Guys, you’re on a Rush fan board.  You don’t have to say you only like the obscure songs to prove your bona fides.

I think people are taking Geddy's "sometimes people like Presto" a little too seriously.

It stands up well as an enduring hard rock classic. In my top 30 Rush songs definitely.

Well, if sine qua non loosely translates to "without which, nothing" - then Working Man fits that definition.  If it hadn't been played on the radio, Rush might not have made it.
