13. "You Make Loving Fun"
In 1976, Christine McVie's
patience with husband John's alcoholism reached its end, and she started dating
the band's lighting director Curry Grant. The exaltation of that new
relationship can be heard on "You Make Loving Fun," a buoyantly
funk-infused snapshot of a woman availing herself of rock-star sexual freedom.
(To protect John's feelings, Christine told him it was about her dog.) Rumours
co-producer Ken Caillat was amazed during the session for "You Make Loving
Fun," when he witnessed Buckingham and Nicks get into a vicious argument
while recording backing vocals, then pause and nail their parts perfectly.
