That was unexpected.

I would have very on Earthshine, even though I really like that song. Or Marathon.

I've already voted but I would be tempted to change and give Xanadu a protective vote. Hopefully normality will be resumed over the next few votes.

Why are people keeping Earthshine in? It's average at best, with an average riff. It's one of the weakest songs on Vapor Trails. The riff just goes der der, der der. That's what you guys are into is it, der der, der der!

Let's all sing the Earthshine riff together, ready?

DER DER, DER DER, DER DER, DER DER! :16ton:

Don`t worry, it`s only _hi_water. and I that would ever vote to eliminate Xanadu, we know it won`t work :laughing guy: (But it`s a genuine vote :ph34r: )

I guess I'd rather Marathon go than Red Barchetta or Xanadu. But seriously, Earthshine needed to be gone first round.

The song from "Counterparts" is "Cut to the Chase", and not called "Counterparts".  When it comes to thinking, saying, and doing something including picking, and choosing Rush songs, I know "Ibanez", wouldn't change, and hasn't changed anything, and "Water", has sometimes, made some changes including making mistakes.  I wasn't one, who wants "Earthshine" to stay.  From "Power Windows", "Marathon" is, and has been the best song.  About "Far Cry", I wasn't surprised.  I see some people haven't wanted to stay, and be consistent, too.  In spite, even if it is, and was a joke, maybe, I'll start doing the same thing by shaking up to the other obvious Rush song favorites "Natural Science", "2112", and "By-Tor and the Snow Dog".  For loving to liking Rush song winners from their nineteen c.ds, and albums, here is mine.  

Xanadu
Marathon
2112
By-Tor and the Snow Dog
Working Man
Natural Science
Subdivisions
Force Ten
Bastille Day
Dreamline
Show Don't Tell
La Villa Strangiato (An Exercise In Self-Indulgence)
Distant Early Warning
Headlong Flight
Driven
Earthshine
Red Barchetta
Cut to the Chase
Far Cry

I was thinking that whoever voted for Xanadu must be on drugs.  But if you were on drugs, there is no way you would vote off Xanadu.

Even if Xanadu isn't really on the chopping block, I had to give it immunity for my own sanity. Also, HOW does Earthshine keep slipping through the cracks?

So maybe one of the non-eliminators may win the final round - cruising under the radars, does anyone want to go for Distant Early Warning to be the last man standing?

It's not even in my top 3 of the only Rush album I genuinely hate

I`ve never tried any drugs, which may explain why appreciation of Xanadu eludes me? :huh:

Or maybe there's plenty of songs that are better than Alex practicing his scales.
