In my mind there are two categories of music: fake and real. Fake music is synthesized and real music is human beings playing instruments and truly singing, not just pretending to. For those of us that have to endure our kid”™s music, the distinction is necessary and appreciated. Today”™s Friday Favorite is “The Big Money” by Rush. These three Canadians know how to make music and this 5:35, 74 rpm climb is multi-layered for great coaching opportunities. At 2:50 the vocals pull back for a full minute and give way for introspection.
Here is the video:
I wasn't able to find anything from RUSH but I used this Moby remix last night in a class I subbed and they loved it! We watched the new Epic Planet DVD: Epic California Mt. Baldy use discount code ICIPRO30% for a 30% discount. This video has a number of very long climbs where a song with a strong beat @ 70 RPM like this track is awesome.

I live in an area where you can see live music for little or no money, but tonight I’ll be traveling to Austin, Texas to see Rush and it wasn’t free. My students will be listening to a Rush song or two on Monday.
Please let us know how the Rush concert was. I am a little bit jealous! They were here (in MN) last August- at our State Fair, and I had to choose between my class reunion and the concert. I chose the reunion. But, I do love Rush concerts. Their lighting is always good and the music they make is incredible. I cannot believe it is only three men. They do Canada proud.
I have my high school boyfriend to thank for introducing me to them. We re-connected this fall (thanks to the reunion and Facebook). We are both still fans.
Amy it was as good as ever. I love to tell my students I love over orchestrated rock and roll. I love to get lost in the guitar riffs. My musical tastes have grown over the years, but Rush will always be a favorite.
They integrated video into their set. I really enjoyed that and it showed a sense of humor that you wouldn’t normally see.
So in the end this Working Man buckled up in his Red Barchetta while driving thru the Subdivisions, with By Tor and his Snow dog, Tom Sawyer and Cinderella Man hoping to get caught in the Camera Eye while looking for the Limelight.
NICE DANA!!!! Here’s to over orchestrated rock and roll. May it live on until Bastille Day. And may we exercise our Freewill to listen to it on the Spirit of the Radio, keeping it Closer to the Heart, always making The Big Money, forever.
Made me laugh. I’m sure we could go on and on.
