Driving home today when the Overture from Rush's 2112 came on the radio (yes, I still listen to the radio. The Big Brown Bomber truck is not the type to host new fangled technology). I was transported in time and found myself singing, badly, with the entire thing.
Upon my return home, I cranked it on Yahoo Jukebox.
Neil Peart my well be one of the best drummers ever.
In all of history.
In the entire universe.
But what stands out the most is Geddy Lee's vocals. They're almost painful. When I was a little goofy girl listening to this through the walls from my brothers room, the song Tears made me cry little girl tears.
My attempts to sing with Geddy as I drove led me to a sore throat and great respect. And that man has been known to sport a helluva mullet.
