Johnny plays guitar,
Geddy plays bass,
Steve Smith jumps in
All over the place,
Everybody have you read this crazy thread?

Talkin’ ‘bout movies
Ladyboys and manly men
f***s up, apologizes
“I won’t act like that again”
Poor Steve’s off his head, pop goes this thread!

And every time I wonder
Where he was coming from
I get a pain in my brain ‘Cause no answers come.

And every time I wonder
Where the thread went wrong,
Well the finger of blame is pointing at that sad dong.
(Ding-dong!)

Johnny played the bagpipes
Trailer played the bong
The forum’s way more fun
When we all get along
Hey everybody have you heard? Don’t be a turd!

:lol:

No matter how shitty it was/is, it at least has a chorus and a bridge so was an old-school pop song.
Both Zager & Evans and Mungo Jerry’s odious offerings were devoid of anything but a repetitive attempt at a melody - although to be fair to Mr. Mungo, I guess that song could be sort of a blues.
Man Without Hate :no:

Here’s last year’s Rush debut vs Clockwork Angels thread which included the modern classic “Johnny, what instrument do you play?” by Steve Smith:

Be careful, he might be like Voldemort!  Posting his name could give him more power!  :lol:

Nah, I’m not superstitious. I’m a mind-controlling cult leader. A cult of one: ME :blaze:

Oo-ooh, I'm a cult of personality! :haz:

Finding My Way, B and my preference of the two..  Didn't think much of it at first, but in time got to like it.  A fine first song.

The Garden, D to D-.  As others have said, a dour, dreary, throw in the towel song.

Gave me thoughts of the end of T. S. Eliot's The Hollow Men:

"This is the way the world ends, not with a bang but a wimper."  Jeez!

The Garden is a fully mature, realized piece of art. Finding My Way is a playful jammy, riffy thing rhat could have only be written by a 20 something kid with no real life experience. Like a KISS song. If you are into that sort of thing.
