Papas Fritas - People Say

da croupier, Wednesday, 9 October 2013 16:30 (six years ago) link

In some way, Taylor Swift's Red reminds me of Go Your Own Way.

Bat for Lashes - Daniel

Deafening silence (DL), Wednesday, 9 October 2013 16:35 (six years ago) link


Katy Perry - The One That Got Away

mostly for the beat, but there is also this:


da croupier, Wednesday, 9 October 2013 16:35 (six years ago) link

Dunno about the Katy one. Just sounds like stock Katy Perry imo.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 9 October 2013 16:37 (six years ago) link

did you miss the beat AND the link?

da croupier, Wednesday, 9 October 2013 16:39 (six years ago) link

El Perro Del Mar - Change of Heart

Number None, Wednesday, 9 October 2013 16:51 (six years ago) link

Daft Punk - "Game Of Love" sounds like a Christine ballad to me.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 9 October 2013 17:05 (six years ago) link

always heard a LOT of Buckingham in the way they sing / harmonize

the tune was space, Wednesday, 9 October 2013 17:42 (six years ago) link


southern cumlord (electricsound), Thursday, 10 October 2013 00:34 (six years ago) link

a good third of the songs here could be derived from 'Everywhere' alone.

I figure that the point of the Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve remix of that Midlake song was to emphasise all of the Mac-ness:


opie dead eyed piece of shit (Merdeyeux), Thursday, 10 October 2013 00:54 (six years ago) link

One of many by this band:


xhuxk, Thursday, 10 October 2013 01:04 (six years ago) link

this one is a pretty straight up lindsey homage, i think

tylerw, Thursday, 10 October 2013 22:14 (six years ago) link

Absolutely so!

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 10 October 2013 22:16 (six years ago) link

There are better examples from this album, but:


Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 10 October 2013 22:19 (six years ago) link

The singer for the band Borrowed Beams of Light channels Lindsey Buckingham (sonically/voice-wise) pretty hard here. Catchy song too:


grandavis, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 14:15 (six years ago) link

These guys are pretty explicit about it. Very fond of their 2nd album Return of the Century:


dlp9001, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 14:25 (six years ago) link


tori amos - a sorta fairytale (whole scarlet's walk album really)

lex pretend, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 14:30 (six years ago) link


psychemagik - everywhere


lex pretend, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 14:30 (six years ago) link

feel like edits of actual fleetwood mac songs dont really count...

max, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 14:55 (six years ago) link

The Rosebuds have several songs with a FM vibe. This might be one of the most obvious:


Moka, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 17:48 (six years ago) link

To me, this Little Big Town track hits the level of sounding like an outtake from Tusk or Mirage, not that that's a bad thing:


But the vocal harmony blend on the choruses is uncannily like the Mac.

Driver 8, Tuesday, 15 October 2013 22:58 (six years ago) link

This may sound more like solo Stevie than FM, but:


Niki & the Dove "Winterheart"

something of an astrological coup (tipsy mothra), Monday, 28 October 2013 18:05 (six years ago) link


Stupor Fly, Tuesday, 29 October 2013 01:28 (six years ago) link

This singer practically owe Christine McVie royalties:


Darin, Tuesday, 29 October 2013 01:36 (six years ago) link

A Girl Called Eddy - The Long Goodbye


cock chirea, Tuesday, 29 October 2013 03:56 (six years ago) link

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals - Parachute Heart


cock chirea, Tuesday, 29 October 2013 03:57 (six years ago) link

Iron & Wine - Tree by the River


cock chirea, Tuesday, 29 October 2013 04:00 (six years ago) link

from the comments there:



max, Monday, 23 December 2013 18:18 (six years ago) link

two months pass...

hmm does this song remind anyone else of the mac?


this patch is evolving (electricsound), Tuesday, 4 March 2014 08:20 (six years ago) link

some glasgow experimental scene folks get together and somehow the result is a rumours homage


Merdeyeux, Tuesday, 4 March 2014 08:47 (six years ago) link

Hope Christine has a check coming in the mail.

This Two Wings song is fantastic.
