3434. Rush - Marathon
From: Power Windows; Year: 1985; Genre: Progressive Rock/New Wave
Just in the mood for something for something from Rush today; this is one of my favourites off of their Power Windows album. I for one am a bit different on my outlook on the keyboard synth era than some Rush fans; I grew up hearing music like this and it has a special place for me and always will. It's also not as bad as some say, but to each their own; it might not be among their best eras, but I love it all the same.

Hear Marathon on YouTube.

  1. Synths, schmynths. This is one of the greatest songs in their entire catalog.

    1. It's good to hear another Rush fan who thinks the same way.
