Name that Lyric XCVI & Post # 750 !!!

We have a winner from last week !!! The lovely and talented Jeff correctly Identified

"Drawn like moths we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction
Cruising for the action
Lit up like a firefly
Just to feel the living night"

from Subdivisions by Rush. Bravo, Jeff, bravo !!!!

Aaah, Rush. One of the two bands in my life that I have been told I am too musically ignorant to appreciate. Steely Dan was the other. Rush is a band that I actually like(Steely Dan I really don't). I don't adore them or anything, but I dig some of their tunes. But I remember when I was in high school, and they released "Big Money", which I thought was one of the stupidest songs I had ever heard. And a guy I was friends with told me that I just didn't "understand" them. I couldn't "get it". The guy was somewhat nice about it, I suppose, I think he kind of pitied me.

Now, the due who told me I was "too musically ignorant" to appreciate Steely Dan actually used those words. I was a bit more offended by him. But, he was also the guy who asked me once, when I was 19(not maliciously, just stupidly) while we were in a BAR sitting in a booth across from the BARTENDER, drinking BEER:"So, Paticus, when do you turn 21 ?". I smiled, and answered through gritted teeth,"Why, 2 YEARS ago, as my completely valid driver's license states." Genius.

But I digress...On with this week's clue !!

"I will not kill
The one thing that I love
In this world of wreckage
I look above"

Good luck, Crimestoppers !!!!

And Don't Forget !!!: The Logo Contest !!!

Hmm, something by Stryper?

BTW, the classic rock station here in NC plays an obscene amount of Rush. Way more than classic rock stations in other places.

Celion Dion. That's my guess and I'm stickin to it.

She's not a good as Rush. And damnit, again I've got a craving for some Power Windows or Grace Under Pressure or Hold Your Fire... I dunno why, but I like that era more. Saw them twice and what great concerts they were, holy crap!

But I'd bet the classic rock station in Toronto plays 'em more than in North Carolina.
