Big Grin The RUSH APPRECIATION Thread! Awesome!

Here it is RUSH fans!1!!!1! The place where you can post your favorite RUSH songs, wax poetic about the lyrics, talk about shows you've seen/coming up, you name it!

This is the RUSH APPRECIATION thread. Let's go!!!

I'll start things off with the, while fairly typical, always awesome Spirit of Radio

Rush- Spirit Of The Radio - YouTube

Live versions:

rush spirit of radio live - YouTube

Lyrics
Begin the day with a friendly voice,
A companion unobtrusive
Plays that song that's so elusive
And the magic music makes your morning mood.

Off on your way, hit the open road,
There is magic at your fingers
For the Spirit ever lingers,
Undemanding contact in your happy solitude.

Invisible airwaves crackle with life
Bright antenna bristle with the energy
Emotional feedback on timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond price, almost free

All this machinery making modern music
Can still be open-hearted.
Not so coldly charted, it's really just a question
Of your honesty, yeah, your honesty.

One likes to believe in the freedom of music,
But glittering prizes and endless compromises
Shatter the illusion of integrity.

For the words of the prophets were written on the studio wall,
Concert hall
And echoes with the sounds of salesmen. Of salesmen. Of salesmen.


If you live in a city that doesn't have a single station that'll play this once in a while...well, move.

I have no particular issue with anyone interjecting a U2 nugget here or there, but others might disagree. U2 is always a welcome topic in my books!

After I go seek out the threads this is a joke reference to, I'm going to interject a nugget into your face. And it won't be chicken. I'm thinking denver*.








*thats a basketball team, right?




The sad part is, didn't I include spirit of the radio on a DI list? I legit do like that song.

It's all good. I'm not even a Rush super fan. I appreciate them for what they are, and they have some songs that I really liked from my youth...so it's like, you know, summer time driving up north and listening to some classic rock station out of Buttfuckville, ON...and a classic Rush track comes on..and you rock out for a couple of minutes..then later on remember that album and put it on blast for the memories. That's the extent of my fandom. I've seen them a grand total of 2 times. I liked it, but the crowd absolutely sucked. Bunch of deadbeats compared to a U2 crowd in the pit, but then again, I had doucheseats. They put on a hell of a show though it was almost too long. They had 2 full sets with a break! Crazy.

My fave Rush song is Subdivisions. La Villa Strangiato coming in second. Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures and Signals were a great run of albums.

I'd recommend the DVDs Rush in Rio or R30 (my fave) to anyone who's willing to try a bit of Rush.

That was a pretty fucking crazy crowd in Rio, I can only imagine what it would have been like actually being there. Were you OpenG180?

Yes, i was. As i said, i'm a casual Rush fan at best. But the event was too big to be missed. Rush is like a religion to some folks down here. Rush, Iron Maiden... you can't say a bad word about them to the fans here. It's like saying bad things about Jesus Christ himself.

The show was very energetic, but all shows are like this in Brazil (and Argentina). I really recommend that you europeans and north americans try at least once in your life to come down here to Brazil or Argentina and see how crazy and energetic a rock show can be. I've seem gigs in the USA and Europe and i must say the attitude here is VERY different.

Hmm. There is nothing worse than a lame, or having seats in the pocket of lame (I forget, I credit cori with that phrase or was that someone else), crowd.

I noticed that. The adoration and appreciation was palpable, it leaps off the screen on that DVD.

Seeing U2 in Brazil or perhaps Mexico is on my bucket list, right beside Slane Castle. I always marvel at the DVDs they shot there (official and unofficial) and whenever I meet SA U2 fans in NA I'm equally blown away by the passion they have for U2. Y'all are not afraid to show the love!

I'd say that perhaps Argentina is even more passionate than Brazil, Mexico or Chile. And for a brazilian to say that...

Probably, but Argentina and Chile are considerably more pricey to get to from Canada than Mexico and Rio..at least last I checked

(and believe me, I checked!! )
