"Seven Wonders" is a song by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac from their fourteenth studio album Tango in the Night (1987). Stevie Nicks performed the lead vocals on the song, written by Sandy Stewart, with contributed lyrics by Nicks. In the song, Nicks remembers a love affair in her past. She sings that even if she should live to see the Seven Wonders of the World, doing so would not compare to the beauty of that romance. The song was released on 29 June 1987, by Warner Bros. Records, as the second single from Tango in the Night. It climbed to #19 on the US Billboard Hot 100 on August 15, 1987.
The single was also available on the 12" single format, which included an extended remix, a dub mix and an instrumental, "Book of Miracles", which later became the track "Juliet" on Nicks' fourth solo studio album The Other Side of the Mirror (1989). A limited edition 12" picture disc version was also released in the United Kingdom.
In the accompanying music video, Nicks is singing in the center of a stage with the other members of Fleetwood Mac around her, playing their instruments and contributing vocals. On a background diorama, sketches of seven 'wonders' are pictured, including the Taj Mahal, the Roman Colosseum and the Sphinx. Greek pillars are also placed around the stage.
