SONG DISCUSSION: Entre Nous
An elegant song that declares we need space between ourselves and loved ones in order for each to grow closer to the other. Separation bringing togetherness, in other words.
This is one of those songs where Rush start to become much more personable with their lyrics while showcasing rapidly escalating arrangement skills. This is actually one of my favorite songs from a lyrical standpoint. I’m sure many people can relate to the lyrics. I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t found myself in a similar situation.
And I’m really glad this got played while it did during the Snakes & Arrows Tour (where it had its live debut in my hometown of Atlanta (wooo)). Now that I think about it, that whole setlist from 2007 was incredible.
Oh, and I think Geddy’s vocals truly shine in this song. And if you haven’t, I highly recommend looking up the live debut of this song on YouTube. It was on 6-13-2007 but Geddy’s voice straight up sounds like it did in the 80s, it’s incredible.
Thoughts on this song?
