Fleetwood Mac Songs That Would Sound Great w/ Neil Finn

Fleetwood Mac has already said that they plan to play "Don't Dream It's Over" on the upcoming tour. 

As far as the Fleetwood Mac songs planned for the selist, I assume the band will look to focus on songs that will work well with Neil and Mike (Campbell).

Here are some of ideas for possible songs for the setlist.  What are others?

1. Temporary One (The Bridge)

2. Dust

3. Man of The World

4. Beautiful Child

5. Storms

6. Sisters of The Moon

7. Mabel Normand

8. Heart of Stone

9. Italian Summer

10. Kind of Woman

11. Oh Daddy

12. Fireflies

13. Planets of The Universe

14. Why

15. Come A Little Bit Closer

16. Cascades

17. Crystal

18. Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You

19.  Songbird

20. Beauty & The Beast

21. Oh Well

22. Hypnotized

23. Say You Love Me

24. Thrown Down

25. Say You Will

 

Original Post

Fun fact: Peacekeeper, the lead single from Fleetwood Mac's 2003 Say You Will album was actually ghostwritten by Neil.

It was originally demoed during the early 2001 One Nil sessions from (I think) March 2001, or perhaps it was the late 2001 One All sessions?

It's also the most Neil-sounding song of theirs, so would definitely love to hear a live Finnwood Mac version of it. Give it a listen if you haven't already, it's on Spotify.

Very interesting! Is the Neil demo "floating around"?

That's cool.  How do you know Neil wrote the song?  I can't find anything online to confirm this.

I have found this page of compiled  Lindsay Buckingham interviews talking about  writing Peacekeeper.

Musically, Peacekeeper reminds me of Paul Simon’s Kodachrome.  Lyrically, it has Neil’s open ended approach

Now I know why Peacekeeper sounded so familiar the first time I heard it. The melody is definitely very similar to Kodachrome.

Will also read that link, cheers.

I really have mixed thoughts about this whole thing. At the end of the day, this is Neil having a dream come true scenario, so it's for no-one to say he should or shouldn't do it. 

If Nick , Mark and Matt asked me to join Crowded House, I'd be all over it ! so ...

The thing is though , why would Fleetwood Mac play Crowded House songs? I'd have thought the idea would be to play existing Fleetwood Mac songs and write new ones. 

If Neil wants to play Crowded House songs, why not play them with Crowded House ?

This for me turns Fleetwood Mac into a type of "Ringo Starr's All Star band" , where everybody brings along their hit songs.

Interestingly , Crowded House don't do stuff from Neil's solo career..

CH has done some Enz stuff, at least one anyway.

I would probably prefer to see Neil in the All Starr Band opposed to FM, personally. He would still sing and would still play. The tickets would be cheaper, and he would probably contribute more to the banter, without any of the fallout. 

I think this is kind of a happy accident nonetheless. Bigger band, bigger tour. Yet imagine if he'd have had a heart-to-heart with David Gilmour instead!

Point is, Anything this man lends talent to will be a new and heightened experience.   This is just his would be backing band under other circumstances. The sonics will be great. Freshly exhilarating I daresay. 

I grew up in the 70's, and most every band would do a LIVE album. I don't know if FM did one, so all more the reason. I wish to buy a copy of this tour's live album.
