Love Red Tide.

Despite my fondness for the rest of Presto, I don't listen to Red Tide or Superconductor.  Dunno why, maybe I should try going back to them.

Available Light! Hooray for third place!

Tough choice. I had to go with Available Light, but Chain Lightning, Red Tide, and The Pass are definitely up there too for me.

Available light for sure. I'd say Hand Over Fist comes very close though. I'm glad those two tracks are right next to eachother  laugh.gif

Anagram, I love some odd tunes, compared to most people here.  (It's all good though).

This may be my least favorite album.

I'll say "Presto" by virtue of the fact they play it on the TM tour, and it was pretty good live and on the boots I have.

This was a tough one.

On one hand, I loved Presto at the Time Machine tour. I was waving my invisible magic wand every time Geddy sang those lyrics. I would say it is one of my favorite lesser known Rush songs.

On the other hand, The Pass is the only Rush song that has evoked an emotional response for me. It is mainly due to the theme- but also the time period when the video was done.

So I went with The Pass.

Definitely "The Pass." No more needs to be said. biggrin.gif

To know why so many love this song, all you need to do is listen to it. I am moved to tears every single time. heart.gif

Rush cites this as one of their personal favorites and I can see why. And I believe that they should bring this song back to their live shows. If I am not mistaken, the last time they played it was on the Vapor Trails tour. It is far too amazing to ignore. cool.gif
