35. "Oh Daddy"
"That's probably my
favorite Christine song of all time," Nicks confided in the liner notes to
the 2013 reissue of Rumours, "and probably one of the only dark
songs she wrote." Fleetwood has claimed that the lonely, foreboding ballad
was written with him in mind, as he was the only father in the band at the
time. But it was likely another ode to McVie's new boyfriend, Fleetwood Mac
lighting director Curry Grant. McVie later described the ease with which she
composed her songs on Rumours: "One day in Sausalito, I sat and
wrote in the studio, and the four and a half songs of mine on the album are a
result of that."
