3618. Rush - Open Secrets

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51m9eo0349L._SX522_.jpg
From: Hold Your Fire; Year: 1987; Genre: Rock/Progressive Rock
Ah, mid 1980s Rush; it seems that you either love it or you hate it, but I'm sure there are some middle-of-the-road fans out there too that are indifferent. I'm one that loves it; to me their journey through the '80s was much more experimental, pushing the band to do things differently. Sure, it was great in the 1990s when they went back to basics, but they really pushed their sound in my opinion during the 1980s.
This in my opinion is among the stronger songs from Hold Your Fire, and one of my favourites from the album.

3606. Jethro Tull - Driving Song

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71EXNOMaryL._SX522_.jpg
From: Living in the Past; Year: 1972 (1969); Genre: Blues Rock
Yesterday I was on the road for most of the day or at least away from home and I had this track on my mind; thought I'd go ahead and pick it.
This was originally a single release from the end of their time as a hard rock blues band and was added onto the compilation album Living in the Past with many of their other singles at the time that were without an album.
Driving Song is a definite blues written around a triplet on a driving bass line provided by the late-great Glenn Cornick.
