Happy 25th anniversary Power Windows!

Twenty-five years ago today on October 29th, 1985 Rush released their 11th studio album Power Windows. The album marked the band's first collaboration with producer Peter Collins and was recorded at The Manor in England, Air Studios in Montserrat and Sarm East in London in the spring and summer of 1985. It was certified Gold by the RIAA on December 18, 1985 and Platinum on January 27, 1986, and peaked at #10 on the Billboard album charts. The first single off the album was The Big Money which charted at #45 on the US Hot 100 and #4 on the US Mainstream Rock chart. You can read a transcription of the album's tourbook including Neil Peart's Looking Through Power Windows writeup at this link. In celebration of the anniversary, for my next poll I'm asking everyone what their favorite song off the album is. Take the poll and let us know. And fittingly enough, Marathon received the top spot in last week's poll where I'd asked everyone what non-Moving Pictures song was the highlight of the Time Machine Tour setlist (complete results here). Here's the video for The Big Money:
