Rush Songs With Titles That Do Not Appear in The Lyrics

Here's a different way to compile a playlist. Take one band, in this case Rush, and filter the songs by selecting only those tracks where the title does not appear anywhere in the lyrics. The result, in this case, turns up 42 songs (excluding instrumentals). The list includes songs from across the spectrum of the band's large number of studio and live albums.

You won't find classic rock radio staples like "Tom Sawyer", "Subdivisions" or "Limelight", but you will find a great cross-section of the music Rush has created over 3 decades.

Play this for the diehard rush fans in your life and see if they can figure out the connection. It may just drive them crazy.
