Best Kansas Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Power
42 Sparks of the Tempest

Out of all the songs I've heard by Kansas This is my favorite, Carry on my wayward son, point of no return and dust in the wind are over rated

Either This or Lightning's Hand would be my favorite Kansas song under 5 minutes long.

43 Icarus 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?

44 All 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!

45 Fight Fire with Fire

While I like this song a lot, I prefer Metallica's Fight Fire with Fire, made just one year after this, over this one.

Pump Song! Great song to get up in the morning to. This song has a great work-out motivation like "Eye of the Tiger".

46 Play the Game Tonight

"Do you see yourself in a white spotlight
Then play the game tonight"

47 One 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!

48 Hopelessly 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.

49 Mysteries and Mayhem
50 Going Through the Motions

Its like a rising spiral

51 Wheels

So emotionally deep! Thanks 1992!
