Best Kansas Songs

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Icarus II

This tale of a WWII bomber pilot not only shows that Kerry could still pen thoughtful lyrics but also a terrific instrumental section that shows off just how creative drumming and guitar playing can be.

It's the sequel to #12, so why not it be higher?


Ok, so most of the song is ok, but what really made this song great was the good intro. - AggressiveBlaze

43All the World

A really powerful and beautiful song. The lyrics are hopeful and the emotional scope of this song is very wide. There are also some bold transitions which I love. The violin also works really well in this song and Steve's keyboards and vocals shine particularly bright in this one. I strongly recommend checking this one out if you've never heard it before.

My personal favorite! Been listening to Kansas since 1974, Love their music! Always have! If you have never heard this song, do yourself a favor and give it a listen!

44One Man, One Heart

The lyrics are beautiful. Chorus is powerful. Easily a rock classic. The guitar solo is a little drowned out and not quite as impressive as Hold On, but the harmonics screech and whine.. So good!

45Hopelessly Human

A joyous occasion, no reason to doubt! What a way to send the Point of Know Return album off in style. The epic, Medieval-type instrumental passages, hard rock freakouts, melodic vocal passages, and memorable, thought-provoking lyrics.

46Mysteries and Mayhem
47Going Through the Motions

Its like a rising spiral


So emotionally deep! Thanks 1992!
