As I've been going through the list of songs on that mix tape, I began to wonder just how bad my taste was in the 80's - cheese, cheese, and more cheese - but then, redemption in the form of Rush. Yes, they've got big hair, they're wearing weird clothes, but they actually look like they're making music, not just prancing in front of the cameras with instruments:
I genuinely like this song - not only is the music complex and interesting, but the lyrics really spoke to me back in high school, and still ring true today. *sigh* I suppose there won't be any other songs like this on the tape, so next week - back to the cheese... I can't wait.
