Music by Christine McVie: 5 songs in her honor





CNN

There’s a reason why Christine McVie is considered the heart of Fleetwood Mac.

The band’s keyboardist, who passed away Wednesday after a brief illness at the age of 79, He is also the author of some of the group’s best-loved songs.

Here are just five of those tunes:

This is tied to some TV series.

Fleetwood Mac is known in part for their turbulent relationships, especially when it comes to romantic relationships.

Band members Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham had a bad ending and McVie famously married and then divorced their other bandmate, John McVie.

He is said to have thought the song, with the lyrics “You’re amazing / You make me happy with the things you do / Oh, can it be / This feeling follows me everywhere, ” about their dog when McVies married at the time.

But it turns out that Christine McVie wrote the love song in honor of the band’s lighting director, with whom she had an affair.

Another tune from their popular “Rumours” album.

“Do not stop” proved to be a hopeful anthem for the future, which meant so much to former President Bill Clinton that he used it as an anthem during his 1992 election campaign.

On Wednesday, he tweeted a tribute to McVie.

“I am deeply saddened by the passing of Christine McVie. “Don’t Stop” was my ’92 campaign theme song – it perfectly captures the mood of a nation eager for better days,” he tweeted. “I am very grateful to Christine & Fleetwood Mac for entrusting us with such a meaningful song. I will miss her.”

This is actually a solo song by McVie.

The first single aside from her eponymous solo album, it looks like it could be a Fleetwood Mac song with its bubbly beat and soulful chorus, “Ooh, I got a love/I got someone/This love has a hold on me.”

Plus Buckingham plays guitar on this one, making it even more Fleetwood Mac sound.

“Tell me you love me” is a fun tune that has become a mainstay on rock radio stations and is easy to listen to.

She reflected on the sweet harmonies she, Nicks and Buckingham hit on the tune in a 1990 interview.

“The first time I started playing ‘Say You Love Me’ and I got to the chorus, they started singing along with me and fell in love right away.” Performing Musicians Magazine reported on her statement. “I heard this incredible sound, the voices of the three of us… and I got goosebumps.”

I feel it’s right that so many people on social media have used this song to pay their respects to McVie after her passing.

The ballad she wrote was considered the perfect tribute to a deceased person.

Playing it now after her death seems haunting as she pours herself into the opening lyrics, “For you, there will be no more tears/For you, the sun will shine/And I feel it when I’m with you/ It’s okay, I know it’s true.”
