Songs with a Girls' Name in the Title #31

31. Rhiannon – Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac…more people have been in that band than bought the last Vanilla Ice album. Every lineup has brought something different. While the casting change that added Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham to Mick Fleetwood, John McVee and Christine McVee’s existing roster is possibly the band’s best lineup , you’ve got to admit that the arrival of Nicks added a bit of a creepiness to the band. That is perhaps no better demonstrated than with Nicks’ ode to a welsh witch, “Rhiannon.” There’s just something about the combination of Buckingham’s guitar and Nicks' sinister voice, not to mention a bass line from McVee that thumps in pit of your stomach, that makes you want to pull the covers over your head.
