Best Yes Songs

21 To Be Over

Man, I love this song. The lyrics are so profound... "Do not suffer through the game of chance that plays; always doors to lock away your dreams... "

Geniunely made me cry.

Absolutely love this song. fills me with peace.

22 Going for the One

I remember hearing this the summer it came out (1977) and it blew me away. It is elevated a billion times with headphones. If you have not played this song LOUDLY with headphones, you are doing yourself a disservice. Since that day and to this day, it has been my favorite song. It is the tune by which all other music is judged, for me.

23 Endless Dream

I feel like this song might be this low only because either fans don't know about it (I feel Talk is a lesser known Yes album) or old time fans don't care for the Rabin era Yes music. This song is definitely one of their top 5 best, it is my favorite Yes song. It is hardly at all like the other Rabin era Yes music. overall the song stays way more true to what Yes has been about since the 70s, a song about love, happiness, search for meaning in life, the beauty of life. just listening to this song is an enlightening experience. it's a Yes epic, reaching about 16 minutes in length. it's flawless. I don't know any other song that just makes you FEEL LIFE as much as this one does. - genesisyes

24 Beyond and Before
25 Harold Land
26 Mood for a Day
27 In the Presence Of

Perhaps the last classic yes song for me. Beauty, lyrical so meaningful, and that ability to build the last passage of a song to a sublime conclusion that you never want to end. Steve's slide guitar, luscious orchestration, soulful bass and wonderful subtle harmonics, all from such a beautiful simple piano intro.

28 Sweetness

I just can't believe this is so low... I just love this song, it's lyrics are beautiful and the sound is beautiful. - Mcflupy

29 Love Will Find a Way

This Song should be in the top ten list, check it out... Great song

30 Fly from Here, Pt. 1: We Can Fly

25 minutes of flawless music, all building up to the ending with one last beautiful burst of genius. Brilliant.

31 Don't Kill the Whale
32 Does It Really Happen?
33 On the Silent Wings of Freedom

Memories, how they fade so fast
Look back, there is no escape.

I love this song at it shows amazing quality of the instruments and blends with the voice. I recommend this song to every Yes fan c:

35 Survival

Oh my god! This is the best song on the self titled debut it should be at least at 20th or something! - SammySpore

Where is this song? It was on the greatest hits, and is an awesome instrumental by Yes!

36 Leave It

Great Song and a Great Music Video - original video released on MTV on I believe an April Fool's Day with several consecutive plays of slightly different versions of the video with more movement increasingly displayed. A true work of Genius! - Billyv

The voice harmony makes this their top song from 90125, certainly in their top 5 all time.

Only old songs in the top 10. The new YES rocks!

The Acapella version will give you chills. Magical blending of voices and masterful production by Trevor Horn - musicman4
