Rush The Spirit of Radio Lyrics

Last updated: 08/17/2011 11:00:00 AM

Begin the day with a friendly voice,
A companion unobtrusive
Plays that 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 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, yeah,
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 were written on the studio wall,
Concert hall
And echoes with the sounds of salesmen, of salesmen, of salesmen!

These lyrics should be an oath one must take before being allowed onto the airwaves!

Unfortunately, most of the machinery these days making modern "music" comes across as cold, flat and mechanical. But then, we can't all have Mr. Peart for a drummer, (and lyricist!) now can we?

Rush = accepting | Reviewer: Mr. YYZ | 1/15/11

Even Rush accepts modern music. "Even modern machinery can make open-hearted music". In other words, Modern music can still be soulful, but "it's all a question of your honesty". "one likes to believe in the freedom of music". some genres of music can never die, "emotional feedback on a timeless wavelength"
