Limelight. For sure. I love the chorus vocals and I love the China cymbal hit in the middle of the chorus. Its always gave me chills.

Something about Vital Signs just connects with me...It goes without saying that the whole album is fantastic though.

"The Camera Eye".  Wicked drums, and SLICKMONO mentioned the incredible guitar solo.  That whole guitar solo SECTION is incredible by all three guys.

Plus, how can you not love a tune where Geddy belches and then exclaims "Oh my gosh!!"  (at 8:54 :) )

It has to be Limelight. I bought Moving Pictures on a whim and this was the song that got me hooked all the way back in the day all those years ago.

Well, 2011 anyway!

Close second would have to be Witch Hunt. Their is something so very haunting about this song words cannot describe!

Really between YYZ and Red Barchetta for me the former a longstanding favorite and a delight to play on guitar hero, the latter a critically acclaimed (by my dad) semi-epic (ish) with the best false guitar notes in any Rush song ever...I'll go with one of my first Rush experiences.

I went with YYZ but every song is fantastic; it's almost like a 'Greatest Hits' album.

I couldn't decide...until I realized, "HEY! My favorite song is there!"

So I chose YYZ

I voted Red Barchetta due to the imagery but all of the songs are good.

Changed my vote to Witch Hunt. I think it is just so evocative of the darkness it seeks to describe.

But Limelight is still my favourite. I just think it is not exactly desperate for more votes...

Witch Hunt is so vivid and is just pouring with emotion. Struggle between that or Limelight.

I'm changing my vote to the Camera Eye. I've been listening to it a lot recently and I've realised that a great song. It's definitely one of my favourites.
