Vital Signs
Nobody's Hero

and probably some others I've forgotten

Dog Years hands down!

(Ironically my most hated Pink Floyd song is Dogs of War?!?!)

I must have something with songs about dogs, but I DO love the Pink Floyd song DOGS!


never mind..........that blows THAT theory!


But yeah,  Dog Years sucks!  The next sucky tune is Virtuality, I usually hit next after the intro!

After all these years I really CAN'T listen to Tom Sawyer anymore...it's WAY played out! After I hear it on any new release, (boot included) I never "consciously" listen to it again..I get the same way with Yes' Roundabout and Your Move/All Good People...just can't stand to hear them anymore!

Heresy (my least favorite Rush song)
Second Nature (like the chorus, but the verses do nothing for me)

...much less catchy than either of the 2 songs that get hated-on most, Virtuality & Dog Years!

I think I'm going to get e-smacked for this, but here I go anyway.

The Big Money
Dog Years
Cinderella Man
Closer To The Heart (GASP!)
Limelight

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. It seems like there should be a few more on that list, though.

Anything on Roll the Bones excluding Dreamline, RtB (yet including that rap part!), Ghost of A Chance and Face Up. Definitely including Bravado [Alöex might have used the good solo an a song less boring], Heresy and You Bet Your Life!!!
I Think I'm Going Bald
In The Mood (utter crap, IMHO)
Emotion Detector


I may get stoned for the next two, but I find them increasingly ridiculous:
The Fountain of Lamneth
Hemispheres, Side One


... there are some more I'm not too much into (e.g. the complete first album), but the above ones are those that had better never been recorded.

Losing It
Tai Shan
Available Light
Ghost Of A Chance
Nobody's Hero
War Paint
Driven
Dog Years
Ceiling Unlimited
The Stars Look Down

But pretty much everything else I love. : )

Available Light?  Ceiling Unlimited?  Say it ain't so, dude!

Well, to each his own.  Personally, I think "Available Light" is Geddy's best vocal performance.

I must also disagree with the poster (Circumstancial Tree) who said he didn't like "Double Agent."
