I'm pretty sure you already know my favorite. I've always had a love for Witch Hunt despite the fact that Rush has so many other amazing songs. I guess I was completely bewitched (no pun intended) by the way the pre-chorus riff just explodes into those big, heavenly 80s synths and my personal connection to the poignant lyrics.

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.

The Camera Eye has grown on me as well! Its testament to the greatness of this album that it isn't my favourite...that title belongs too...

Either Red Barchetta, Limelight, or Witch Hunt...gggrrr I cabnot choose...

...will go for...Red Barchetta...

Witch Hunt. That is perhaps my favortie RUSH song. I can't put my finger on it. I'm not very descriptive. I can say the lyrics are excellent and I love the use of the cowbell.

Personally, the best part of the song is the transition from the pre-chorus to the chorus, it's like a thousand orgasms at once.

Still YYZ. Still surprised it's not higher than Camera Eye and Limelight. But oh well.

Red Barchetta just barely beats out TCE.

Side 1 has to be the perfect lp side of music. Nor a note wasted.

Another tough one.  Personally, I picked Red Barchetta.  I love the imagery.

But, I would have to argue that Tom Sawyer is the best song.  I know we're all sick of TS, but if it were not for the success of that song on that album, we might not be celebrating 40+ years of Rush.  To most non-Rush geeks, excluding most on TRF, that song is synonymous with the band.

I couldn't decide, so I just closed my eyes and picked one, but I couldn't force myself to just pick randomly.

I spent a good ten minutes contemplating this until I remembered I have a lot of homework (I'm probably the youngest member on this forum) and I picked Red Barchetta.

We have some pretty young people here so you're not alone. Good choice, btw.  :)
