Rush - 'The Spirit Of Radio' (Snakes and Arrows Tour)

Begin the day
With a friendly voice
A companion, unobtrusive
Plays the song that's so elusive
And the magic music makes your morning mood

Off on your way
Hit the open road
There is magic at your fingers
For the Spirit ever lingers
Undemanding contact
In your happy solitude.

Invisible airwaves
Crackle with life
Bright antennae bristle
With the energy
Emotional feedback
On a timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond price -
Almost free...

All this machinery
Making modern music
Can still be open-hearted
Not so coldly charted
It's really just a question
Of your honesty

One likes to believe
In the freedom of music
But glittering prizes
And endless compromises
Shatter the illusion
Of integrity

"For the words of the profits,
Are written on the studio wall,
Concert hall -
Echoes with the sounds...
Of salesmen."

Το "The Spirit of Radio" αποτελεί ίσως το πο πιο αναγνωρίσιμο τραγούδι των Rush. Πρόκειται για το εναρκτήριο τραγούδι του δίσκου "Permanent Waves" που κυκλοφόρησε τον Ιανουάριο του 1980, ενώ "βγήκε" και αυτόνομα τον Δεκέμβριο της προηγούμενης χρονιάς (ως promo) και τον Φλεβάρη του 1980 (ως single) με το "Circumstances" (στην Αμερικάνικη έκδοση) και το "The Trees" (Αγγλική version) στην δεύτερη πλευρά του βινυλίου.

Στην παρούσα ανάρτηση θα απολαύσουμε την Καναδική μπάντα να το αποδίδει "ζωντανά" το 2007 στο πλαίσιο της περιοδείας για την προώθηση του δίσκου "Snakes and Arrows", από την οποία προέκυψε και το album "Snakes & Arrows Live" που κυκλοφόρησε την επόμενη χρονιά (Απρίλιος 2008)...
