Limelight – Rush – Rock Mastery

Limelight – Rush

"Limelight" is a song by the Canadian progressive rock band Rush. It first appeared on the 1981 album Moving Pictures. The song's lyrics were written by Neil Peart with music written by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson.

"Limelight" expresses Peart's discomfort with Rush's success and the resulting attention from the public.

The song paraphrases the opening lines of the "All the world's a stage" speech from William Shakespeare's play As You Like It; the band had previously used the phrase for its 1976 live album.
