I've been trying to get this one out of me for a couple months. It's out now - not sure if that's a good thing.

Either way here's my full length-ish year in review song.

A modern day yodeler
Harley's guy
Today's Kornheiser
Mean and snide

Though his mind is clearly spent
He's golfing with the president
He's a part of the one percent
Tells his son its raining again

There are some who'd say that he is crotchety
Do you know who I am? causes anxiety
Littles provide Cracked Pepper Triscuits
Gary's giving Courtney six

His world came unfurled he was
Canned by that Raju creep
He detests the Purple Line

Today's Kornheiser
Names the Rascal's crew
Always shopping for shades
Begs for ice cream too

Now he likes to toast his steaks
From the Refuge Safeway
Always ready to bloviate
He has leftovers he forgets
Palm dinner!

What can you say about the cancerous meats?
And what do you say about expensive jeans?
Catch the Nationals, kitchen sink
Catch Uranus, over the Bay Bridge

The Euro models shows
Snow and ice so deep
Especially in the 20015

Exit the yodeler
Today's Kornheiser
He gets Fridays in June
For his golfing game
He bought decks shoes to last two decades

Great choice of song, and there are a bunch of great lines in this one. This is super high too, so nice job pulling that off. I'm a fan of their music - I've seen them live twice, 20 years apart. I'm not a huge fan of Geddy's voice, but it's kinda like AC/DC to me - he certainly gets it done and I can't imagine it without him. Now I wanna come up with a Tool or Coheed and Cambria jingle to keep this prog going. :)

I'm with you Joe. They are instrumentally centered so jingling them is tough, to say nothing of Geddy's otherworldly range.

I was beginning to think I was the only RUSH fan.
