These are the tunes that I often see listed as TRFers' personal Rush favorites. I'm not sure (yet) that all of them are on my personal ten best list but some of them surely are. I'll have to give it some more thought before I vote.

The option "It might be/I'm not sure" isn't one of the voting options but talk about it all you want in a post.

I actually doubt this list is anyone's full Top 10.

Post your own top 10 if you like/can.

Choose multiple answers if applicable.

I think I've got six of them on there, in no particular order: Xanadu, Hemispheres, 2112, Red Barchetta, The Spirit of Radio, Freewill.

What would my other ones be? Good question. Limelight light be on there too actually. Maybe La Villa.

And others that could be on there Fly By Night, Cinderella Man, A Farewell to Kings.

Hemispheres
Red Barchetta
Limelight
La Villa
The Spirit of Radio
Freewill
Fly By Night
Cinderella Man

On the fringes (of the city): YYZ, A Farewell to Kings, Bastille Day, Closer to the Heart, The Trees, Circumstances, Subdivisions, Passage to Bangkok.

2112 and Book II are mainstays for the most part ... Natural Science floats in and out of the Top 10 .. La Villa comes close, but without Geddy's voice, it's a not Top 10

- Cygnus X1
- The Necromancer
- Circumstances
- Jacob's Ladder
- Garden Road
- 2112
- Book II
- In The Mood
- Tears
- By Tor


What You're Doing and A Passage could be there on any given day

Nature Science would be in top ten

I can't make a top ten but I'm sure Natural Science is in there, I can only chose a favorite Rush song and that would be The Big Money lol :)

Rush has so many Top 10 worthy songs - I didn't even mention The Trees

It's hard enough to put a list together when you like so many of the songs, and virtually impossible when you love them ..

Exactly. And that's why I didn't include the easy way out with "I'm not sure" as an option because everyone would be clicking it!

Earthshine at #8.  Locked in my top 10.

My favorite off VT. :yes:

I easily like it more than anything off T4E or Snakes. :yes:

If there were a Top 10 List for just Presto - Clockwork, it'd make that Top 10. :yes:

Great great song but it's just outmuscled by all my favorites from 2112 - Signals.

But my top ten aren't in any particular order...

Natural Science
2112
Xanadu
Here Again
In The End
Nobody's Hero
The Enemy Within
The Body Electric
Kid Gloves
Vital Signs
The Trees

And it's fluid...some songs come into vogue with me, some go out of vogue for a while.  But they're usually always flowing between top 10 and 20.  But these are the ones I love the most.  The ones I'll listen to on repeat without blinking an eye.  The three from GUP I like to listen to in a row as it is right off the album as God intended.  ;)

Sometimes Subdivisons and Limelight too.

Others that are always in that top 10:

Bravado
Mission
Territories
Analog Kid

And sometimes:
Between the Wheels
Ghost of a Chance
Time Stand Still
Grand Designs
Entre Nous

I have Dreamline at #4, The Pass at #5, and Mission at #9.

The classics are world beaters for sure, but I just can't have a personal favorites list without my select "modern" songs.
