A Farewell to Kings - Xanadu

Permanent Waves - The Spirit of Radio

Tom Sawyer is quite overrated in my opinion. Good lyrics, but there are songs I prefer on Moving Pictures over that song (everything but Limelight actually). Permanent Waves was my toughest choice, as I love both Spirit of Radio and Natural Science equally. Fly by Night was my easiest choice.

Rush - Here Again: a surprisingly successful attempt at the blues
Fly By Night - title track: just edges out By-Tor for the supremely tasteful guitar work
Caress of Steel - The Fountain of Lamneth: it's really 6 songs stuck together into a suite, and if I had to pick one of them it would be No One at the Bridge; Geddy's voice is amazing on that one.
2112 - title track: just so emotionally raw and poignant
A Farewell to Kings - Xanadu: one of their best 70's tracks, with some simple but profound lyrics
Hemispheres - title track: compositionally one of their strongest songs ever
Permanent Waves - Freewill: stupid lyrics but builds up to a brilliant climax in such an incredible fashion that I can't not pick it.  I would go for Natural Science, though, if the version on the album had sounded like the Different Stages rendition
Moving Pictures - YYZ: high-energy, tight, and intricate
Signals - Chemistry: Alex absolutely rips it up
Grace Under Pressure - Distant Early Warning: can barely decide between that and Red Sector A, but DEW wins because it just might be the definitive Rush song.

Oh DEW is definitely worth mentioning, and I agree that Natural Science is a gem from Different stages but not so much on the studio version

I love both versions, but the arrangement on the live version is far superior, and the full sound and energy behind it elevate it far above the comparatively dry studio version.  It's actually a very harmonically and melodically simple song, so the extra "oomph" on the live version helps to bulk it up a bit.

Nice poll ACR!!!!!
 
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

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

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"
