3. "Limelight"

Neil Peart is largely an introvert, and when Rush began getting incredibly famous in the early 1980s, he poured his discomfort into the song "Limelight." "Living in a fish eye lens," he wrote. "Caught in the camera eye/I have no heart to lie/I can't pretend a stranger/Is a long-awaited friend."
