Limelight is one of the first Rush songs I ever heard, and the song that got me wanting to explore more about the band....... for that reason, it will always be one of my favorite songs, and definetely my favorite on this album.

I liked The Camera Eye. A 11 min song. It was the last longest song that Rush ever recorded. I also liked it because it just seemed to hit me more than the other songs. Too bad it wasn't a hit on the radio. It would have done well, I think IMO. 2.gif Rules!

I like Vital Signs because it has a regge beat and tone to it. It just seemed really unique for Rush. I love "Everybody need a soft filter." Just a cool song.

The Camera Eye..it paints a picture of a clean-cut, black & white world..it takes me away to that special place, & if i stay too long, i'd prolly break down & cry  wink.gif

but it really is one of Rush's best songs ever IMO, & i could listen to it for days on end & not get tired of it. smile.gif  2.gif

It's Tom Sawyer for me...I never get tired of hearing it....there's just something about it that kindles something inside me. I love the music and the lyrics, I've always found it fascinating.

It was hard for me to choose a song as well.  This was the first Rush CD my mom ever bought me.  I chose Vital Songs.  It's kind of mysterious and dark.  I relate to mood swings and being different.

YYZ or Tom Sawyer, but I had to choose 1 so YYZ because I am a drummer and YYZ is definately more fun

Limelight, because it was one of the first  2.gif songs I ever heard. But this is my all-time favorite album, so it was a difficult choice.

Ya me too. I like The Camera Eye because I love long songs. They take a while to listen to where as the short ones end too fast to fully enjoy them.
