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

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

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

did you miss the beat AND the link?

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

southern cumlord (electricsound), Thursday, 10 October 2013 00:34 (five 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:

Absolutely so!

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

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

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

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

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:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlqiKqntdgo

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

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

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

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

Hope Christine has a check coming in the mail.

This Two Wings song is fantastic.
