“Manhattan Project” is a 1985 song by Canadian progressive rock band Rush named for the WWII project that created the first atomic bomb. Lyricist Neil Peart read ten books about the Manhattan Project before writing the lyrics so that he had a proper understanding of what the project was really about. This song first appeared in the 1985 album Power Windows, Rush’s eleventh studio album. “Manhattan Project” is the third track on Power Windows at 5:07 long. Read on...
