Cygnus x-1....because it's instrumental and we don't have to deal with the screaming hysterics of the lyrics.
Much better as an instrumental, I think.

Really? Wow.
Yeah.  The vocals and storyline never did it for me, to be honest.  But the music is amazing!

I'm just surprised because it's like second favorite song ever from them after Xanadu. I think it's perfect. :)

It would be easier quoting some old gems, but in the first set I absolutely loved Distant Early Warning.

I have a greater appreciation of Xanadu, great gal, I met her in Vegas.

OH, THE SONG....Always thought the song kicked ass

:ebert:

He definitely appreciated me more after he heard the guy sitting right behind us mention how much he paid for his ticket. :o
Did you get the deal of a lifetime or what, DS? ;)
Deal of a lifetime indeed!!
And great company for sure!

Well I was lucky to get front row in front of Alex this tour(first time closer than 10 rows), I have been a Geddy and bass fan since the beginning of time, but man seeing Alex play right in front of me really opened my eyes to the the amazing talent, more than ever, wow watching the fingers fly amazing, and also had a good view of Neil, wow. Upped my appreciation of all their talent one thousand fold.

Song wise
Camera Eye
Liked Cygnus without the lyrics(and I am a big lyric fan)
2112, I know I know they play this live alot, but being so close was amazing to watch live
Losing It of course, it was already a favorite but so happy I got to see it live it had to make the list.
Many of the other songs I already loved the studio version and was happy to see live or have already seen live and enjoyed.

Roll the Bones finally didn't make my junk turtle. It was always a good song and I always loved the music, but that abortion in the middle just blaeachhhhh!!!!!!!
They kinda poked fun at it and had fun with it and that was awesome to me.

This is tough for me.  Usually, there is a song or two each tour that I'm like "Huh.  How'd I miss that one?"  For instance, on the VT tour, it was Between Sun & Moon and Bravado.  But this time around, the song choices were mostly so right up my alley, I already appreciate them plenty.

There is RTB, but that's more about the video than any change in my appreciation of the music.  Animate I wasn't wild about, and I'm still not wild about it.

So, no, I guess this tour really didn't change my appreciation for any of the songs.

Did they really do that?  That must have been magnificent!  That's a moment that should be captured on film and included in the official R40 DVD!

Everyone was singing around me at my shows too. Pretty much the entire second set.

Thinking again at the quastion asked, I could easily answer "all of them, including the ones they haven't played in this tour!"
