If it wasn't for a couple of people including one person using course language, who changed to "2112" because of trying to get an advantage, it may've been "2112" in this final with "Xanadu".  Zepp, didn't have a change of heart.  He said, over the years, "2112" meant so much to him, but his favorite Rush song has always been "Xanadu".
Come on, hi water, quit talking like a golfer!

Since we had a tie between the Genesis discography and Yes discography, I'll break the tiebreaker:


Genesis discography it is.
