Geddy Lee has one of the most wonderful rock n roll voices going. He's skinny, lanky and you could chop wood with that blade-like nose. And still, he's sexy. Go figure. They play on the off-beat. They have such an asymetrical sound. I like it. This song is perhaps one of the best examples of their "off-beat" style.
Hair of the Dog
What a great driving song! I don't mean the beat is "driving", the song is great to drive the car to. But it makes you drive faster than you probably should. This video is obviously lip-synched, but... that was "standard procedure" back in those days when a band appeared on a TV variety show.
When I see You Smile
My ode to Makoto Nagano because I love his smile. I don't know what it is about the man, but he is just plain beautiful to me. I have this whole big fantasy in my head about what he's like, what it would be like to meet him, ect., ect. And tho I know it is a fantasy and I'll never meet him and he probably isn't anything like I imagine him to be, his smile is still inspiring to me. When I watch Sasuke while I'm doing my walks or my exercises, I can do more, walk faster, feel stronger, when I see his smile. Don't ask me what it means, I couldn't tell you. It just is what it is.
Sniff n the Tears
One of my all time favorite songs, EVER. I never get tired of this song. It is so sexy. It gives me chills. And it makes me feel... alive. Listening to it in the car can also result in speeding fines if you aren't careful. It's a special favorite of mine during my walks. The singer does not look anything like what his voice would lead you to believe he should look like. He's so cool in this video, tho. All the other guys are there sort of twitching, shaking their shoulders or making some movement and he's just... um... there. With that voice, he doesn't have to do anything else, tho. It's kinda hoarse, kinda husky, with a slight undertone of screechiness. I like it. This song also makes me want to bang on something. I'd love to learn how to play the drums.
I'm In You
Quite possibly the sexiest, most beautiful man God ever placed on this Earth. I have been in love with this artist since I was 8 years old. Before "Frampton Comes Alive", before he went "Hollywood", before he lost everything and had to work as a "studio musician" to make ends meet, before David Bowie took pity on him and asked him to tour with him as a member of his band! He was beautiful when he was young and had all that wonderful blonde hair. He's beautiful now, when he's old and doesn't have hardly any hair left at all. He's just beautiful. He was my first serious "crush" and he's still the only fellow who could ever make me forget that either of us is married. I'd give almost anything to be able to see him perform, just once, before one or the other of us dies.
That's about it for now, folks.
Thanks for playing along.
