I love this song. This song tells us that instead of doing what we should do, we are in a world where nothing is fair. The bass and guitar in this song fit perfectly together and as always Neil Peart is amazing. I heard this song recently and it instantly became my favourite Rush song. If there is anything close to greatness it is Rush and this song!
Truly amazing one. Can't believe its down so low at 19. Jeez, who made tom sawyer rank one! This is such a splendid song, it deserves a lot more than rank 19.Listen to sample
This song is simply amazing, I love the drums. I only discovered Rush when rockband 1 came out and can't believe how many awesome songs they have. Rock on!
Let 'em eat cake... Brilliant lyrics, brilliant licks, genius drumming... The last seconds on this song are incredible. Short, sweet, and incredible.
This song is by far my favorite. The guitar work, the drum runs, the unique chord progressions, the power of the music. There are better radio songs I'm sure, but this song is Rush to me.More comments about Bastille DayListen to sample
The subject matter is so unique and powerful, this song stands above any other, by Rush or any other band for that matter. Tr
This song gives me chills. Can't believe nobody put this one down.
I wonder if anyone knows that this song is about the Holocaust? Both of Geddy Lee's parents were Holocaust survivors.

I feel if more people listened to this song they'd take back their vote
i have heard almost every song on this list and this is my favorite. Geddy lee singing at his best. Powerful lyrics. Fast bass and guitar. Typical awesome rush musicians at work right here

Caravan is fourth on my list because of the fact that it's one of the better Clockwork Angels songs. It has a killer bass line, not to mention at about halfway through there is a heck of a solo that is played.
This song includes a priceless riff and combines hard rock with prog. I would recommend it. One of rush's better new songs. If you listen you will also note that geddy has some great bass.Listen to sample
This song is a real sleeper. It came out in 1981 and there it sat all this time, until finally its masterpiece was discovered. A signature Rush long playing song, with lyrics and meaning, without overblown solos. A true composition.
This song is epic! How can it be ignored!
This song has so many cool time changes, and Neil's drumming is crazy in the London section of the song. Its sublime. Its a mellow song but at the same time a good rocker!Listen to sample
This song is incredible! Their best 80's song, the feel is so dark and mysterious and not like any other Rush song. By far one of Alex's best solos, personally my favorite of his.Listen to sample
Watch this song live at the S&A tour to see why
Easily the best S&A song, top 10 all time for sureListen to sample
I must be odd, but this should be here somewhere... Or am I the only one who digs this song?
This is a great song guys! Awesome lyrics and a good progression! Please vote... This should be at least in the top 15!
In my opinion its one of their relatively newer songs (1991 I think? ) that sounds like something from a decade earlier. Strong lyrics and great instrumentals as always..More comments about Dreamline Listen to sample
Nothing can compare with the genius of By-Tor and the Snow Dog. NO Rush set would be complete without it. I would expect a full refund if I attended a Rush concert and didn't get to hear it at least once!Listen to sample
Fantastic short little rocker. Could be many other bands best song, but it made the list so I'm happy.Listen to sample
Listen to the structure of the song... Really well produced with subtle rhythm changes in between. By far the best Rush song post y2k
Modern classic - exactly the sort of song that keeps Rush relevant.

I can not believe how unknown this song is. How can it not be on the list. This is just as good as 2112. Just Listen to it if you don't know it
So, so underrated. Have to limit myself to 1 listen a month or I'd just get addicted... It happened once...
Tom Sawyer #1? Really? It's a good song but not anywhere as good as the fountain. The Fountain of Lamneth isn't Rush's best work for sure, but I'd think a song like this would be at least in the top 20... lyrical genius and pretty cool musical parts.Listen to sample
That is my personal favorite, fantastic song. But seriously, all the songs that are on the top ten right now, are not even in my top 20 rush songs, the real fans are probably not voting because I can't imagine a real Rush fan voting for Tom Sawyer as their best song.Listen to sample
This song is awesome! The synthesizer is great and alexs crunching guitar riffs along with those harmonics make this song very fun to listen too.. SHould be way higher than 66..!Listen to sample
I think lessons should be in the top25 songs because it has this really cheery acoustic riff to it. It has a cool bass line. How good an it get? A good song, one of my favorite songs to listen to in car rides.Listen to sample
not a song, but the mere prove of neil peart greatnessListen to sample
I came across this song while I was young, and I saw the music video... Somehow I knew it was about losing someone and missing them. Red Sector A seems unique to many because Geddy doesn't play bass in it... Just keyboard. Well that is the same with this song. The words speak to me, and Alex's little solo is insane when you see its just a couple different chords.

Give this one a listen, trust me, you'll love it.

This song has An AWESOME BASS RIFF! It is so solid and full sounding! Please vote for this
Great Rocking Rush song, with great meaning... Nothing unusual from Rush. Can't believe it is so low! Take a listen!Listen to sample
Pure Art. Pure Emotion. Pure Soul.
Not an overly popular Rush song, but it has a couple truly amazing factors. 1. A soft, acoustic song. It's a nice change because Rush has few of these. 2. The fantasy element seen in La Villa Strangiato and By-Tor and the Snow Dog originated here. 3. It's one of the most beautiful pieces written by Neil Peart. Seriously, the imagery and image he paints with the writing is phenomenal.Listen to sample
The Body Electric is similar to Afterimage... I saw the music video when I was a kid and it spoke to me. It has been one of my favorites ever since.
This is an interesting song. Can't say it is my favourite Rush song, but Neil's drumming at the start of this song draws me in every time. Very mechanical and well suited to the subject matter.Listen to sample
This song just is so intense and attractive. If you know a song where there is a part you never want to end the whole song is that moment. Intense rock. Cowbell rock. Addictive vocals that really suit this tone of rock, ya man!
In the mood just has this groove that catches me with amazement every time I hear it. The cowbell just revves up the intensity. Love the guitar solo too.
In the mood has an amazing guitar riff and is a iconic example of rush in their early days. I would put it in the top 50 at least because it is a song where their musical talent peeks out here and there...More comments about In the MoodListen to sample
This song should at least be higher up in the list. :/
This song's constant transitions are mindblowing. The whole signals album is a masterpiece and will be celebrated forever by me and hopefully others.

This song is alike Caravan.. It is one of the better songs on Clockwork Angels, but this song... Seems like the transition and story from old Rush to new Rush. Neil's drumming is so simple... Yet elegant. Alex's guitar shifts from a rock sound to a classical sound. Geddy's singing has so much meaning in it. Clockwork Angels is in my top 10.
