Stevie Nicks’ Top 10 biggest Billboard hits

“Stand Back!” It’s time to celebrate Stevie Nicks‘ birthday (May 26) with a special look back at her biggest hits on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.

In this exclusive recap of the rock goddess’ biggest hits, we include not just her solo material, but also those songs she sang lead vocals on with her band Fleetwood Mac.

Leading the list is her collaboration with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” which reached No. 3 on the Hot 100 chart on Sept. 5, 1981. The song spent 21 weeks on the list — the longest of any Nicks or Fleetwood Mac tune on the tally. “Draggin'” was Nicks’ debut solo single, and the lead track from her first album, Bella Donna. The latter set ultimately reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and was the first of so far 13 charting efforts for the diva.

At No. 2 on our recap is Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams,” which was written by Nicks and features her on lead vocals. (The band’s Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie — the group’s two other lead vocalists — provide harmony and background vocals.)

Stevie Nicks’ Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits chart (below) is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100 ranking. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, certain eras are weighted to account for different chart turnover rates over various periods.
