Song of the Day: Yes - Roundabout

Yup, prog!  OK, so I've noted that prog isn't really my thing - but a lot of the prog bands have some good songs amongst the wankery, and it's crazy to dismiss a whole genre just because most of it sucks (I believe that's called stereotyping, which is wrong).

Yes actually has quite a few good singles, and while it's hard to call an almost nine-minute song a single, "Roundabout" does get a lot of classic rock radio airplay (or at least it used to - it's been a while since I listened to the radio).  Granted, this song would be better if it were half as long, but the bass intro is really amazing, and the last minute could almost pass for Crosby, Stills and Nash. 

And like many prog albums, the cover art is pretty sweet:
