Which song means more to you?

For me it's The Real Me and it's not even close! Anthem kicks ass, but The Real me is so fu**ing special tune.

Anthem is a consistent top 10 Rush song. No contest.

Anthem live gives it a run but The Who song is kind of iconic and I'm not really much of a fan. Sometimes you just gotta give it up...

Yesterday I watched a video of one of The Who songs taped in what appeared to be a recording studio and noticed two things:  1) that Pete, who rarely smiles, has a beautiful smile, and 2) that John was really a good looking man

Not much of a contest here as I never connected with The Who outside of respect for contributions to music .. Emotionally, they leave me flat, and The Real Me is a perfect example

Anthem, on the other hand, is great Rush, and for me, a perfect example of the students surpassing the teacher, big time

The Real Me for me. Of course if we're talking about the ATWAS version of Anthem it might be a different story.

I knew you'd appreciate that, lol.

But yeah ATWAS version of Anthem blows the studio cut out of the water. That beast was meant to be played live.
