Subdivisions



I am not the biggest Rush fan I know - that would be this guy. However, I have a lot of respect for what they do, especially Neil Peart. And one song in particular that always resonates with me is "Subdivisions". It's a song I wish I had heard as a teenager. Though my details don't precisely match, this song describes my life in those days with uncanny precision.

"Subdivisions" is a powerful song, even if you aren't a big Rush booster. I used to keep some of the lyrics in my wallet as a reminder, and it might not be a bad idea to find that little slip of paper now. I bet Neil Peart never dreamed something like that would happen when he auditioned to be the drummer in the band.
