We wanted to note this momentous occasion because, as you know, Rush is a big proponent of family values, and few things say family like walking down the aisle and publicly expressing your lifelong commitment to the person of the opposite gender that you love.
Especially when you’re so committed to traditional values that you do it four times. Wow.
Sir Elton John, whose raging queerness makes him incapable of family values, was allegedly paid $1M to play the reception. S&R wasn’t invited to attend, but we have managed to lay our hands on his set list. In addition to playing several of his biggest hits, Elton also cranked out a few covers of other artists’ hits, including:
- “Money” by Pink Floyd
- “Money Changes Everything” by Cyndi Lauper
- “Money Money” by Liza Minelli
- “Money for Nothing” by Dire Straits
- “Money Money Money” by Abba
- “Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money)” by Pet Shop Boys
- “Take the Money and Run” by The Steve Miller Band
- “If You’ve Got the Money, I’ve Got the Time” by Willie Nelson
- “Free Money” by Patti Smith
- “For The Love of Money” by The O’Jays
- “Money Talks” by AC/DC
- “Money (That’s What I Want)” by Barrett Strong
- “Gimme Some Money” by The Thamesmen
Looks like it was a win/win affair. God Bless America.
