Song of the Day

October 21, 2012
Ghost Rider
Rush
Vapor Trails (2002)

If I'm remembering my Rush history correctly, this album was made after Neil Peart spent several months (or even years? it's unclear) travelling the Americas by motorcycle, and this song's lyrics are directly about that journey.  Neil Peart went on this voyage during a period of grief - both his daughter and his wife died several months apart from each other earlier that year.  He quit the band at that time, but over the course of his journey he learned to deal with his grief, and came back with a new outlook on life, ready to rejoin the band.
