A great and underrated song in their catalog.

No words can describe how stupid that lyric is. I think just that one lyric shows why Rush can't and shouldn't rap.
Why? It's a synonym to the word "Ass". It's supposed to be a jokey intelligent rap, Geddy doing it via a vocoder, rather than having a guest rapper...
 
And it contains the wonderful lyrics:
 
"A night has a thousand saxophones".

This is the period where Rush definitely slipped a lot for me, but still delivered some great songs rather than great albums...

Kid Gloves
Between the Wheels
The Big Money
Territories
Half the World
The Color of Right
Carve Away the Stone

...and my fave song from '84 -> '96

ahhhh...  Raff and my theme song...

Ghost of a Chance.. 

for our story was a miracle, in addition to a fairy tale and something out of a goddmaned Lifetime movie

tall tales my ass..  that has been my life.  Nothing normal....  the stuff of others dreams, fantasies, as well as cheap novels and cable movies.

and we celebrate our 10 year anniversery in December Heart.. how times flies

From this time I really love Counterparts, and like the Test for Echo and Roll the Bones. The rest is not for me. Top songs:

1. Between Sun & Moon (!!! probably the best composition of canadians)
2. Animate
3. Test for Echo
4. Stick it Out
5. Neurotica
6. Half the World
7. Roll the Bones
8. Cut to the Chase
9. Leave that Thing Alone
10. Ghost of a Chance

No songs, unless 'Grace Under Pressure' is included (my stopping point with the band). Then, in that case, the snappy fun 4th song, which I can't remember the name at the moment. "Suspicious looking stranger..." Enemy Within?
