Limelight. It is neck to neck with Freewill for my favorite Rush song period.

The Camera Eye
Grim faced and forbidding,there faces closed tight, an angular mass of New Yorkers.pacing in rythem, race the oncoming night,they chase through the streets of Manhatten.head first humanity pause at a light then flow through the streets of the city

Vital Signs! Awesome synths, really moving. And then Limelight, Witch Hunt, The Camera Eye, Red Barchetta, YYZ, and then Tom Sawyer.

One of Rush's best songs; The Camera Eye. Red Barchetta would be a close second

I know its not cool for a Rush fan to choose it, I know its overplayed, I know its predictable but if it wasn't for Tom Sawyer, I wouldn't be a Rush fan. So there. :-)

2-YYZ
3-Limelight
4-Red Barchetta
5-Witch Hunt
6-Vital Signs
7-The Camera Eye

But its all so so close.

Same. Tom Sawyer is what got me interested, then TSOR is what really pulled me in.

I don't know why, but Tom Sawyer has never been one of my favs....I'm not saying it's a bad song, but if I was going to rank my favorite Rush songs, TS would probably be about 60. I never understood how it came to be their "most famous" song. IMO, their signature song should be Limelight, Freewill or TSOR. That being said, I'm glad Red Barchetta is winning, it's one of my all time favorites, and no matter how many times I hear it, I never get tired of it. But I had to vote for VS, my favorite Rush song as of right now....but check back in a few weeks.
