My top 3 are etched in stone the same as Moving Pictures, Permanent Waves, and Hemispheres....though the top 3 albums and these songs can move around within the top 3. Everything else kind of swirls around too but not too many big moves.

1. Natural Science
2. La Villa Strangiato
3. Xanadu

4. Hemispheres
5. 2112
6. Limelight
7. TSoR
8. Red Barchetta
9. Analog Kid
10. YYZ
11. Cygnus X-1
12. Subdivisions
13. Bastille Day
14. The Camera Eye
15. Working Man
16. Free Will
17. Tom Sawyer
18. Jacob’s Ladder
19. Distant Early Warning
20. Territories

No problem.

Best off Power Windows for me are Territories and Marathon. I find myself singing along more to Territories though than the latter.
Really though, I love every album from the debut to Hold Your Fire so it wasn’t an easy choice. Territories could easily get bumped out of the top 20 by a dozen or so songs.

The lyrics to Territories fit my world view perfectly when I first heard it, and it is easily my fave off Power Windows.

"Better the pride that resides in a citizen of the world,
Than the pride that divides when a colorful rag is unfurled"

I can get Limelight and Xanadu as the top 2 but after that, I'm so torn on what to choose next. Theres no way I can rank songs like this, im surprised this many people have been able to thus far.
