this iconic band, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks each have their own contribution as lead singers. With the focus on Lindsey Buckingham, which is the all-time favorite as sung by him?

In the Beginning

When Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, and Jeremy Spencer formed the group out of London, England, their musical niche was in blues. They, along with John McVie, Danny Kirwan, and Christine Perfect (before becoming Christine McVie), each made their contribution before vocal dynamos Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks were recruited. Prior to Buckingham and Nicks, Fleetwood Mac already made a name for itself on the music scene, especially on the UK Singles Chart. Like many bands that start out, lineup changes came about and this is where Buckingham and Nicks would make their mark.

Let’s Get Folksy

In 1974, Fleetwood was on the hunt for a suitable replacement for the departed Bob Welch, Bob Weston, and Dave Walker. He learned about the American folk-rock duo of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks while he was in Los Angeles, California. As soon as Buckingham and Nicks joined the lineup, Fleetwood Mac ventured into a musical direction that featured pop rock. The 1975 album, Fleetwood Mac, became a number-one seller. It was followed by the 1977 success of Rumours, which earned a Grammy Award for Album of the Year the next year. To this day, Rumours remains one of the best-selling albums of all time as it sold over forty million copies.

The Splits

Until 1987, Fleetwood Mac enjoyed the fruits of its success as one cohesive unit. Between grueling recording and touring schedules, the personal lives of the band’s lineup underwent a series of changes that would ultimately break the group up. It started in 1976 when John McVie and Christine Perfect’s marriage came to an end. At the same time, the romance between Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks also ended. At the time, Nicks was involved with Mick Fleetwood. It was a relationship that caused his own marriage to his wife, Jenny, to divorce. It was also a time when the abuse of drugs and alcohol took center stage. Adding this to the fuel of so many fires already burning among the ranks, it was only a matter of time before everyone would go their own way.

Buckingham’s Mark

In the meantime, Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham performed like a vocal machine with one hit song after another. To his credit, ‘Go Your Own Way,” “Second Hand News,” and “Tusk” were among the few that became major fan favorites that graced the radio waves. When Tusk was released as an album in 1979, this was Buckingham’s influence to have Fleetwood Mac experiment with new sounds musically. This was a step in the direction to ensure it didn’t sound so much like Rumours. As far as Mick Fleetwood was concerned, this album was exactly that and it became his personal favorite as a recording artist.

Although Tusk sold four million copies worldwide, it didn’t share the same level of mainstream presence as Rumours did. This was blamed on the radio’s decision to play the album out in its entirety before it was released. This move allowed listeners to record it while it was playing. Because of this, fans fortunate enough to record the music didn’t have to go to the store to buy it.

Solo Acts

AfterFleetwood Mac recorded and released Mirage in 1982, this came after the solo albums that were released by Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, and Stevie Nicks. Despite the success, the taste of solo careers witnessed Buckingham, Nicks, and Christine McVie each launched solo work again. For Mick Fleetwood, he wanted the group to do another album together. This brought forth the fourteenth studio album, Tango in the Night. It was released in 1987 as one of the most successful albums in the band’s career.

This was the final album that would feature Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks as members of Fleetwood Mac before the breakup. At this point, neither vocalist was able to get along with the other. Between the two, Buckingham was the first to leave.

Reunions and Departures

Shortly after Fleetwood Mac was officially disbanded in 1995, Mack Fleetwood began to work with Lindsey Buckingham. Also joining Lindsey Buckingham over time was John McVie, then Christine McVie. Stevie Nicks also turned to him for a soundtrack production. By 1996, this group worked together again as a band.

It was a reunion that had the band members stay together for the most part until Buckingham filed a lawsuit against Fleetwood Mac in 2018. This came on the heels of disagreements that gave him cause to break ties with the band.

The departure of Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac resulted in a new lineup that included Mike Campbell and Neil Finn as his replacement. Since then, the roster of this iconic group has met with the deaths of its founding member, Peter Green in 2020, as well as Christie McVie’s death in 2022.

Lindsey Buckingham’s Legacy

Whether as a member of Fleetwood Mac or as a solo artist, Lindsey Buckingham’s accomplishments as a recording artist are nothing short of spectacular. While with the group, there were sixteen studio albums released, along with nine live albums, twenty-three compilation albums, an EP, and sixty-two singles.

Top 10 Fleetwood Mac Songs Sung by Lindsey Buckingham

#10 – Not That Funny

As a song, “Not That Funny” was a jab against the punk style that was taking over as a musical and fashion statement that dominated the 1970s. Released as a single in 1980 from the album, Tusk, Lindsey Buckingham delivered the song as Fleetwood Mac’s lead vocalist. He did this while holding a push-up position in a setting that was designed like a bathroom. As a single, it was a limited release in Germany, the Netherlands, and the U.K. Despite receiving positive reviews from the critics, it failed to make a chart impression.

#9 – I’m So Afraid

Written and sung by Lindsey Buckingham, “I’m So Afraid” was a song that was recorded on Fleetwood Mac, the group’s tenth studio album which was released in 1975. It was a song he wrote before he and Stevie Nicks joined Mick Fleetwood’s band in 1974. This hard-rocking number wound up becoming a live performance favorite as Lindsey Buckingham used it as a means to show off his guitar talent. For Lindsey Buckingham, the inspiration for the song came from Benjamin Britten’s “A Ceremony of Carols.”

The mix of church-style music and orchestra dictated “I’m So Afraid” as a recording that meshed folk and rock together as an edgy song. This also became one of Buckingham’s signature tunes as a solo artist when he wasn’t performing as a member of Fleetwood Mac.

#8 – Oh Diane

Released in 1982 from Mirage, “Oh Diane” was a single that was written and sung by Lindsey Buckingham. On the UK Singles Chart, it became a number nine hit while on the Irish Singles Chart it peaked as high as number eight. On the US Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart, it peaked as high as number thirty-five. It also made an impression on Germany’s chart at number forty-six. The appeal of “Oh Diane” was the 1950s style this song took on. Inspired by Paul Anka’s “Diana,” Lindsey Buckingham not only performed as the song’s lead vocalist but as the guitarist and keyboardist.

#7 – Monday Morning

“Monday Morning” was a song sung by Lindsey Buckingham as one of the lead vocalists for Fleetwood Mac. It came from the group’s self-titled album, which was released in 1975. At the time, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks were still a couple. In the song, Lindsey Buckingham expressed his love for a girl who wasn’t willing to fully commit herself to him. Ironically, by 1976, Lindsey Buckingham and Nicks ended their romance but still managed to work together as bandmates.

Before hooking up with Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham and Nicks already wrote this song and intended to perform it as a duo. “Monday Morning” became one of three previously written songs the two would bring to the group as it transitioned from its bluesy style to pop-rock.

#6 – Blue Letter

“Blue Letter” was a song written by the brother songwriting team, Michael and Richard Curtis. It was recorded and released by Fleetwood Mac for their self-titled album in 1975. Lindsey Buckingham was the lead vocalist who performed it as a tune that owed part of its inspiration to Peter Green’s “World Turning.” Green was one of the founding members of Fleetwood Mac before he made his departure.

The song was written by the Curtis brothers after meeting Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. This occurred before the couple joined Mick Fleetwood and his band. “Blue Letter” was a song that seemed to describe the rocky relationship that existed between Buckingham and Nicks while they were still a couple.

#5 – The Chain

Released in 1977 from the album Rumours, “The Chain” was a song that was performed by Lindsey Buckingham as Fleetwood Mac’s lead vocalist. The popularity of this song became a staple whenever the group performed in concert. It’s also been used as the theme music for the U.K.’s BBC channel featuring Formula One. On the US Billboard Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart, the live version of this song peaked at number seven in 1997, twenty years after its studio recording. As a single, it became three-time platinum with the British Phonographic Industry. In Denmark, it was certified gold.

Both Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks technically performed “The Chain” as lead vocalists. The song itself was first written by Stevie Nicks and it was about Lindsey Buckingham as the two realized their relationship had reached the breaking point. By the time the development of “The Chain” was over, the entire roster of Fleetwood Mac each had their own contribution to the song before it was recorded as one of the many songs that contributed to the multi-platinum success Rumours achieved upon its release. The guitar featured in the end came from Buckingham, which added a bit more drama to a song that was once upon a time called “Butter Cookie” by Christine McVie.

#4 – Second Hand News

From the album, Rumours, “Second Hand News” was a somewhat dark song that was sung by Lindsey Buckingham. Originally, this was meant to be an acoustic number before Lindsey Buckingham was inspired by the Bee Gees’ “Jive Talkin’.” He wound up rearranging the music in order to develop a more rhythmic feel that featured hints of Celtic culture in it. At the time of the song’s development, there were split-ups going on among the band members of Fleetwood Mac. The relationship Buckingham had with Stevie Nicks deteriorated while John and Christine McVie were divorcing from each other.

The emotional rollercoaster ride members of Fleetwood Mac experienced at the time wasn’t easy to deal with as each had to set their personal feelings aside in order to complete Rumours as a recording. From there, it was the busy concert tour that followed. As tense as the situation was, this worked in the group’s favor as Rumours became the most successful album in their recording career.

#3 – Tusk

As a single, “Tusk” was a 1979 release from the double album featuring the same name. On the US Billboard Hot 100, it became a number eight hit. On the UK Singles Chart, it climbed as high as number six. It was also certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry, as well as gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association. The song was also a top ten hit among the nations of Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, and New Zealand.

Much like “Go Your Own Way,” “Tusk” was a song that made good use of the drumming beats used to orchestrate its tribal-style layout. Both Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood took it upon themselves to experiment with different sounds by using the most unusual instruments they could find. Those include applying a spatula to a lamb chop, as well as hitting a tissue box.

#2 – Big Love

Released in 1987 from the album Tango in the Night, “Big Love” was a single that featured Lindsey Buckingham taking the lead as Fleetwood Mac’s vocalist. On the US Billboard Hot 100, it became a number five hit and it peaked as high as number two on the US Billboard Mainstream Rock chart. Globally, it was at least a top twenty hit in the nations of Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, South Africa, Sweden, and the U.K. The inspirational appeal behind “Big Love” became a standard in dance music. On the US Billboard Dance Club Songs chart, it peaked as high as number seven.

As lead vocalist and guitarist, Lindsey Buckingham’s approach to “Big Love” was a lustful style tempo that featured grunting sounds that became increasingly aggressive towards the end. of the song. Not only was this a big hit for Fleetwood Mac but was one of Buckingham’s signature tunes as a solo artist. Some of the fans assumed when hearing the female-style grunts in the song came from Stevie Nicks but this wasn’t the case. Lindsey Buckingham did it all. Although he and Stevie Nicks agreed to work together for Tango in the Night after Christine McVie recruited them for another Fleetwood Mac studio album, it wasn’t an easy task for these two.

#1 – Go Your Own Way

Sung by Lindsey Buckingham, “Go Your Own Way” was the first single released by Fleetwood Mac from the 1977 album, Rumours. It became the group’s first top-ten hit in the U.S. and remains ranked as one of the greatest songs of all time. The recording process of this single took place in three different studios. The song was about Buckingham’s breakup with Stevie Nicks. When Lindsey Buckingham was approached to join Fleetwood Mac, he and Nicks were a strong couple. For Lindsey Buckingham, he wouldn’t join the band without her. That was in 1974. In 1976, things changed and the two were no longer involved with each other at a romantic level.

The inspiration behind “Go Your Own Way” came from “Street Fighting Man,” a single The Rolling Stones released in 1968 from their album, Beggars Banquet. According to Mick Fleetwood, the songwriting took place in a house he believed was haunted. As for the development of the song itself, it was a four-month process that used the drumming beats from “Street Fighting Man” as a source while experimenting with acoustic and electric guitars. After the mixing process, “Go Your Own Way,” as a final product, was recorded and released as a song that became one of the greatest hits of all time.

In Belgium and the Netherlands, “Go Your Own Way” topped their respective music charts. It was a number ten hit on the US Billboard Hot 100, as well as on the US Cash Box Top 100. In Canada, it peaked as high as number eleven. Among the nations of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and the UK, it was at least a top forty hit. In 2020, “Go Your Own Way” made a chart appearance again, this time on the US Billboard Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart at number nineteen. With the British Phonographic Industry, this single sold enough copies to become certified platinum three times.

Rob De Luca of Spread Eagle, Sebastian Bach & UFO: 10 Albums That Changed My Life From humble East Coast origins to grandest stages worldwide, veteran bassist Rob De Luca has seen and done it all. De Luca first hit the local Boston rock and metal scene in the late 80s after meeting guitarist Paul DiBartolo, bonding over Van Halen before forming Bang. Regional success came quickly, but eventually, the members of Bang went their separate ways, with De Luca and drummer Tommi Gallo heading to NYC and hooking up with Ray West and, later, DiBartolo to form Spread Eagle. By 1990, Spread Eagle was on the fast track, with a contract through MCA Records and a self-titled debut album poised to crush skulls. But poor timing and MCA's sad indifference left Spead Eagle out in the cold despite being a hard-boiled answer to Guns N' Roses's West Coast sleaze. Spread Eagle's first chapter came to an end in '95. As for Rob De Luca, his nimble fingers and gift for melody and songwriting kept him moving forward. Soon, he found a gig with former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach and the legendary outfit UFO. And in 2010, after coupling up with Ray West and his cousin Rik De Luca, Spread Eagle retook flight. During a break from Spread Eagle's increasingly busy touring schedule, Rob De Luca dialed in with to run through the ten albums that changed his life. But only after adding, "I made a playlist of these songs, including some I've written or co-written. Do you hear any of these albums' influence on me?" Listen here: 10) Gentlemen by Afghan Whigs (1993) Here's an entry that was so important to me. This may be the darkest break-up album of all time. Greg Dulli has been in many projects, but I feel Gentlemen is his zenith. Somewhat undefinable at times but always profound and honest. Listen to "Gentlemen," "Fountain and Fairfax," and "What Jail Is Like." 9) In on the Kill Taker by Fugazi (1993) By this time, I had been sucked in and spit out by the major-label record industry. Glam came and went; grunge was history, too. I was searching for new sounds. When I heard Fugazi's twin guitar approach, I knew this was what was missing. Fugazi may be considered a less polished sound than the albums above; however, once you "get it," it hits you like a ton of bricks, and there's no going back. From the moment I heard Fugazi, I went to every NYC show after. It's easily some of the best concerts of my life, and possibly my favorite bassist in Joe Lally. And their DIY ethics refused to charge us more than $5 a show! In on the Kill Taker is a powerful album demonstrated in songs such as "Smallpox Champion," "Great Cop," and "Public Witness Program." 8) Appetite for Destruction by Guns N' Roses (1987) I discovered many of these albums (sometimes long) after they were released. However, I was at the right place at the right time for this one. Steve Ostromogilsky had a Berklee College of Music lunch card and used to sneak out sandwiches for me. One day, he invited me to hang out at his place and listen to music. As we got off the train, he put Sony Walkman headphones on my ears and said, "Hey, check out this brand-new group." A song like "It's So Easy" was so different from the popular Sunset Strip sound at that time. Me and about 499 other informed rockers were lucky enough to see them on their first East Coast tour at the sold-out Paradise on Commonwealth Avenue, Boston (the same street Aerosmith started on). I saw Gn'R every tour after until I took a break when Buckethead joined. Gn'R is the band I've been lucky enough to see the most times live, almost 100! Everyone on this album is just stellar. Axl [Rose] had the tones, power, melodic sensibilities, and foresight to do what no other singer did then. Slash's playing was beyond memorable. Duff [McKagan] is one of the most underrated bassists in rock history, and learning his Appetite basslines is a masterclass. Steven [Adler] had the natural swing, and Izzy [Stradlin] was the secret weapon songwriter. Everything that's been heralded about this gem is deserved and true. Check out "It's So Easy," "Out Ta Get Me," and "Mr. Brownstone.' 7) Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd (1975) Another contender for my favorite album and band of all time. Using The Beatles machine (same recording studio, engineer, record label), Pink Floyd made what I feel is their strongest, most cohesive album (my second favorite of theirs would be Animals). This list mainly consists of bands with an instantly recognizable sound. Floyd is certainly no exception to that! This album included a solid handful of undeniable rock radio classics, bookended by two halves of the mind-blowing song "Shine on You Crazy Diamond.' That song was written about former band member and founder Syd Barrett. It would be hard to live in a world without this album. Check out "Welcome to The Machine," "Shine on You Crazy Diamond (parts 6-9),' or even better yet, listen to the whole thing in one sitting! 6) Decade by Neil Young (1977) About this time, I started playing guitar. As a beginner, it was comfortable jamming to this album because the chord changes were simple—a great "first ten years" retrospective of Neil's stunning, unique songwriting. Neil is a treasure who always writes from the heart and stands up for what's right. Check out "Southern Man," "A Man Needs a Maid," "Down by The River," and "After the Goldrush." 5) Highway to Hell by AC/DC (1979) When I heard this album, I was firmly "me." My life would be 100% focused on hard rock music forever. AC/DC are like air; they're ubiquitous. Everyone knows them and their incredible songs. However, as a young teen in Wilmington, Delaware, I only had WMMR 93.3 FM Philadelphia and a few friends to inform me about the world of Rock outside my bedroom. AC/DC had not gone mainstream, and their albums were available primarily in the USA as imports. To put things more in perspective, I only knew two people in the world who had heard of AC/DC. A friend had an import that we played in Steve Buckley's basement, which sounded ripping. When Highway to Hell was released, WMMR started spinning the title track, and I immediately bought the album, listening to it every single day after school. Then WMMR announced AC/DC was coming to the Spectrum in Philly, supporting Ted Nugent! I liked Ted but loved AC/DC, so my good friend Mick Cummins and I bought tickets, and he drove us up to the Spectrum (where we saw most of our concerts). Bon Scott was in fine form, and the band went over great. Although the crowd knew Ted better, Angus [Young] wouldn't let anyone upstage him. I'll never forget it! Unfortunately, Bon would be gone in 6 months. Check out "Walk All Over You," "Touch Too Much," "Shot Down in Flames," and "If You Want Blood (You Got It)." 4) Toys in the Attic by Aerosmith (1975) By the time I heard this, I was now in my teens. I had a childhood friend up the street, Jim Linberg (we're still good buddies). His older sister had a great album collection, including Toys in The Attic. Once I heard that groove, my taste changed. I lost interest in rock music that didn't have some sort of "swing" feel to it. I think Rocks is a slightly better Aerosmith album (and possibly my favorite album of all time), but both are perfect or very close. Check out "Uncle Salty," "Adam's Apple," "No More No More," "Round and Round," and "You See Me Crying." 3) Alive! by Kiss (1975) When I was still a little kid, I asked for Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke album for Christmas. The entire family came over for an enormous feast, and I dropped the needle. When my mother heard the content, she turned off the album and said I had to exchange it. My mom was cool, but I was young and knew much more about life than she suspected. Anyway, the next day, she drove me back to the store. In the music section, promoted on an "endcap" was a Kiss Alive! display. I had never heard of Kiss, but that cover picture told me I had to have it! My first foray into hard rock. Check out “Strutter.” I went through my Kiss phase very quickly, I believe in a matter of months because I discovered the previous entry, Aerosmith's Toys in the Attic. 2) Honky Chateau by Elton John (1972) When I was a wee lad, my parents bought a used Volkswagen camper van from my uncle Ozzie. My favorite Elton John album is Yellow Brick Road, but Honky Chateau is great and easily one of his best. It sent me down a lifelong rabbit hole of loving everything about the 1970s partnership between Elton and lyricist Bernie Taupin. The simple beauty of voice, the master songwriting, the perfect backing band, the clear, unobtrusive recordings, and always Bernie's incredible lyrics. The day this album was released, Elton became an unstoppable force that conquered the music industry. Check out "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters" and "Rocket Man." 1) Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles (1967) Another tape that was included in the VW Camper. The van had a bunch of music tapes, and one was Sgt Pepper. I was too young to understand the sophistication of the music, but that was one of the many skills of The Beatles. They attracted listeners at every level, even little kids. I still feel that immediate connection to Sgt Pepper; now, I hear so much more. It's an album that changed the world and the world of music. Check out "Lucy in The Sky with Diamonds," "A Day In The Life," and "Fixing a Hole."
