whatever track was played in Rio was the best song off that album.

If more than one songs from the album was played in Rio, the song that was played last was the best.

The list:

"Working Man"
"By-Tor & the Snow Dog
"2112
"Cygnus X-1 Book I: The Voyage"
"La Villa Strangiato (An Exercise in Self-Indulgence)"
"The Spirit of Radio"
"Limelight"
"New World Man"
"Red Sector A"

Working Man (Finding My Way would be second. Seems a little like an early version of Spirit of Radio with that intro riff.)
By-Tor and the Snow Dog
The Necromancer
That's a silly question. LOL
Cygnus X-1
Hemispheres
Natural Science
Red Barchetta
The Analog Kid

Rush ~ Working Man = Flat out killer rock song, great live too!
Fly By Night ~ By Tor = the epics begin
Caress ~ Lakeside Park = love the melody
2112 ~ 2112 = undeniably one of the best side long epics ever!
AFTK ~ Xanadu = probably in my top 3 Rush songs
Hemispheres ~ Cygnus X-1 Book II = just cool playing and lyrics
PW ~ Natural Science = I will never tire of hearing this song
MP ~ The Camera Eye = just a great song, one of the best live too!
Signals ~ The Weapon = all trilogy songs are excellent
GUP ~ Between the Wheels = fast and love the drum lines
 

Great song choices - you made me listen to Between the Wheels again!Star
