Which Rush song is more beloved by you?

For me Freewill all the way, because Lifeson's guitar work and Geddy's bass work stand out much more in this song than RB.

Once again I vote for Red Barchetta.

Two of the best songs from their last great era, that pleasant rebound from Hemispheres.  Slight edge to Freewill.

Now this actually is a tough choice. Both great hard rock numbers. I think I'll go with Freewill in the end, though.

I'll go for Freewill, mainly for that amazing instrumental section.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Two votes in a row from me for Red Barchetta.  Not that Spirit of Radio isn't great too.

Freewill is great, but any song about driving fast gets my vote.

Playing Red Barchetta whilst lapping Croft racing circuit in a 4.5l sports car is hard to beat.
A TVR is not a car. It's a way of life.

If driving fast in a cool car that you found in a barn, down some mountainside roads is OVERRATED or MEDIOCRE, then you my friend enjoy your walk in the park feeding the birds LOL

I bet none of Rush guys was a good driver of fast sports cars. So I don't get why then they made a song about fast car.

I choose Freewill.

One of Lifeson's best solos in that track.

Went with Barchetta this time but honestly, this is a toss up. Tomorrow I could just as easily go for Freewill
