My favorites were A and D, but I went with D.  Couldn't pass up the reverse chronological order and the first set with Far Cry, Dreamline, Mission, Red Sector A and Analog Kid.  Not to mention Xanadu, etc to follow.  :heart:

Any of them as long as we could have a time machine and go back to get pre-2000’s Geddy to sing them.

This was my first thought. No matter the set-list, who can do vocals at this point?...

I went with A although I like all the other ones as well. I'm inclined to give you my own personal fantasy setlist so why not give my own personal taste on it? I will go ahead and say some of this is inspired by the R30 set-list so please don't get any pitchforks ready since the setlist I propose is similar to one that's been done before. Also, let's imagine that all three members weren't suffering from any playing/singing deterioration (no offense). Deep tracks included as well.

Part 1:
1. Instrumedley (Finding My Way. Anthem, Bastille Day, Something for Nothing, Cygnus X-1, Hemispheres Prelude, Entre Nous)
2. The Spirit of Radio
3. Subdivisions
4. Dreamline
5.Lock and Key (with Last Mile intro)
6. Red Barchetta
7. Show Don't Tell
8. Bravado
9. Marathon
10. Caravan
11 .Test For Echo
12. Stick It Out
13. Distant Early Warning
14. Vital Signs
15. Closer to the Heart
16. Freewill

{Intermission}

Part 2:
1. The Big Money (with Also spruce Zarathustra intro)
2. Driven (with bass solo)
3. Where's My Thing?
4. Mission
5. Jacob's Ladder
6. YYZ (with drum solo)
7. Broon's Bane/The Trees
8. New World Man
9. Roll the Bones
10. Chemistry
11. Red Sector A
13. Natural Science
14. By-Tor and the Snow Dog
15. The Camera Eye
16. In the End
17. Witch Hunt

Encore:
1.  Xanadu
2. Tom Sawyer
3. La Villa Strangiato
4. 2112 (Overture/Temples of Syrinx/Grand Finale)

35 songs (which include the beasts of By-Tor, La Villa, and Natural Sci), a massive medley, AND most of 2112?! Your fantasy setlist, though an awesome one, would hospitalize them! These aren't wimpy little pop songs they'd be playing.

I forgot to add the setlist where the only song is Tai Shan for 2 hours straight...

I went with B.  My 3 favorite Rush songs (2112, Subdivisions & Time Stand Still) plus a bunch of deep cuts & 80's music - yup, thats it for me.

Now, to improve it, get YYZ out of the set list and replace it with The Main Monkey Business or La Villa.  Plus get rid of the Finding my Way / In the Mood medley and replace it with The Big Money.   Also add Freewill & Limelight and take out Jacobs Ladder & Red Lenses (yes, thats 2 deep cuts, just not 2 would want).  Finally, replace Animate & The Spirit of Radio with Everyday Glory (never played live to the best of my knowlege), Cold Fire and / or Presto

But even so, that my preferred list.

Which song? Rush comes close in The Analog Kid with "Too many hands on my time," but if you're a Styx fan...
