I put YYZ. It is cool. It is about an airport. I love the Morse-coding. I hope next time there is Game Zone we can play it on Guitar Hero.

"La Villa Strangiato" has my pick. It's so incredibly complex, as the entirety of the Hemispheres album is, and always amazing to see performed live. Especially the Rush in Rio version. Crazy Alex. laugh.gif

Neil: Mr. Milton Banana
Geddy: That Guy From Ipanema
Alex: Stan Getz

Anyway...as Jakk Wylde of Black Label Society said in Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage: "When you listen to early Rush, it seems like the riffs were simpler. It got more complex as they kept going. The arrangements would be so long. The boys would be up there going, 'We did write this, didn't we? What part of the song are we in?!'" Well said, sir. tongue.gif

Neil's Drum Solo from the VT tour. Sometimes I wonder if that man is really human.

If I had to choose an actual Rush song though, I'd go with La Villa Strangiato.

leave that thing alone and limbo after that i think

I have to agree on all counts. LTTA is cool and has so many different musical elements in it, but la Villa is just pure chewing satisfaction.

Truly, La Villa is the most stunning bit of music I have ever heard from a rock band. If the studio version won't trip your trigger, the version from ESL is absolutely other worldly.

As much as I like YYZ, LTTA & Limbo etc, it just HAS to be La Villa Strangiato.

La Villa. Alex really amazes me with how he builds up the guitar, slowly, the notes sparse and then bam! Reminds me of what Miles Davis said about his own playing, something along the lines of the empty space between the notes being as important as the notes themselves.

Has to go with the beginning of Cygnus X-1.

Seems to be not so popular however it is the first one I heard and I used to jam to it quite a bit.

Malignant Narcissism for the groove... but since it's not on the list, La Villa.
