Red Barchetta.
While I love Xanadu,Hemispheres,Natural Science,Free will and all the later day stuff like Presto,Nobody's Hero,Earthshine, RB holds a balance between the two main eras.I feel there is a distinct camp that feel that Moving Pictures is the last great Rush album and its downhill from there.Back to subject,i am a person to listen to music first, lyrics later,but this is one song which got me in with both.And the music builds with the lyrics.I remember I first had Moving Pictures on cassette and I had an Australian Valiant Charger E38(a very fast muscle car)and gunning it when Alex's solo came on through my mega car stereo.And then 'a gleaming alloy air car came into view.And yes I was sober but high on the music.Along with Ritchie Blackmores Rainbow Rising those tapes lived in my car stereo in the early eighties.

"Time Stands Still" isn't just my favorite Rush song, it might be my favorite song period.


I empathise with this, it's a fantastic song. When I heard it live it was magical.

Red Barchetta. Toss up with Xanadu but today I'll say RB. Hard leaving any of the second side of Hemi behind though.

The Spirit of Radio.  It's just the perfect song.

I can also appreciate your choice of Presto...it would be high on my list.

It was Grand Designs, but lately it has been The Enemy Within. Something about reggae-infused Rush just drives me nuts. Vital Signs is another favorite.

Yes this^^^^^^^^^^

It rocks, has great transitions, smart lyrics and always puts my mind back in the arena at a RUSH concert.

These guys have so many amazing songs, but I am going with Xanadu as well. (Surprise, surprise). :)

It just has one of those awesomely epic intros (God, I miss when bands did those lengthy musical intros- everyone starts singing right away on songs nowadays) and I find the music captivating throughout, and I love the story told by the lyrics. That great guitar intro shows up at the end of the song as well, and it's just magnificent. I just always thought of it as the quintessential Rush song that has it all.
