Big Rush fan but voted Kansas here. It's just more exciting song to my ears.

Tom for me...great lead synth sound, a bizarre solo from Alex, and fantastic drumming.  COWS, like most of Kansas output (with some excellent exceptions) was never more than garden variety stadium rock to my ears Wink

Carry On'. Have heard both enough to lose my lunch, but 'Sawyer even more so. Greatly enjoy Peart's drumming on the thing, though.

Interesting that these songs are competing against each other in a poll. Former Journey manager Herbie Herbert has claimed in many interviews that the music for BOTH were stolen from very early Journey songs. Allegedly, Tom Sawyer was taken from "Nickel and Dime" (1977's Next), and "Carry On Wayward Son" was taken from "I'm Gonna Leave You" (1976's Look into the Future).

Tom Sawyer
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

I voted Carry On Wayward Son .. it was close ... its beauty thing .. I love Peart's drumming on Tom Sawyer so it was a tough poll.

Tom Sawyer made me a massive Rush fan. The synth and drums are gorgeous especially!
