ChristineMcVieStudioRecordiHearing that Christine McVie passed away earlier this month is just another reminder that we are all getting older. I still think of her as “the emotional glue in a band that has spent the past 50 years breaking up over and over, the most stable, sensible, down-to-earth member of rock’s most unstable, senseless, lost-in-space circus,” as Rob Sheffield’s Rolling Stone article commented.

As a music listener, I’m saddened to lose another singer and songwriter that I grew up listening to in the 1970s. Oh, I know she was a performer before Fleetwood Mac (Chicken Shack in the 1960s as Christine Perfect) and after as a solo musician, but I only knew of her has the keyboardist and vocalist with Fleetwood Mac.

So for today’s Music Monday, how about including two of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers’ hits from the album Rumours: The top ten hit “You Make Loving Fun” and her biggest “Don’t Stop.” Also below is a YouTube clip from Lone Wolf Media briefly covering McVie’s career.

You Make Loving Fun
Don’t Stop
