Two songs written and recorded by RUSH have an interesting link,

they were both inspired by writings other than Neil's. Both are

excellent songs, classics by any standards. The first is Xanadu

which was inspired by Kubla Khan by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

The second is Red Barchetta which was inspired by

A Nice Morning Drive by Richard S. Foster.
