Song information

"Dust in the Wind" is a song recorded by American rock band Kansas. It was composed by the band member Kerry Livgren and released in 1977. Characteristic theme repeated throughout the song was originally a guitar exercise for the right hand’s fingers, invented by Livgren. His wife Vicci encouraged him to compose a song containing this tune. Livgren full of doubts, having written lyrics and full melody, presented the idea to the other members of the band. Soon after, the band began recording. "Dust in the Wind" stands out among the other songs of the band - it was their first purely acoustic number with slow melody and philosophical wisdom. Inspiration to lyrics was an excerpt from an old Indian poem, containing the phrase "for all we are is dust in the wind". The song was included in the album "Point of Know Return" and in 1978achieved sixth place on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
