Rush - Favorite Non-Retrospective (Best Of) Songs

Rush fans are out there! Inspired by the recent hate aired by the FX TV series "The Bridge", what are you favorite Rush songs. But your favorite songs not captured on their 3 Retrospective (Best Of) releases. Mine - in release order:

What You're Doing - Even if it is only a Zeppelin rip-off
Beneath, Between And Behind - Great live
The Fountain Of Lamneth- Like much of this more than the song 2112
Cygnus X-1 - Another that is better than parts of 2112
Circumstances - Probably would have been on the Retrospective if there was more room
Jacob's Ladder - Great instrumental parts
Natural Science - In my top five Rush songs ever. So glad they finally started doing it live there for awhile.
Witchhunt - See above. Best song on the CD.
Chemistry - Odd song, but I like it.
Afterimage - Another one that took a long time to make the live sets
Territories - Awesome song, great lyrics - A preview of what would come on later albums(less keyboards)
Presto - A little poppy, but I like it.
Where's My Thing? - Almost as good as YYZ
Cut To The Chase - Great guitar
Virtuality - Great live
Secret Touch - Remixed version of course
Malignant Narcissism - Really should do more instrumentals. Geddy voice haters, that's your cue...

I don't know anything about "The Bridge" and I don't know what is on the Retrospective releases. I do love Rush though

Great ones. Two of those were on the Chronicles release, which many find to be the better collection given the focus on earlier material.
