List Rules Vote for your favorite Yes songs, not just singles and hits.

List of the top Yes songs, as voted on by fans like you. These U.K. prog-rockers are noted for their technical abilities and use of orchestral arrangements. Though they formed in the late-'60s, and sold out arenas throughout the '70s, it wasn't until the early-'80s that they became major pop hit-makers. This poll includes all of Yes's hits, from "Roundabout" to "Owner of a Lonely Heart," but real fans know there are other great songs to vote on besides the singles. In fact many of their greatest songs are long 15minute+ epics that took up an entire vinyl album side. In their day, Yes were loathed by critics, but had one of the most rabid fan bases in all of rock, let alone progressive rock. The individual talents of Steve Howe, Rick Wakeman, Chris Squire, Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, and other great players like Trevor Rabin, Alan White and numerous other members have always somehow managed to achieve a "whole is even greater than the sum of their parts" goal on their best songs.  

Music videos and audio videos are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this page. Is one of your favorite Yes songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top. If the order of this list bothers you, then stand up and take control by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
