Digital Man is probably my favorite of those.

And I'm not sure but probably none of them would break the Top 20 borderline. If I'm not diligent enough, one of them might be able to sneak in every once in a while.

The Weapon is a wicked prog rock song.  Best on Signals... at least I think so.

Losing it, it's a very moody and haunting track. None are in my top 20 though.

Either Chemistry or The Weapon.  I'll go with The Weapon today.

Those two and Subdivisions are in my Rush top twenty.  Subdivisions is my favorite Rush song in general.

The Analog Kid wouldn't even make my Signals top five, though I do like it.  Signals is a strong album.

The Weapon.

Not sure if it would make my top 20 since I've never made a list of my top 20 Rush tunes.

Interesting, I've never heard that before. I always thought they parted ways because the guys didn't care for the sound on signals and wanted a change. I agree Digital Man has a really nice groove.

The thing for Signals for me is how the whole thing comes together to form a complete whole. After Subdivisions (top 5 song) and AK (top 20) the rest just comes complete as a thematic run and theres nor a skipable moment thru the whole album. Its hard to gauge what my favorite song is after that. Its all top shelf stuff.

After that, Chemistry and everything else is forgettable

I mean, it's one of their best records, and the biggest highlights are mostly the ones you left out so everything else is pretty consistent. However, Losing, New World Man, and Digital Man could all probably sit in my top 20 without making any permanent waves (:P). My fav is probably between New World Man and Losing It.
