Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Soooo, how old do you have to be when you consider a song from 1980 to be a "new" one?
BONUS - Entre Nous - Rush, 1980
Entre Nous ("Between Us" in French) is the fourth track on the 1980s album Permanent Waves by progressive rock band Rush. It was also released as a single. The only live performances of the song to date occurred during the 2007 leg of the tour to promote Snakes & Arrows, an album released on May 1 of that year. It was then featured on the live album released on April 15, 2008.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 02/24/15:
|“A pivotal spiritual
attribute is that of self-mastery—the strength to place reason over
appetite. Self-mastery builds a strong conscience. And your conscience
determines your moral responses in difficult, tempting, and trying
