Dissertation Listening Examples

“Permanent Change:
Rush, Musicians’ Rock, and the Progressive Post-Counterculture”

Ph.D. dissertation in Musicology, UCLA, 2003

All of Rush’s songs can easily be found on YouTube, Spotify, and elsewhere. Some of them can also be found in their original video format. Keep in mind, though, that there are numerous tribute versions of Rush songs, as well as various live performances by the band itself. In each case, be sure you actually have the thing that I’m discussing!

The playlist below includes most of the Rush songs for which I include musical notation within my dissertation.
