RUSH - SUBDIVISIONS
Neil Peart is incredible. That’s all I have to say. When I first heard this song on rock radio back in 1981, all I could hear were those crazy drum beats that weren’t doing what they were supposed to do in a mainstream rock song. The guy is all over the place…and he proves why he is one of rock’s greatest drummers.
As for Geddy Lee, he was much more than a lead singer who played bass…he was a bass player at heart. The funny thing is, Rush is the only band I can think of where the guitarist is virtually unknown but the bassist and drummer are both well known. And for good reason.
This song is fun for its 80’s keyboard and almost new wave Rush sound, and the video adds to that by showing us an 80’s video game…see how far we’ve come (those that are playing Black Ops today).
Enjoy the music…
