In your opinion which song is undeservedly among most popular and praised Rush songs?
OVERRATED doesn't mean that you think that song is weak or you don't like it of course. 

My choice: Red Barchetta. Cygnus Hemispheres is runner-up.

Sawyer's Red Ladder.
"I'm spacing out. I see silences between the leaves."- lyric from the song Chimacum Rain by Linda Parhecs, who at seventy still claims to never have taken a single drug in her life.

"The Pass," because some folks put it in the same category as "Tom Sawyer."

If I ever hear Tom Sawyer again, I'll f**king loose it Angry

There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

Most overrated among what group of people?
On the radio Tom Sawyer maybe. I guess.
Among people who haven't dug that deep in their discography, 2112 maybe, posssibly.
According to people who don't like the results of a poll, Red Barchetta maybe. At a guess.

"I Think I'm Going Bald"
Man everybody and their mother loves that song to death but for some  reason I just can't hear the magic. I think I'm going deaf or something.

"In the Mood"
All those girls in the crowd swooning over Geddy's come-ons. I can't handle it!

When I was a teen musician, it would've been YYZ, the ultimate "Rush are God" number for us wannabe heavy rock stars.

Amongst Rush fans, I'd say "Losing It"; A lot of fans seem to give that tune high praise, and although it was cool to see it performed live on the last tour, I prefer my Rush on the heavier side.

Those work for me ....but then I'm not a big Rush fan in general.

I hear you, but songs like "Losing It" demonstrate Rush isn't a one-trick nor two-trick pony. Wink
