28. "World Turning"

The band's 1968 debut, Fleetwood Mac, contains a Peter Green song, "The World Keeps on Turning," and when the revamped Buckingham-Nicks lineup recorded its own Fleetwood Mac in 1975, they modified the old blues number to "World Turning." Fleetwood plays a talking drum presented to him in 1969 by Speedy, a Nigerian musician gigging in London at the time, and Buckingham adds a metallic country blues sound with his dobro work. The song's been a fixture of their set for four decades, complete with a frenzied Fleetwood drum solo.
