Interesting Covers of Dust in the Wind

One of my favorite songs ever is Dust in the Wind by Kansas.

I’ll always remember Halo 3 because of it, that’s for sure. That commercial made me want that game really bad!

So anyway, I heard the song come up on XM Radio the other day, and I was interested in seeing what kind of cover songs there are, and it turns out there are quite a few interesting ones.

There are also a ton of regular plain non-interesting ones too, but I tried to gather up the most original covers. Check ’em out below.

Interface – Dust in the Wind
Here’s your standard electronica version. If you like techo, you’ll probably like this song. I thought it was ok, but I’m not really into this kind of techno music.

Metalium – Dust in the Wind
When I first saw the name of this band, I was thinking they were heavy metal so I was excited to hear this cover, but it turns out that this is just a plain cover of the song. Nothing special here, as far as I can tell. I would love to hear a metal version if anyone knows of one though.

Daughter Darling – Dust in the Wind
Here’s a catchy, pop style version of the song sung by female vocalists. I thought it was an interesting take on the song. I enjoyed it and I like their version of the violin solo.

Gabriel & Dresden – Dust in the Wind
Here’s another electronica version. I actually like this techno sound much better than the first version I posted. I really like this one and it’s probably my favorite cover of them all.

Sasha and Shawna – Dust in the Wind
This version is another one sung by a female vocalist. I thought it felt extremely calming. I couldn’t find a video to this version though, so you can listen to it over at Songza.

Pensando en ti by Mago de Oz
This is a cover from the Spanish band, Mago de Oz. It’s a cover of the song, although they have changed the name to Pensando en ti, which means “thinking of you.” I thought it was great hearing Dust in the Wind in Spanish.

  2. Haha, sorry about that, just makes me mad. You can delete my comment if you want. By the way, cool site, I’ll look around it.

  3. The theme of this site? There really isn’t much of a theme I guess. I just post about anything and everything that comes to mind, which is where the name Aimless Direction comes from. I think I mostly post about interesting websites I come across, but other times just interesting stories or updates on my life.

  4. My girlfriend and I are the only writers on this site but feel free to comment on any of the stories we write if you like 🙂

    1. Hi Gary, Thanks for the comment 🙂 I agree. I think all of these remixes are good because the original is so good. It’s hard to ruin such a great song. I’m not saying it can’t be done though, lol.
