Lot of people I know who like Rush don't ever mention this song... It's a great tune, and the rapping I actually think really adds to the catchiness of the song. And even now, every time I listen to it, the chorus IS IN MY HEAD all day long! It's one of the catchiest songs they've ever written. Period. And funny enough this song was played at my high school prom night... And man oh nan this song was wonderful to dance to!

This Song Is Amazing love it the singing drums guitar and bass are amazing great tune if you not heard this song I suggest that you do it's amazing - mneilan

109 The Weapon

Surprised to see it that low. That's a fantastic song, with all the synths and Geddy's interpretation. Shoul be A LOT higher. - Andrevalenca

110 Test for Echo

Hey, I know Test for Echo is not their greatest work. But there is NO WAY... ABSOLUTELY NO WAY... it belongs as the lowest rated tune. To me, that "honour" belongs to Dog Years. Sorry to say Neil, the lyrics in that one are the nadir of your literary efforts! But hell, even the lowest rated Rush tune is still miles better than the vast majority of work of lesser bends!

I went to the very end of the list... and found a tune I have always really liked. Test for Echo is not my favorite Rush song - that goes to La Villa Strangiato - but TFE is among my favorite Rush tunes. The problem? My list of favorite Rush tunes includes LVS, TFE... and about 30 other songs! It doesn't surprise me that you can find a great tune like Test for Echo down at #120. That's what you get when your vault is as full as this great band's.

What is Test for Echo doing at the bottom? It is one of the most intense heavy Rush songs ever and certaintly stands out as one of my top 5 favorite rush songs of the 90's.


111 Double Agent

Great song from the album that brought Rush back!

112 Rivendell

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.

Pure Art. Pure Emotion. Pure Soul.

113 Available Light

Why won't Rush play this song live? Such a fantastic tune! Sooo underrated!

114 Turn the Page

Totally overlooked soaring masterpiece from Hold Your Fire 1987. Awesome.

This is in my top 20...Great song

115 Sweet Miracle

All Rush songs belong in the top ten

116 Losing It

Like so many Rush songs, the lyrics to this song are wonderfully thought provoking; however, Losing It stands apart from the crowd for Ben Mink's phenomenal performance on electric violin and its melancholic melody that will haunt you long after listening. Rush has always inspired me for how well they were able to convey a story through lyrics and music.

One of the darker songs you'll hear from Rush. It took me a couple listens to get into it but it was definitely worth it. One of my personal favorites in the Rush discography.

117 Red Tide
118 Force Ten

This is a good one, why is so far away!

119 Limbo

Why is this at the bottom? This is my second favorite Rush instrumental next to La Villa. I love Geddy's voice in the background, it's just an amazing instrumental if you give it the chance.

INCREDIBLE instrumental! YYZ is great but it's just kind of a show off type of a song. Some of their other instrumentals like La Villa are a bit too complex. Limbo has some killer riffs on bass, and the guitar and drums are best (as always, from Neil). Just listen to this a few times and you'll be hooked.

Definitely should be at least in the top ten. Best song after moving pictures for sure.

Limbo... All day every day.
