The songs listed I feel carry some "cult status" among Rush fans.  This is just one fan's opinion.

It could be a deep track.  A song never played live.  An overlooked song people connect with emotionally.  Maybe an awesome guitar part, etc...

Once again, just my opinion of some songs held in high regard by a segment of the fan base.

Choose your favorite and least favorite.  Good luck!

Appreciate your thoughts.  Yeah, it was harder for me to pick a favorite (and least) from the list than I thought it would be.  In general I like all of these songs.

Tough call for most favorite but I went with Vital Signs. Between the Wheels and Available Light were contesting.
Least favorite was definitely Kid Gloves though I do like it.
Not a bad tune in the bunch.

Kid Gloves is one of my favorite Rush songs, I just said in another poll that I don't get why it isn't liked more.

Between the Wheels has some elements that I really like, but the beginning has always annoyed me. If I'm playing on a format where I can, I skip the beginning.

Available Light has always bored me, although I like it better now than I used to.

For all the love it gets, I should've included Grand Designs to this list.

It doesn't seem to get the same level of praise, but I'm definitely cult-ish in support of Vapor Trail.

I love all of these songs, but I think The Garden just ekes out Between the Wheels and Available Light.  As for my least favorite, that's not fair, but if I have to pick one it's probably Turn The Page.

I love Grand Designs!  Well, except for the ending.  I always call it "The Song That Never Ends."

I love the ending fade out in GD.  Especially the drums
