• May 2023 Update: Many apoligies for the extended period of inactivity, however many big changes for Rush Archives are now in progress. This should benefit everyone, and propel the site onward in the most realistic way possible. Thank you to those who have been supporting this project, and for being patient with the methods I've so far been operating. Further details will be coming soon.

Something I've Always Wondered About in Hemispheres (The Song)


I admit I never researched the answer to this question because it's really obscure, but maybe someone out there might have read about it at one time or has a guess on this... The part of the song before "I have memory but no awareness..." there's a few seconds of a reprise from Cygnus X-1 played somewhat faintly. Then from 12:36 to 12:40 we hear something that's not a reprise, however it is at the same faint volume as the Cygnus X-1 reprise. I wonder if that section from 12:36 to 12:40 was an outtake from Cygnus X-1 that never made it to the final recording in the studio. Any guesses?
Hmm. I'm not sure exactly what it is but that's not a bad guess as far as I'm concerned. I know a lot about the band but this seems like a fairly obscure thing that could be difficult to research.
