Bright Yes


Speaking of playlists and such, I've been playing around with playlists in iTunes. Although I typically listen to whatever the original artist dished up -- yes, in the old days we used to call those "albums" :P -- it can be fun, even enlightening, to remix an artist's output in new ways. One of my favorite recent playlists is a collection of what I think of as some of the bright, shorter (less than 10 minutes), upbeat songs by Yes from their first ten studio albums. Here's what I came up with:

  1. I See You (from Yes, 1969)
  2. The Prophet (from Time and a Word, 1970)
  3. Yours Is No Disgrace (from The Yes Album, 1970)
  4. Roundabout (from Fragile, 1971)
  5. Siberian Khatru (from Close to the Edge, 1972)
  6. Sound Chaser (from Relayer, 1974)
  7. Going for the One (from Going for the One, 1977)
  8. On the Silent Wings of Freedom (from Tormato, 1978)
  9. Tempus Fugit (from Drama, 1980)
