You know the drill: choose one song from each album that received little airplay, isn't appreciated as much as it should, or even isn't played live as much as it should be.

Here's my list:

Rush: Here Again
Fly By Night: Beneath, Between, and Behind
Caress of Steel: Fountain of Lamneth
2112: The Twilight Zone
A Farewell To Kings: Cinderella Man
Hemispheres: Circumstances
Permanent Waves: Natural Science
Moving Pictures: (Are any of them underrated?) Witch Hunt
Signals: Losing It
Grace Under Pressure: The Enemy Within
Power Windows: Emotion Detector
Hold Your Fire: Lock and Key
Presto: Superconductor
Roll the Bones: Neurotica
Counterparts: Cold Fire
Test For Echo: Totem
Vapor Trails: Freeze
Snakes and Arrows: The Way the Wind Blows
Clockwork Angels: The Wreckers

Sorry guys and gals.  This is a Rush fan site.  You are unlikely to find anyone who is going to think you are a "True Rush Fan," because you mention Madrigal or Neurotica.
