Song #78: "Changes"--Yes (1983)

Yes has eight overall songs in the Top 500, and six of them, as we've discussed before, come from one of my "must-have" albums, "90125". You've heard the old question, if you were stuck on a deserted island, which five albums would you want with you, right? This one would definitely make the list.

This is the fourth of those six songs, one that builds on the combination of the "progressive rock" sound that Yes used so successfully as its foundation, with a nice early 1980's twist with the extended opening to the song, complete with xylophone. If I ever got to learn how to play one, this would be the Holy Grail of tunes to learn.  :)

Will we hear from Yes twice more before our journey concludes? Why yes....and yes.  :)
