Open Secrets got my vote. Unfortunately it's the only song I like from HYF.

I chose Mission.  I always thought the Olympics should use this song as it shows its highlights of victories and defeats.  However... and I've seen comments about this elsewhere.... TURN THE PAGE is one of my all-time favorites.  Breaks my heart to see nobody pick it.  I wish I had so I could say I gave it its only vote.

Hold Your Fire, one of my favourite albums.  I love every song on it but I've got to give my vote to Open Secrets (totally arbitrary on this).  The song just sends shivers down my spine and I can really relate to the lyrics.

Actually the whole LP is great.  However, when you get to be my age (46), "Time Stand Still" makes you reflect as well. cool.gif

I'm forced to say that, Hold Your Fire was the worst Rush album.

Prime Mover.  It's not my favorite--that's Time Stand Still--but I think it's probably the best one according to Rush's standards.

I've gotta go with Time Stand Still on this.  I have liked it ever since the first time I heard it.  It's really a beautiful song.  I like the backround lyrics with the woman singing.

Oh, this one is SO hard for me, but I'll go with Prime Mover barely edging Mission, Force Ten, and Time Stand Still. I could really go with any of the four depending on the time, mood, day of week, lunar cycle...well you get the drift.

Mission ... this is one of the most inspirational RUSH songs to me and has always been there for me when I needed it.
