On what song will get nineteenth, both "Cut to the Chase", and "Show Don't Tell" were changed to the same amount of eliminates as each other before this second round started.  With "Working Man" getting four early eliminates, and changed to half of them, maybe, had something to do about strategy, too.  There hasn't been anything wrong with, and about the song including it is Rush, and part of their catalog.

I don't get the 4 votes against Working Man at this stage with lots of songs from weak albums still on the board.

Working Man is great for what it is, but it's not what I want from Rush.

At least Working Man contends. Every other song on that album is comparably laughable.

But it should have been gone first. Brilliant playing and I love it, but it's simple. (Compared to the others. But yes, it rocks!)

That's why it's the best of the debut. That fact wasn't ignored. But still, now it has to compete with Rush.

Fair enough, but for me Working Man > Marathon, Distant Early Warning, Force Ten, Dreamline, Driven, Earthshine, Far Cry, Show Don`t Tell, Cut to the Chase
