This may sound corny but my favourite song is Spirit of Radio
I have learned to play it and it really is feast to play this song on the bass...

It isn't just the music but also the lyrics, they totally rule.

So did I.  Natural Science is just an amazing song though.  It's one that I never get tired of hearing.

Natural Science. The guitar and bass riff about 2:20 into the song is probably my favorite in any Rush song.

Hey everyone, im pretty new here. this is probably my favorite Rush album, maybe tied with Signals. But the best song in my opinion on PW is definently Jacob's Ladder. If not for any other reason, the time signatures will mess with your mind!!!! fists crying.gif

The guitar solo alone - superb  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

Tough to choose between The Spirit Of Radio and Freewill.

But The Spirit Of Radio comes out in the end.

Flawless album.  Not a bad note from start to end.  Natural Science takes it though.  Freewill's solo section is a close second.   2.gif

Nothing more to add here.  Natural Science (especially over the past year or so) has become solidified as one of my all time favorite Rush songs.  It just gets better and better and better to listen to.

This is really hard to choose the best song. It's a toss up between The Spirit of Radio, Jacob's Ladder, Free Will, & Natural Science. confused13.gif
