For me, it's "The Garden." Just because it feels like a song that shouts "it's the end of an era." And if RUSH is truly retiring... WHAT A WAY TO GO. :,)

Any other thoughts?

"Afterimage" is a good one, too.

Dog Years. It's right there in the lyrics, "...for every sad son of a bitch".

For me, it would be The Garden, Losing It, Tears, Afterimage, and possibly Ghost Rider.

Afterimage is obvious as is Losing It. The Pass comes  across as very emotional and dealing with teenage problems as well.as Subdivisions.The reason I mention them is only today a single mum with a teenage boy was crying on my shoulder after what was three days of hell.I won't go into details.Also Nobody's Hero.I find that Alex plays some of his most emotive solos on these tracks.

The acoustic live versions of "Resist" are near tear-jerkers.

Yup.  Hemi nailed it.

The Garden would be #2 for me, but definitely The Pass is numero uno.

If you're in the right mood, Subdivisions can be either incredibly empowering or can reduce you to tears. Neil was just too right sometimes.

Also Nobody's Hero is a great mention.
