Being the Modest Man From Mandrake I had to go with Cinderella Man. That's one of my favorite rush tunes that's why I chose this name when I signed up. 2.gif  2.gif  2.gif  2.gif  2.gif  2.gif  2.gif  2.gif

Oh man, Cygnus X-1 easily. Haha, when I was around 14 I played it over and over again jamming along with a tennis racket, strainng my voice to keep up with Geddy. "spinning, whirling, still descending, like a spiral sea, UNENDING, sound and fury, drowns my heart, every nerve, is TORN APART!

God, it's a hard choice, between Cygnus and Xanadu mainly, btu I had to do with Xanadu..... but if the option were able, I'd probably keep switching my votes abck and forth.

I am really not a fan of live stuff, but I really like the version of cygnus x-1 on the black forest 1979 hemispheres bootleg. I've been hearing it played on rush radio many times and the more I hear it, the more I like it. I find it even a hell of a lot better than the studio version on A Farewell To Kings album. It seems to have more atmosphere live than studio. What do you think? Is it just me or do you feel the same way?

Xanadu all the way.

I really very much love the lyrics to Madrigal, but I think the instrumentals sound really weird.

Without a doubt, Cygnus X-1.  That song alone inspired me to write a concept album about comsic phenomena.  1022.gif
