“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 being in the limelight. “Limelight” also employs some of Shakespeare’s phrases (one of which was previously used as a title for a live album). The single charted #4 on the U.S mainstream and #55 on the U.S Hot 100, and is one of Rush’s most popular singles. “Limelight” was one of five Rush songs inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame on March 28, 2010.
