Runaway Train.  Definatly my favorite.  Grace To Grace isnt far behind.  There are a few tracks though I just cant get into on this album, The Angel's Share is one of them.

I once saw someone on Counterparts refer to Grace to Grace as the best Rush song of the 1990s!!!.

I wouldn't go quite that far, but its not to far away.

It definitely gets my vote here.

This was a very difficult poll. Each of the songs on My Favorite Headache are strong. However, I must say that Home On The Strange stands out for me. My reasoning is that it doesn't sound like Rush from a surface level, but once one truly listens to the song, it's core is Rush.

Well DUH, Geddy Lee is playing and writing the songs.

There is so much amazing material on this CD.  But two songs stand out as the best, and I'm having so much trouble picking which would be my fav.

Runaway Train and Grace To Grace are the clear favs, but not sure which one stands above the other.  

damn..... been hovering over this post for like 20 minutes.  I just don't know.

I have to leave for the firehouse.  Gonna blast them both in the car.  Then I'll come back and make my vote.

Damn, I can't believe I'm the only one who voted for Working at Perfekt.

The others are really good songs as well, but I'm just surprised is all. Oh well, there have not been a lot of votes, anyway. Grace to Grace is quite good, I can understand why it is in the lead even if it's not my first choice.

I love Grace to Grace.  But, Home on the Strange is a close second.  I love the whole album, but I could listen to Grace to Grace all day long!!!

I'm surprized I'm the only one who picked "Window to the World". That song is great. I love that fuzzy tone that guy gets on that one. Sounds cool.  smile.gif

Actually, now I'm one of the other two that have voted for that song.  "My Favorite Headace" is my 2nd favorite on that record.
