Top 100 Songs
This list was created by tallying the number of appearances songs had on Yes compilations and live albums as well as best-of lists focused on Yes songs. The top 100 ranking songs were then re-ranked according to their overall status on Dave’s Music Database, which integrates best-of lists as well as chart success, sales, radio airplay, streaming, and awards. A few lists incorporated some Yes-related material, hence the inclusion of songs by the Buggles, Asia, GTR, Jon Anderson (solo), and Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman & Howe.
