15. "Big Love"

Buckingham described the smoothly rolling first single from Tango in the Night as a "lustful mid-to-up-tempo number featuring love grunts." As it turns out, the sex-soaked "ah" to Buckingham's "uh" that we hear wasn't a vocal throwdown with Nicks, but his own voice sped up. "It was about a guy who was kind of a lonely guy on a hill in a house kind of hanging out by himself," Buckingham said of "Big Love" in 2005. "When I look back on it now, I'm still living on the same hill, but in a new house and with a family, from a whole different perspective. So the song has taken on kind of an irony."
