Your RUSH Profile

Post by EndlesslyRocking » Tue Apr 13, 2004 10:43 am

I know lists are frequently done on fan sites, but I was hoping you would help out us newbies, and give us an idea of your personal RUSH profile. What I'm asking is fairly straightforward:

What are your top 5 RUSH albums?

What are your top 10 RUSH songs?

I'll start:

What are your top 5 RUSH albums?
Permanent Waves
Moving Pictures
Power Windows
Counterparts
Vapor Trails


What are your top 10 RUSH songs?
Natural Science
Limelight
The Trees
Subdivisions
Manhattan Project
Distant Early Warning
The Big Money
Prime Mover
Animate
Ceiling Unlimited
