Available on iTunes
Great news for Christine's "Everywhere" single from the "Tango In The Night" album... It was certified SILVER in the UK by the BPI on July 4, 2014 signifying sales in excess of 200,000 units since it's release. 

The songs renewed popularity in the UK began in early 2013, twenty five years after it's initial release and success in the UK all thanks to cell phone provider 'THREE' and it's marketing campaign focusing on the cute little dancing pony (see video). Not long after the commercial began airing in the UK and made available on-line, the song re-entered the UK Singles Chart peaking as high as No.15 giving Fleetwood Mac their first top 20 hit in the UK in 25 years. Incidentally their last top 20 hit in 1988 just happened to be "Everywhere" which peaked at No.4! Later in 2013 "Everywhere" was also included on the new music compilation released in the UK called "Now That's What I Call Music 84".

With streaming music gaining in popularity worldwide and the change in the UK in June to include streaming counts towards charts, sales and certifications (100 streams as being equivalent to 1 single (download or physical single) when sales thresholds are being measured) more and more singles in the UK will and have been certified... So if you subscribe to an on-demand streaming service like Spotify, Deezer, Napster, O2 Tracks, Xbox Music and Sony’s Music Unlimited and rara, stream some Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie or Lindsey Buckingham!
