Should Have Been.

It would be fascinating to know what processes bands go through when deciding to release singles.  Rush's 1990 album Presto produced 3 singles: "Show Don't Tell," the opening cut, "The Pass," and "Superconductor."  But if I'd had a say in the process, I would have tried to convince them to release "Available Light," the album's final track.

I really think this track could have been a hit.  For that matter it's a Rush tune that might actually do someone quite well if they covered it.  Unfortunately a hamfisted cover of "Tom Sawyer" is much more likely to be in some artist's plans.
