Theme music

The music I use is the last movement of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. This has been used as introduction music at many Yes concerts. My theme music is not take from a live concert – I put it together from the following two creative commons sources:

  1. The Plastic Ono Band was one of the finest assemblies of raw musical talent. They produced what is considered to be one of the top Rock albums of all time.

    Three of the four Beatles played on that album. They were not the Beatles. Something was completely different.

    Queen has gone on will all it’s pieces except Freddie. They are not Queen without his voice Thundering from the microphone.

    Yes, in any incarnation without Jon Anderson, is not really Yes. It’s close sometimes – But “Yes lite” somehow. I am a HUGE Rick Wakeman fan, but Yes without Rick is still Yes. Not without Jon.

    1. Thanks so much for the comment, Michael. I certainly agree about Queen who are my second favourite band after Yes. I haven’t even bought the latest album!

      I will check out the Plastic Ono band as I don’t feel very well informed on that one.

      As for Yes – I ted to agree with your comments although I do love the albums without Anderson – they are just very different!

    1. Great to see that clip – I really must see the guys together before it’s too late! Saw them as part of Yes in 2003 which was fantastic!
