Losing it
Thirty years ago, how the words would flow
With passion and precision
But now his mind is dark and dulled
By sickness and indecision

And he stares out the kitchen door
Where the sun will rise no more...

hey im new here. this is my first post on this forum. i saw this topic and figured i had to at least give my favorite from one of the albums. so i chose my favorite album signals.

All of the songs as a whole are what make this album great, but the way the album ends with Countdown is so powerful i couldnt help but vote for it.

This one hurt to vote on.  I changed selections so many times it made my head spin.  I wonder if I'll agree with my choice when I look back to it some time in the future.  But for this moment, I went with (I typed this before I actually voted and I'm still changing my mind) DAMN!!!!

Ok - The Analog Kid.  With HUGE apologies to Subdivisions, Digital Man, and The Weapon.

I've been a member here since October, '04 and I'm just doing this now cause I truly find it terribly difficult to choose one.  Rush is not a "filler" band to me.  They create so many amazing songs - it's criminal to ask us to choose one.

Damn you, RR.   laugh.gif

My favorite album.  Very hard to chose any one song.

But I went with Analog Kid.  It's like Alex said, "Ged, I know you're having a blast over there with your new keyboard toys but you have to let me have some fun on at least *one* song!"

I'd have to go with The Weapon. The chord progressions, the lyrics and especially the recap at the end of the instrumental section give me goosebumps every time.

(I guess that was a little wordy...I can't help it, I'm a music student  tongue.gif )

Subdivisions is my favorite Rush song EVER. I can't watch the video without getting chills, and hearing it never grows old.... I have listened to this song more than any other Rush song, and it still remains my favorite smile.gif

  fists crying.gif [FONT=Geneva][SIZE=7][COLOR=red] I'm gonna be in a coma after all these polls. this LP is full of faves but the most meaningful for me is losing it. Some are born to move the world , to live their fantasy. but most of us just dream of things we'd like to be . sadder still to watch it die and never to have known it. for you the blind who once could see, the bell tolls for thee!

I have this pinned up on the wall of my Drumming school. words to live by for sure.....and the violin solo is amazing!

Now that's a surprize - I'm the ninth person to have voted for Chemistry.
Chemistry is my favorite Rush song.
On the one hand it makes me a little sad because I couldn't handle the courses in chemistry at Hebrew U my freshman year and ended up changing majors. But this song still represents the essence of my being and it is just a beautiful song in its mysteriousness and excitement.
Seems to me it's chemistry...
That's all it is. Atoms, electrons, protons, neutrons, the Periodic Table of Elements...
Everything around us is chemistry.
Everything within us chemistry too.
And everything between us chemistry.
