24. "Hold Me"

Inspired by the recent ending of her relationship with Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys, Christine McVie partnered with English singer-songwriter Robbie Patton to write "Hold Me." It ended up being the band's first single to have a music video, a surrealist clip filmed on a 110-degree day in the Mojave Desert. According to the clip's producer, Simon Fields, "John McVie was drunk and tried to punch me. Stevie Nicks didn't want to walk on the sand with her platforms. Christine McVie was fed up with all of them. Mick thought she was being a bitch, he wouldn't talk to her." Christine later called the experience "a nightmare."
