Cyngus X-1 for I am a drummer and this is the best to drum to on the album. The beginning is the ultimate. 2nd would be Xanadu definatesy.

 

Any drummers contact me.

this is a particularly tough one, even though the obvious choice for me is xanadu, but a farewell to kings and closer to heart are both SUCH strong songs, that it's impossible to ignore them, even if they don't QUITE match the grandeur of xanadu - closer to the heart will always be a concert classic, and hearing everyone singing it together is an integral part of a rush show...

I've got to cast my vote for A Farewell To Kings. I think it is ironic that it sings about the "farewell to kings", when the lyrics relate to even the present. Just read the lyrics and you can see a connection to a lot of the things going on these days. Often, I think of what future generations will think about what happened in this time. Like what they will think about the United States and how we went to war while half the country agreed with it, and the other half opposed it. I mean, you can still say this line in the year 2005 and have it still mean something:

 

"Can't we find

The minds that made us strong

Can't we learn

To feel what's right and wrong

--

Can't we raise our eyes

And make a start

Can't we find the minds

To lead us closer to the Heart"
