Track 16 is “Honey Hi” (2.43 minutes). This is a Christine McVie composition with a gentle intro, and is a sweet pop song (no pun intended). She sings, and Stevie Nicks joins in the middle 8 refrain. It is quite a pleasant little ditty. From that middle 8:
“Lord, it’s good to talk to you
Even sweeter than wine
Don’t take the love light away
‘Cause I’m far away from home”.
Track 17 is one of the best on the album, and is “Beautiful Child” (5.19 minutes). This is a Stevie Nicks song in which she sings the lead vocals, but splendid use is made of both the other vocalists, often harmonising. The piece also has haunting lyrics, some of which follow, and all in all this is an excellent track.
“You say it will be harder in the morning
I wait for you to say, just go
Your hands, held mine so few hours
And I’m not a child anymore
I’m not a child anymore
I’m tall enough
To reach for the stars
I’m old enough
To love you from afar
To trusting – yes?
But then women usually are”.
Track 18 is “Walk A Thin Line” (3.44 minutes), a slow, plodding thing from Lindsey Buckingham where all the vocalists give their all. This is very agreeable to listen to. Here is a sample from the lyrics:
“They told me that I never would recover
Still some say they knew me well
I said “Stay by my side”
But no one said nothin’
I walk a thin line”.
