I am disappointed that "DIDACTS AND NARPETS" was not listed. Although a short song it still deserves to be included.  The best Drumming ever NeilFinal.gif  1022.gif

The Necromancer is the best, in my opinion, although Didacts And Narpets from The Fountain Of Lamneth deserves some recognition. Awesome face/gut busting drum 'solo'.

I voted here back in October, but posted no response.  I am going to trust I voted for Bastille Day, for I just love that song.  I have recently taken a strong liking to The Necromancer as well.

I don't consider "Fountain of Lamneth" as one song, but rather several different songs. Nevertheless, my fave tune is probably "Lakeside Park"

[FONT=Geneva][SIZE=7][COLOR=red] drool1.gif Im starting to see a pattern here.. it must be because Im a fatasy fan and well I remember learning these songs way beck when on the drums and they seem to be the most exciting. The Necromancer is definately the most fun to drum!

Bastille Day... The analog delay during the song.....the echo box....was just so cool....My friends and I used to play it over and over again and just like Wayne and Garth in the Pacer in Wayne's World.....That was us......"We are not worthy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I have to confess... I never really liked the studio version of  Bastille Day or Lakeside Park. I first got into  2.gif  with ATWAS!!! I was spoiled with those versions and when I heard the studio version of both songs it just never clicked with me. If I had to choose between "THE NECROMANCER & THE FOUNTAIN OF LAMNETH"  I will have to go with "FOUNTAIN" wub.gif It brings back so many cool cool.gif  memories. Fan since 77'

Fountain of Lamenth.  The drumms, legnth, story, and guitars all rule this song.  And It doesnt have the boring narrator The Necromancer has.  Neil rocks this song, especially with his mini solo.

one of my favs is "I Think Im Going Bald" call me weird, i just love that song, its kinda fun, and just represents their goofeyness of their personal lives in the band, and about how Alex was afraid to be bald, now look at him!!

Bastille Day for me, the intro is one of the best I've ever heard, Fountain Of Lamneth runs a close second though.

I Think I'm Going Bald really hits a nerve for some reason  confused13.gif

bastille day is just one ass-kicking song, so my award goes to it, but the beautiful lakeside park is a REALLY close second...

Caress of Steel was the first Rush album I purchased on my own. I think I was ten years old. The Fountain of Lamneth is definitely the best song off the album. There are so many life lessons in it. It helped me (as well as every other Rush song) get a better perspective on life at such a young age. I owe Rush a lot!
