No doubt in my mind about this one:

XANADUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!! 1022.gif  1022.gif

The section at the beginning when Alex stops playing around and decides to let fly with the riffs is one of my favorite moments in all of their recorded work.

Wowzer!

'A Farewell To Kings'. So very relevant and timeless.

Cinderalla Man. Geddy wrote the lyrics after watching Mr. Deeds Goes To Town directed by Frank Capra, starring Gary Cooper. Much better than the Adam Sandler version.
I love the lyrics, but really the drums and guitar solo are cool. Title track is number 2 for me.

This is my favorite Rush album. It also has my favorite song on it, Cygnus! This whole album for me just does it. From the popular song Closer To The Heart to Madrigal, it just has it all.

Gotta be Xanadu - My 10 year old son also says it's his favourite song of all time because of the guitar just after "frozen in an everlasting view"

after staring at the list for 5 minutes I gave up.

AFTK, Xanadu and Cygnus are all faves of mine (maybe because its the first tour I saw)

sorry...no vote from me confused13.gif

my favorite rush song ever was by far CYGNUS X-1  book one from a farewell to kings and book 2 from hemispere they had a great ideal to release it on two separate albums only rush could come up with that
