But, but I love both songs!  I don't want to choose.  Pfffft...fine.  TBE just barely above MR.  But just barely.   And only because it's part of the perfect tryptic of The Enemy Within, TBE, and Kid Gloves that makes Grace Under Pressure so good.  Mystic Rhythms though, there's something about that beat in the beginning.   And I love the imagery of the lyrics.  I totally get it.

Hm...TBE is vastly underrated, but MR is both underrated and rarely mentioned.

I prefer PoW over GuP, so I'll go with MR. Both are excellent though.

The Body Electric by quite a lot.  It's so different and a lot of fun to play. Great bass part.

The Body Electric is a power punch.

Mystic Rhythm is okay but the monotony of the song is snooze-worthy.

Body Electric, definitely.  Took me a long time to appreciate it, but now it's among my favorite Rush tunes.

Mystic Rhythms has been the opposite.  Loved it early on, now think it's just ok.

Same with me.  I loved the song initially, but not now.

Body Electric has grown on me, and it was KILLER to hear it live a few tours ago.

That said, I've loved Mystic Rhythms ever since 1986.  Part of its title wound up in my screenname.. no it's not my favorite Rush song but I dig it a LOT.

I thought so for a long time but over the years I've come to like the concert vids from Exit...Stage Left and the Moving Pictures studio vids more.

Other than those, the Subdivisions vid would be way up there too.
