50. "I Don't Want to Know"

For any other band, a song like "I Don't Want to Know" might be a focus track. On Rumours, it was just an afterthought, tacked on when the band realized that Nicks' "Silver Springs" was too long to fit on the LP. Nicks later speculated that it was chosen to assuage her because it was one of her own compositions, written before she joined the group. "That always put a shadow over 'I Don't Want to Know,' " she recalled. "Even though I love it and it came out great."
