First song I heard on the car's radio this morning was "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac. Last song I heard on the car radio at the end of the day: "Edge of Seventeen" by Stevie Nicks. It was a good day. :D

So now at home I'm listening to some of Stevie's lesser known songs. They make up the poll attached to this thread. And if you're saddened that her bigger songs are not mentioned, here's the "Obvious" list that got sorted out from the poll options:

Rhiannon
Landslide
Dreams
Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around (with Tom Petty)
Leather and Lace (with Don Henley)
Edge of Seventeen
Gypsy
Stand Back
Talk To Me

Two songs that did not make the poll as they were not singles or were not on any studio albums of Stevie's which you should listen to immediately are:

Kick-Ass cover of Tom Petty's "I Need To Know" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHjidmNYqVc)

Power ballad "Somebody Stand By Me" from Boys on the Side soundtrack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgmb1FYZhy8)

Really rare demo: "Cathouse Blues" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd6gwg3H6xs)

Demo version of "Storms" from the Tusk album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q94WuOmsmPE)

So are you marking Stevie Nicks day by running around in a top hat and platform boots? :P

I didn't vote, because I've always felt that Christine McVie could sing circles around Stevie's raspy voice... :yikes:

Peter, thanks so much for starting this thread! Regarding running around in a Top Hat and platform boots - I never did that but I did used to "wear boots all summer long." That, of course, is a phrase from Stevie's song, Nightbird. :)

I voted for everyone of the songs. Here's a few other songs I love of Stevie's. I decided to stop searching because this would be a really long post after I finished adding all of them.

Street Angel and Violet and Blue! How could I forget those two. It also reminded me of Blue Denim (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EZzv6HPoAQ)

Thanks numbers123 and my little pony. :)

Landslide. I performed this at the Dixie Chicken in College Station. With two backups. I think it was even before the Dixie Chicks. I love this song and can do at least two of all three way harmony. Though I love the lead.

I love Stevie Nicks too.

A good day is you doing all three harmonies to this song. It keeps you on your toes.

I didn't realize that you performed! I think that's great. :) I really love Landslide. I remember watching Stevie on Story Tellers from VH1 many years ago. She said she wrote the song for her Dad. :respec: :)

Gold Dust Woman (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l35pI8QQPtA) playing on the jukebox and french fries with gravy- my first dates with my husband of thirty years.

Stevie>>Christine (although my husband would disagree)

I know! If Stand Bank had been listed, I would have voted for it (I do like that song.) :)
