I love this song... My third favorite song by Rush. This came on my station twice!

The song was written about their feelings regarding the loss of privacy that comes with fame.

@Gregory Owens / Gene Simmons saw the talent and put his money behind it.

Saw them on permanent waves tour do Tom Sawyer b 4 released. Play bass 35 years and learned from Ged yand Chris squire basically. Must watch the d v d doc. Tells all u need to know. Neil's story heart wrenching and an inspiration to anyone tired of life. It might save yours.

RE: blesseED

I think the toms are the main similarity in Panama and Limelight, possibly keyboard sounds, aside from that both songs are saying get on with it, in their own special way.

Rush is the most underrated rock band in history. Their lyrics draw you in. Giddy Lee entrances you with his range, Pert astonishes you with his precision and Lifeson pulls it together with subtle magic and skill. Time for the R&R Hall of Famr

Why did this song get the attention? It made the top 40. It was weird to hear it there. I am not SO musically inclined. How does the piece resemble Panama by Van Halen?

My girlfriend said she wouldn't go to a Rush concert because she thought of Geddy's voice as a witch's voice. When we broke up, she and her new guy went to a Rush concert. B**CH!

The Clockwork Angels is amazing, tight, and stellar. Catch it if you can. Limelight is a solid work. It stays progressive while at the same time is very radio friendly. Crank it out boys and girls. Way to go fellow fans. They are headed to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Peace. This band is for real folks and they deliver.
