"Time Stand Still" is a single from the progressive band Rush that was featured on their 1987 album Hold Your Fire.[1] The single charted #3 on the U.S. mainstream rock charts. Aimee Mann's vocals are briefly featured in each chorus, marking Rush's first collaboration with another singer.[2] A music video for the song was directed by Zbigniew Rybczyński. The song was later included on the band's 1989 live album A Show of Hands. Aimee Mann was also featured in the video.[3]

Released as a single in 1987 credited to "Rush (featuring Aimee Mann)", "Time Stand Still" was also a minor hit single in the United Kingdom, peaking at #41 in the U.K. Singles Chart.

The song has been covered by Canadian female singer, Nelly Furtado, in October 2010 as part of the soundtrack of the film "Score: A Hockey Musical". The song was played at the Erie County Fairgrounds, Hamburg on October 8, 2011. Time Stand Still was a staple in Rush's live show after its release, being performed on the Hold Your Fire, Presto, Roll the Bones and Counterparts tour before being retired. The band brought the song out of retirement recently, and played it during each show on Rush's 2010-2011 Time Machine Tour.
