Music of 'Rush'
This was my music listening of late last night... 'Rush' - a band that started out in the early 70s and is still going strong !
They are: Lead guitarist and vocalist Geddy Lee (born with the name Gary Lee Weinrib) is joined by Neil Peart on drums and Alex Lifeson on guitar and backup vocals. All three members of the band call Canada home.
They are currently on tour to promote their newest album, 'Snakes and Arrows.' I'd love to see them but don't expect to!
Got into a discussion with a friend last night about Rush and decided to look up some videos.
I had little experience (or exposure) with the music of Rush. I had bought one CD-a greatest hits- a while back... Of course, their biggest hits are on this - or most of them!
Well, I really am not sure about how many hits these guys have had- but almost all the songs on my CD can be found on Youtube vids!
Here is one I liked a lot~ take a look!
~~~some of the lyrics of this song~~~
Words by Neil pea rt, music by Geddy lee and Alex lifeson
There are those who think that life
Has nothing left to chance
With a host of holy horrors
To direct our aimless dance
A planet of playthings
We dance on the strings
Of powers we cannot perceive
The stars aren't aligned ---
Or the gods are malign
Blame is better to give than receive
You can choose a ready guide
In some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide
You still have made a choice.....
Also this....(not on my CD ...wish it was!)
Nothing like Rock music to get rid of a headache!
lol- after some hours of watching these videos I found my headache had vanished and I slept like a baby when I finally settled down to sleep...past 1:30 AM!
Skeptics might argue that it was just the stopping of the loud music
( eased the headache and my sheer exhaustion of the long day) that gave me my restful sleep!
It was the music that relaxed me and prepared me for the rest! IMHO!
