Right, your loved ones are being held hostage by nasty wicked persons and you're forced to offer one lyrical segment of Rush as a favourite...so, one section of wisdom/inspiration or else the loved ones will be forced to listen to hip-hop

The things we'd like to be

Sadder still to watch it die
Than never to have known it
For you - the blind who once could see -
The bell tolls for thee...


When we swap instruments during band practise I often bellow these pearls in time to an e-minor punk riff .

Its very difficult to pick just one as there are so many. I think, if any, it would probably be

When life becomes as barren
And as cold as winter skies
There's a beacon in the darkness
In a distant pair of eyes
In vain to search for honour
In vain to search for truth
But these things can still be given
Your love has shown me proof

Makes me think of my wife.

ugh, i could NEVER pick a fave, but for me (and my family members), it'd hafta be from Bravado:

If we burn our wings
Flying too close to the sun
If the moment of glory
Is over before it's begun
If the dream is won -
Though everything is lost
We will pay the price,
But we will not count the cost

When the dust has cleared
And victory denied
A summit too lofty
River a little too wide
If we keep our pride -
Though paradise is lost
We will pay the price,
But we will not count the cost

the lyrics of that song have NO equal! i just love it, & those are most definitely words to live by!

They would have to listen to hip-hop if I didn't? Oh my. And, I am not angry at them desiring to torture them, right?

Well, my first thought was Losing It, but SOMEBODY already took that. hehe Good one, Ogg.

Now I have to go think.

Yep, sooo hard to pick a favourite but you simply have to you know? The Losing It excerpt has been with me for soo long now. I may just upload the gedawful jam featuring the afore mentioned lines (and mygoodself on guitar Shocked ).
I have to admit that I leant on Rush these past four/five weeks big time. No need to explain how inspirational, how lifting the material is but it's good to know that in time of need they're always here, just like you guys .

someone set a bad example
made surrender seem all right
the act of a noble warrior

From the point of conception
To the moment of truth
At the point of surrender
To the burden of proof

From the point of ignition
To the final drive
The point of the journey is not to arrive

Anything can happen...

Don't know if you've heard it, but a recent big hit in the UK, that's still getting heavy radio play, called Dry Your Eyes sums it all up for current music. Its crap as well.

Right to the heart of the matter
Right to the beautiful part
illusions (illusions) are painfully shattered
right where discover starts
in the distant wells of emotion
buried deep in our hearts


all others are also favourite songs weirdly enough., so you folks get out of my head

Hey Slaine', Grrr, my eleven year old son loves 'The Streets' (he even BOUGHT a copy) so I hear it every day .
For the uninitiated it's a kinda garage/rap thing but thoroughly English, clever lyricist at times but alas not for me. I used to turn off 'DYEyes' when it came on the radio.
