Three catchy and awesome songs.

The jolly and enrousing

The touching and melancholic

Tom Sawyer of these three. I hugely love Subdivisions, but it's because of the overall tune and the lyrics. I don't hear much of interest to me instrumentally. Spirit of Radio just doesn't work for me.

Wow, that's tough. If you had chosen Freewill instead of SoR, it would have been easier for me.

Tom Sawyer.  Not just one of my fave Alex solos (not to mention the great Neil drum breaks and Geddy's synth work), but the whole song just jumps from the speakers and grabs you by the throat.  Great production, performance, lyrics...this one's the whole package Wink

"Subdivisions" for that Oberheim! But if "Limelight" were in there instead of "Tom Sawyer," this poll would be a lot harder.

Spirit of Radio - way back in the day when I put on my cassette mix tape to drive to work, it was the opening track so I could "Begin the day with a friendly voice ..."

Gotta give it to Tom Sawyer, almost a perfect composition.   TSoR is awesome but very high school, and Subdivisions is a great little tune but just a cut below.

When a young guitarist can play Lifeson's opening riff really well, they know they've arrived.
