Best 100 Songs of All Time

       Who else should sing Dust in the Wind but the band named after the dust bowl, Kansas.  The song was a major hit for the band that has been heard in TV adds, movies, radio commercials, you name it.  Very odd for a popular song, its lyrics profess a melancholy and pessimistic outlook on life, which is nonetheless a rational one.  The song is sung in a haunting, wistful tone in keeping with the lyrics.  "All we are is dust in the wind" refers to how fleeting a moment are our lives and everyihing in them.  We may rant, rave, love, cry and laugh, but it is all in the end, a temporary state of being.  As Will Shakespeare would say, life is a tale told by an idiot signifying nothing.  Right on Will and Kansas.  You have to agree, though, that this is a very unusual theme for a blockbuster popular hit song.
