Musical Interlude: Subdivisions (1982)

While I was in high school, a friend turned me on to the Canadian trio, Rush. The concert clip of "Limelight" was getting decent airplay on MTV when the channel debuted in the home district in the winter of 1982. Later that year, Rush released "Signals", and the first single off that album, "Subdivisions", gained some heavy airplay during the summer.

The societal themes prevalent in the video are still relevant today.
