Had I stuck to the original plan, today would have been the third day in a row of cover songs, as the Polyphonic Spree’s rendition of “Lithium” – an all-time great cover – was the original 5:23 pick. But I did kind of want to use one of their original works instead and besides, I also saw that “Carry On Wayward Son” was an option here. I’m not a big Kansas fan myself, but there’s this Old Guy who I used to work with who is a BIG Kansas fan. One time when we were working together on a project, the local Tower Records was closing and he heard they had the Kansas box set on sale. I’m pretty sure he ran right down there and picked it up. So this one’s for the Old Guy. Enjoy it now, because soon we’ll all be dust in the wind!
