"Monday Morning" is a 1975 song written and sung by Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. It is the first track off the multi-platinum selling album Fleetwood Mac.[1] It was later included on the 2002 compilation album, The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac.

Background[edit]

Like "Rhiannon" and I'm So Afraid, "Monday Morning" was intended for the second Buckingham Nicks LP, but they were instead used for Fleetwood Mac's 1975 eponymous release.[2] During live performances from 1975-1978, Buckingham performed an intro that would later become the melody of "Tusk".[citation needed] The song was performed on all tours until the Tango In The Night tour in 1987.[citation needed] It reappeared on the Unleashed Tour in 2009.
