I think Red Lenses is the worst in this group, but there are quite a few other Rush songs that I like less than that one.

I could cry red tears of blood that flow like a waterfall from my mud shot eyes.

Really?

Perhaps being a drummer since the 6th grade has tainted my so called intellectual brain.

I remember being GUP on cassette on release day at Record Factory.

I was like fuckking Elliot in ET racing home on my bike as fast as I could to hear it.

I remember hating Signals when it first came out on new release day.

So I was soooooo excited to hear the next Rush record.

I listened to the album all the way through and I fuckking fell in love after one listen.

"RED LENSES" blew my MIND!

Perhaps I am wired differently?  I zone into the music of RUSH, my brain sadly tends to tune out the lyrics.

Not sure if this is why you HATE "Red Lenses."  It's a masterpiece.  One of my all time favorites.  "The Soviets are the blues."

Love it.

The drumming so fuckking hard and fun to play too.  It really makes me mad that they faded the song out the end when Neil goes fuckiing nuts.

LOVE LOVE IT!

I was 16 when I saw the GUP Tour.

I was smashed into the barrier under Geddy after many of us Rush Hooligans well "BUM RUSHED THE STAGE!"  LOL!

Ged was staring down at me with a nervous face.  I seriously thought they were going to stop the show.

It was fuckking incredible.

I was able to see the YYZ NEIL PEART SOLO RED LENSES sequence with my very own 16 year young eyes!  I had "TEARS" in my eyes!!

BLEW MY FUCKKING MIND!

I saw the VAN HALEN 1984 that same year!  Same venue COW PALACE!!!  MIND BLOWN!

No wonder everyone thinks I'm on drugs and booze!!!  I'm high as a fuckking kite right now!  ROCK AND ROLL BABY!  MY DRUG OF CHOICE!!!!

Cranking "ELECTRIC" by THE CULT!  

CAPS ON BABY!

SUE ME!

You’re not on drugs. Drugs are on you.

How can drugs be on me Johnny?

I'm sitting here naked.

Cranking some 1987 Live WHITESNAKE!

Signed,

SLIDE IT IN

Hallucinogens once whispered to me, “Blaze, I need help. I’ve been on Earl for too long. Help me get off him. Please.”

I rank Nobody's Hero low too. It has potential but those clunky lyrics... However I do love CP, in spite of NH and Speed of Love.

Speed of Love needs my hands gripping it firmly around its neck.
Generally, I don't care for how Ged songs the word "love".  As in "looking for loooove", or"speeed of loooove".
You need to listen to  "Need Some Love" from the debut.   It's even worse there.
Naw, he kills it their with the primal scream approach.

"Ooo yes, I need some  :haz:  LOVE!  :haz:

I don't dislike that song but I rarely listen to it or even think about it. It's a little dull compared to what came before it. But I've always given the band credit for trying new things and sound textures. Best part is the intro. Once the first verse is over I don't care to hear the rest of it lol

Good News First should be one of the choices on this poll. It's not just the lyrics, it's not just the downbeat mood on an entire album of negativity, it's Lee's awful yodel singing. "The only thing we could agree on... is it couldve been Woooorrrsseeeee......" :scared:
I don't think in over 10 years now I've even listened to that entire song start to finish. My finger was always hovering over the skip button 30 seconds into every song not named Far Cry !
