Let's see, something on Hold your Nose vs something else.

Something else always wins.

Meh, Dreamline is a fine Rush tune, but it feels like a rockier rehash of DEW to me and always has. I'm not a big fan of Prime Mover either, but I think it has more interesting textures and arrangement, which I appreciate for the sake of repeated listens.

Also, Dreamline is on RTB, which I rarely listen to cuz I think it kinda sucks, whereas PM is on HYF, which I listen to only slightly more often cuz I think it's kinda weak. The scales tip in favor of PM there as well.

It's Prime Mover for me because Hold Your Fire was my true introduction to Rush. I knew Tom Sawyer, Limelight, Fly By Night, and the handful of songs the local rock station played. HYF came out right as I began my senior year of high school and Time Stand Still was getting regular play. Even at seventeen something in that song resonated deeply with me. I bought the album and became hooked. I would sit on the floor in the dark listening through my headphones. Prime Mover quickly became my favorite track. I actually ruined the tape because I rewound it so much. It is still near the top of my list. I wish the production was a little "beefier" but I'll still take it.

FWIW, I love Dreamline as well. I was playing keyboards and singing in a band that did a few Rush songs at the time it came out. The song debuted on the radio right before the album came out and we recorded it and learned it. I think we may have actually played it live before Rush did. I'm sure they did it a little better though.
