Where is Lorraine?

And I love Red Sector A, but I had to go with The Weapon.

Btw, what was the thinking behind this selection of songs?

They're probably the five most dance-able songs in Rush's catalog.

Hence the poll title "Disco Rush" Segue. These will never rival ABBA however in that realm......

There were a couple shows during the CA tour where the sound where I was was very bass heavy.  I could hear the bass synth line much better than I ever had through a stereo, and then I realized that Red Sector A has a techno-y rhythm to it.  It's a bit odd, really, a song about the Holocaust having a dancey beat to it.

There's a dichotomy between the music and lyrics for a number of songs on that album (Red Sector A and Afterimage are among the most noticeable cases).  It's neat and makes sense given the "grace under pressure" theme.

Red sector a and the weapon are close... The other three are among the band's worst songs, with territories being the worst of the bunch.
