‘70s Song of the Day: “Carry On My Wayward Son”

Every day at That 70s Bog, you can now find a featured song of the day. ‘70s music is probably my favorite genre and I’m so excited to share these songs with you. I’d also love to hear about your own favorites from the decade of glam, glitter, disco, and classic rock.

Today’s song is inspired by my life right now. I’m completely obsessed with the TV show Supernatural, and this song is often featured on the show. Kansas’s “Carry On My Wayward Son” features amazing guitar playing as well as some of the most gorgeously rounded vocals from any Kansas song. The song starts out acappella, drawing you in to a slow tempo and then the hard guitar bursts through after the first, “Don’t you cry no more,” and by then you’re gone. If the radio isn’t maxed out in your car, then you obviously don’t have the song on!

I’ve been hearing this song a few times a day—randomly, I swear!—ever since I finished season 5 of the series, reminding me of my withdrawal. So here is a link to “Wayward Son” featuring good old (and smokin’!) Sam and Dean Winchester from Supernatural. Can you dig it?
