Rush's Closer to the Heart on CBC reality show Battle of the Blades
9:53AM EST | comments (7) |

Battle of the BladesBattle of the Blades is a popular Canadian figure skating reality show from CBC Television that teams up retired NHL players with professional figure skaters for a competition much like Dancing with the Stars. This past Sunday night's episode featured the team of Amanda Evora and Scott Thornton performing their routine to Rush's Closer to the Heart. You can see the pair discussing their choice of song in this YouTube clip and watch the actual performance below or at this location. Thanks to Dave B and Wayne R for the heads up.

Genesis with Gabriel was an amazing band. Nursery Crime and Foxtrot are classics!!! When Phil Collins took over as the front man, ummmmmmmmm, not so much. Wish I could see PG on tour. Bet you had a great time Simon!!!

Pretty nice . Would like it more ,if the song wasn't edited to pieces like it is, for this. Closer to the heart is kind of a Rush song that is taken for granted , after all these years. It's really one of Rush's best songs ,probably.

Been a busy week for posts so go back to the HOF debate last week.I saw Peter Gabriel for the first time ever at o2 in London last night.Great concert and great band from the SO album. Didnt know a lot of his material so updated from youtube with fans clips from European tour which helped greatly. Good showman and still sprightly at 63-vocals sounded good as well. Did 2hrs 15 mins and had good support act as well.As an innovator he should have been in HOF yrs ago but very worthy now.Odd but welcome seeing women dancing to Gabriel as he was in Genesis and like Rush they attracted mainly fellas.Times have changed for the better.Would have liked a nod to Genesis ie I Know or Carpet Crawlers
but cant have everything. Top price was £58 which is amazing considering most charge £100.

Christ! Am I the only one at home with the flu today? Best part is near the end of the clip. Kudos to Ron MacLean for his shout out to the boys!!
