Word of the Week 13th May 2024

Hearing - Talking - Yes I - Love you
Set your heart sail on the river Look around you as you drift downstream Hearing Pouring souls into the ocean Talking Take account of all you've seen Love you
One people - Together Freedom for today So easy the future So see the children's way
Love me Teach me Know me
One people - Together Freedom for today Tomorrow forever So see the people's way
Many moons cascade one river They light from side to side As we cross in close proximity Like rivers our hearts entwine How we talk - How we teach our children How we move - We direct our eyes All the senses tuned discovery As and as and when our hearts decide Be ready now - Be ye circle Be the central force ye life As the game extends the cycle Be ready to move
One heart's for love Hearts One's for giving Sailing down the river Two hearts are better Hearts Than one Throwing out a line I hearing it Hearts I living it I believe in it Sharing out your fortunes Two hearts are better Hearts Than one In and out of time
Hearing - Talking - Yes I - Love you
Solo
One heart's for love Hearts One's for giving Sailing down the river Two hearts are better Hearts Than one Throwing out a line I hearing it Hearts I living it I believe in it Sharing out your fortunes I loving it Two hearts are better Hearts Than one In and out of time
Who would believe you - Wise men do Days that we knew it clear with you You sing the answers question time Now it you need me let our hearts entwine Let our hearts entwine
Hearts - Sailing down the river Hearts - Throwing out a line I hearing it - I living it - I believe in it - I loving it
Hearts Two hearts will always be In and out of time
Solo
One heart's for love Hearts One's for giving Sailing down the river Two hearts are better Hearts Than one Throwing out a line I hearing it Hearts I living it I believe in it Sharing out your fortunes I loving it Two hearts are better Hearts Than one In and out of time As we flow down life's rivers I see the stars glow - One by one All angels of the magic constellation Be singing us now

Yes are an English progressive rock band formed in London in 1968 by lead singer Jon Anderson, bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Peter Banks, keyboardist Tony Kaye, and drummer Bill Bruford. The band has undergone numerous lineup changes throughout their history, during which 20 musicians have been full-time members. Since February 2023, the band has consisted of guitarist Steve Howe, keyboardist Geoff Downes, bassist Billy Sherwood, singer Jon Davison, and drummer Jay Schellen. Yes have explored several musical styles over the years and are most notably regarded as progressive rock pioneers.

Yes began performing original songs and rearranged covers of rock, pop, blues and jazz songs, as evidenced on their self-titled first album from 1969, and its follow-up Time and a Word from 1970. A change of direction later in 1970 led to a series of successful progressive rock albums, with four consecutive U.S. platinum or multi-platinum sellers in The Yes Album (1971), Fragile (1971), Close to the Edge (1972) and the live album Yessongs (1973). Further albums, Tales from Topographic Oceans (1973), Relayer (1974), Going for the One (1977) and Tormato (1978), were also commercially successful. Yes toured as a major rock act that earned the band a reputation for their elaborate stage sets, light displays, and album covers designed by Roger Dean. The success of "Roundabout", the single from Fragile, cemented their popularity across the decade and beyond. Jon Anderson and Chris Squire remained with the group throughout the 1970s, with Peter Banks, Tony Kaye, and Bill Bruford all departing across 1970 to 1972, and being replaced by Steve Howe, Rick Wakeman, and Alan White, respectively. Wakeman left the group in 1974, but returned two years later, with Patrick Moraz taking his place in the interim. After a final album, Drama, and tour in 1980, both of which saw Geoff Downes and Trevor Horn replace Wakeman and Anderson, respectively, Yes disbanded in 1981.

In 1983, Squire and White reformed Yes, with Anderson and Kaye returning, and guitarist Trevor Rabin joining. Rabin's songwriting helped move the band towards mainstream rock, the result of which was 90125 (1983), their highest-selling album, which featured the U.S. number-one single "Owner of a Lonely Heart". Its follow-up, Big Generator (1987), was also successful. In 1989, Anderson and former members Bruford, Wakeman, and Howe released the self-titled Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe album, after which they and the other then-current Yes members–Squire, Kaye, White, and Rabin–unified into an eight-piece line-up of Yes for the 1991 Union album and its subsequent tour. From 1994 to 2001, Yes regularly released studio albums with varied levels of success. After a four-year hiatus, they resumed touring in 2008 and have continued to release new albums; their latest, Mirror to the Sky, was released in 2023. Former members Anderson, Wakeman, and Rabin collaborated as Yes Featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman from 2016 to 2018.[2] Among the longest serving members of the band, Squire (the last original member) died in 2015, and White died in 2022.

Yes are one of the most successful, influential, and longest-lasting progressive rock bands. They have sold 13.5 million RIAA-certified albums in the U.S.,[3] as well as more than 30 million albums worldwide.[4] In 1985, they won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance with "Cinema", and received five Grammy nominations between 1985 and 1992. They were ranked No. 94 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.[5] Their discography spans 23 studio albums. In April 2017, Yes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which chose to induct current and former members Anderson, Squire, Bruford, Kaye, Howe, Wakeman, White, and Rabin.
