Ill tell you all my lies

Hey baby, its a quarter to eight
I feel Im in the mood
Hey baby, the hour is late
I feel Ive got to move

Well, hey now, baby
Dont you talk so fast
Im just tryn to make these good times,
Im tryn to make it last

Evrythings getting hazy
Now honey, whered you go?
I just want to find out, baby
Whered you learn what you know?

Hey baby, its a quarter to eight
I feel Im in the mood
Hey baby, the hour is late
I feel Ive got to move

Well, hey now, baby
Said, I like your style
You really got me, baby
Way down deep inside

Oo, you drive me crazy
Baby, youre the one
I just want to rock-and-roll you woman
Until the night is gone

Hey baby, its a quarter to eight
I feel Im in the mood
Hey baby, the hour is late
I feel Ive got to move
That song doesn't give a general idea of what Rush's lyrics are about whatsoever, since Neil Peart hadn't joined the band yet. ANY Rush fan knows that. The song in question was from their very first album in 1974.

If this is the means you're going to use to "prove" things, you're not going to get very far.

But tribute bands, and also Rush, are the enemies of art.

That's your opinion.

That's your opinion. And my point is regarding that Rush are better musicians than U2 - which is a FACT.

Not true.

Bono's 84-85 mullet kicks Geddy's hands down...

I've seen both bands, while I enjoyed Rush, I was exhilirated by U2...

While Rush has a pretty loyal following and puts on a pretty good show, the U2 show is hands down a far more emotional experience...and the music is not as drawn out and there are no solos by each member to bore us to tears...so I say KISS puts on the better show...

Hey guys, if Moggio writes something, it's a FACT. If anyone else writes something, it's just their opinion and not true.

ANY Rush fan would know that.
