I still like the YouTube comment in which it was suggested that the title of YYZ should be changed to "Look At This Guy Play Bass!"

For a start I'd rename Lock and Key The Killer Instinct... then I'd shorten I Think I'm Going Bald to OHSHITI'MBALD... and Madrigal would be... heck, anything except Madrigal.... Open Secrets would be something else, probably Feelings.... Turn the Page would be Time Capsule.... Vital Sign would be Mixed Feelings (favourite line of the song, Everybody's got mixed feelings)... Entre Nous is fine but would make more sense as Between Us because as far as I'm aware there's no French in this song (unlike Circumstances)... well, there's more but I can't be bothered to write all of it tongue.gif

Geddy is my favorite bassist, he is just so incredible, how fast he goes. I like to play bass, guitar, synthesizers vocals for my band, Unknown. We should go touring in about 10 months (delay), but we need a new drummer. Alex lifeson is a great guitarist, and neil peart is the greatest drummer ever!

I don't think we are changing the names well. I like how Rush doesn't name their songs after a lyric all the time, they think of something intuitive, which none of these responses are. Just saying...

I have to say, I agree with that.  Or if it's not intuitive there's usually a specific influence or reason for it.  We all know the guys try to do things differently and I think naming songs is part of that.

The title of Entre Nous IS Between Us - in French.  Maybe just for the hell of it.

I also like red lenses.  smile.gif

YYZ is the airport code to the airport in Toronto (the airport's actual name escapes me now ...)

YYZ in Morse code is also the song's intro.

I never caught that till you said it...that is a fantastic bit of wit from the guys there.....

As to the thread, some replies are just silly...

I also have several friends who thought the title of Entre Nous was "Just between Us"

The Camera Eye could be - "The Long Awaited Friend"

And Driven could be - "It's My Turn To Drive"
