La Villa or Limelight for sure. Went with LVS.

 

Those two are my favorites along with Xanadu, No One At The Bridge, Return Of The Prince, and Presentation.

Three incredible songs, and a very difficult choice. All of the solos are so different stylistically, also.

 

I have to rank them thusly:

 

1. La Villa

2. Freewill (among my favourite Lifeson solos ever)

3. Limelight

I'm with you.

 

The bass in those first two is incredible too.

 

When I was getting into Rush, way back when, I had only heard Permanent Waves and Signals was the new release at the time; I knew nothing of their older stuff. I was partying with a kid who played bass and I asked him if he could play Freewill (the bass lines had just blown me away). He kind of scoffed at me and said I can play La Vila Strangiato. I went "What is La Villa whateveryousaid?" (we were partying, remember, ala 1982-83). I went out the next day to hunt it down and haven't looked back since.

Indeed, the bass playing is just jaw-dropping; fantastic! Again, Freewill contains some of Geddy's finest bass shredding...but La Villa still takes the cake.

The solo is great in La Villa but I think of the song as an entire jam session, whereas the other two are true solos within their respective songs. In which case I have to pick Limelight.

La Villa for me. Because of how that one builds. soft and builds to heaven.

When I say I will choose Freewill, I don't mean that's what I'm voting for. :huh:
