LOL, my vote for "Limelight" tied it with "The Camera Eye" at 215 apiece.

I think "Limelight" is a personal statement from Neil and that is why it is the best song on the album, although my personal favorite is "Witch Hunt," but the question isn't, "What is my favorite song?," it is, "What is the best song?"

The Camera Eye is a seminal achievement. As good as the rest of MP is, this takes the cake.

It's a tie between Red Barchetta and Camera Eye for me. They still give me goosebumps just as they did 30+ years ago.

Camera Eye...it's a song that transports you somewhere...

I have to admit, though, that I truly like every song on the album.

This is impossible to decide. The begining of Tom Sawyer is the coolest synth sound ever, and the synth lead before the solo is classic, but I've heard it 100000 times. I love the story (and the sounds!) of Red Barchetta. I love the rhythms in YYZ. Limelight is one of my favorite solos. The Camera Eye has the awesome OB-X intro and one of Alex's coolest riffs. Witch Hunt is cool too. Vital Signs sounds like GUP, it still fits with the rest of the album, but isn't one of my favorites.

For me it's between Red Barchetta, YYZ, Limelight, and The Camera Eye. I can't vote for just one.

OOPS LEMME TRY THIS AGAIN......

I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR THE SONG "TOM SAYWER" In total analog,it must sound awesome!!

Does anyone know if the 45s of this song were taken from the SAME MASTER as the album?? (If not maybe it wasnt DIGITALLY RECORDED and will sound even better!)
