What would any TRF afternoon be without a new Zumbi poll?  :laughing guy: I'd join you Zumbi, but I am fresh out of poll material.  No weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth now everyone!  :cool: ;) ;)

Anyway, I love them both, but I have to go with Limelight.

Personally, this might be the most difficult choice yet. Both are in my top five Rush songs of all-time. I think I have to go with "Limelight", to my ears it sounds "more perfect."

This one's really tough. I really love the solo and end of Freewill, but overall I think Limelight is the more cleverly crafted song. Have to go with Limelight.

Both are some of my favorite Rush songs but I'll go with Freewill. I simply like the guitar work too much.

love both but I think Limelight is the most perfect Rush song ever made.  The bass and drums and guitar are perfect...the guitar solo is perfect...the lyrics are amazing....Geddy's vocals are perfect.... there is zero flaw in this song.  Flawless lyrics, music, guitar solo, vocals.

Both are wonderful, but Limelight is my all time favorite. I love Alex's guitar playing on it and his solo.  The opening riff goes through my head at odd times and always cheers me up for some reason (duh, because it's Rush!)

Yeah...I will choose Freewill as well.  A little more edgy break.

Both are great tracks.
