The Top Ten

1
Carry On Wayward Son
Supernatural Made this even more famous.
I really love this song
Maybe because of Supernatural... I always see Sam and Dean in my head whenever I hear it.
Or it could be because of South Park, I loved that episode with Kyle and Stan as Guitar heroes
Absolutely the best. Period. I spent the 70s and early 80s spacing out to this song. Just close your eyes and let it take over. Moves you from the reality of the day to the fantasy of the momment.
[Newest]My 2nd favorite song. I didn't find this because of Supernatural but because of introduction from my dad.

2Dust In the Wind
Hands down the most beautfiul song of Kansas. I found the band to be extremely mellow, but this song in particular made me feel respect towards them.

mickeyG94

Famous even here in Brasil and the whole South America

Very smart song people should start listening to real music and stop to listen to those crap
By far the best song of Kansas. An ode to the living that died and will die. Huge lyrics, unbeatable and true to the core. One of the rock songs of all time.

3Miracles Out of Nowhere
Hands down. This song is a lyrical masterpiece, and the instrumental is unprecedented. The break down at around 2:22 of the song is simply perfect. I love Kansas, and I love every song on this list, but this one for me, easily takes the cake.
This is one of those songs that makes me listen and listen again without getting tired... Just listen to that spectacular instrumental solo! AMAZING!

One of the most underrated songs! Amazing violin contribution!
[Newest]This is an amazing song! So glad to see it so high up!

4Icarus (Borne On Wings of Steel)
Cannot believe this is not on here. The only song comparable to The Pinnacle
This song not only is THE best Kansas song but it is one of the best songs ever written as well
This song along with sparks of the tempest are the best I've found so far!

5Song for America
Most serious Kansas fans adore this song for the lyrics and amazing musical arrangements it comes from a great album

6Journey from Mariabronn
Truly an undiscovered prog masterpiece. If you only listen to Kansas's mainstream radio songs, then you are missing out majorly.

7Apercu

8Point of Know Return

9The Pinnacle
This, is the number one song on this list. Kansas' ten minute masterpiece that displays vocal, violin, guitar and bass harmony. Excellent, but underrated. Much like Icarus (Borne on Wings of Steel)
This song is the pinnacle (pun intended) of Kansas progressive rock trajectory. A pure masterpiece through and through.
I don't understand why this is not on top 4.
One of my favorite songs

10A Glimpse of Home
Like really, listen to the orchestral format of this song. So amazing! Best of Monolith!
How is this lower than it takes woman's love? I mean, listen to the song! It's amazing!

The Contenders

11Questions of My Childhood

12Lamplight Symphony
An under the radar gem from the song for America album. The progression of the instrumentation section is so great. It really does sound like a symphony, and the emotional shifts in the song are breathtaking. The sound is huge and epic then suddenly sad and subtle. It's incredible.

13Child of Innocence

14Incomudro (Hymn to the Atman)

15Cheyenne Anthem
This song is just beautiful! The lyrics do an amazing job at making you feel really bad for the Native Americans when they were being forced out of their homelands. The instrumental section isn't anywhere near as flashy and technical as Magnum Opus, but it works.

16Portrait (He Knew)
Great song! Lots of time signatures and over all its worth listening to repeatedly.. lyrically has high quality range and meaning..

17It Takes a Woman's Love (To Make a Man)

18The Wall
Simply perfect message in its lyrics. At the end he finds out that everything he needs to tear or set down the wall is inside himself, by finding self inner harmony.
This song says so much about obstacles in life. There is no loss when you get beyond the wall. And when you follow Christ, nothing is lost.
By far one of the most moving songs ever! After all, haven't we all come to a "Wall" at some point in our life's
[Newest]It's perfect. It's the sum and proof of Kansas instrumental and composing potential. Magnificent!

19Death of Mother Nature Suite

20Closet Chronicles
The storytelling in this song is unequaled. I am sad to see it this low on the list.
