Chances are if you appreciate this, you have a penis.

And if you don't, I want to make you my bride.*

Here is a version of Rush's "In The Mood", live from 1976. The original was on their debut album, featuring the late John Rutsey on drums (and the original "hey baby"-filled lyrics were written by Geddy Lee, as opposed to most of the band's later lyrics which were written by the always-kooky Neil Peart).

On this version, Peart goes absolutely ballistic on drums. He absolutely did not want any part of Rutsey's simple four-on-the-floor pounding — he's Neil Peart, after all — so he went to the other extreme on this. In a serious way.

I dig it.
