OK, this is my attempt. This probably won't be accurate or consistent.
I managed to get it down to twelve:

Subdivisions
Leave That Thing Alone
Animate
The Larger Bowl
Vital Signs
La Villa Strangiato
The Pass
Dreamline
Secret Touch
Cygnus X-1
Red Sector A

And let's not forget Closer to the Heart biggrin.gif

I haven't been able to pick my personal top ten list of Rush's songs because there are too many great ones to choose from.  It's easier to put together, and make a list of twenty by picking, and choosing them.  My top twenty list is:

1.) Xanadu
2.) Cygnus X-1: Book One - the Voyage
3.) Cygnus X-1: Book Two - Hemispheres
4.) Jacob's Ladder
5.) Natural Science
6.) the Camera Eye
7.) Countdown
8.) Between the Wheels
9.) Marathon
10.) Mission
11.) Available Light
12.) Dreamline
13.) Animate
14.) Resist
15.) By-Tor and the Snow Dog
16.) Working Man
17.) Bastille Day
18.) A Passage to Bangkok
19.) Nocturne
20.) (Tie) Armor and Sword, the Garden
