|Fleetwood Mac singles chronology|
"Sisters of the Moon" is a song by Anglo-American rock group Fleetwood Mac. It was written and performed by band-member Stevie Nicks and was released in the US as the fourth single from the 1979 album Tusk. It was not a big hit and peaked at #86.
The song was not released in the UK, where "Not That Funny" had been released as a single instead. The rare 'single version' of "Sisters of the Moon" is included on the 2002/2009 compilation The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac.
When performed live, the song would usually go for over 8 minutes in length. A very well known example of this performance is the Mirage Tour version in 1982. The performance is referred to as the 'speaking in tongues' performance in which Stevie Nicks delivers the song's coda in such an intense, gravelly manner that her words become indecipherable. The video is regarded as one of Nicks' finest live performances by her fanbase.
