Half the World: Background
This song title refers to the differences between the geographical hemispheres and the attitudes of their residents.—Robert Telleria, Merely Players
“‘Half the World’ is one of our finest moments as songwriters as far as writing a concise song without being wimpy or syrupy. It’s got a little bit of everything: nice melody, and yet it’s still aggressive. It’s hard for us to write that kind of song, really. You’d have to go back to ‘Closer to the Heart’ to find an example of that.” (Canadian Musician)—Geddy in Merely Players
“‘Half the World’ is a hemisphere of dreamy electricity.”—Martin Popoff, Contents Under Pressure
