Doesn't this section of the forum exist specifically for polls?  Kinda like wandering into one of the non-Rush forums and then complaining that Rush isn't being discussed enough.  If you're tired of polls, just ignore them.

This one is close.  Always loved Marathon, but it's a bit bloated.  I've recently come to better appreciate what a well crafted tune DEW is, so it gets my vote.

Marathon is a monster tune!  The chorus lyrics are some of my favorite Rush lyrics.

Marathon is a top 10 song by Rush for me, DEW is good but no where as good as Marathon

Great poll.  Keep 'em coming...

DEW for me.  Marathon is fine, but it doesn't really stand out from the other average PoW songs.

Marathon is one of the only post-MP songs to nearly make my top ten, DEW is super great too, but it has to be Marathon.

"From first to last
The peak is never passed
Something always fires the light that gets in your eyes
ONE MOMENT'S HIGH
And glory rolls on by
LIKE A STREAK OF LIGHTNING
THAT FLASHES AND FADES in the summer sky!"

And modulations, lol.

Marathon, every day of the week.  I like DEW, but Marathon has so much power and majesty to it.
