Yes Music Early In The Morning

Posted by steve | General Commentary,Music | Thursday 29 May 2014 4:06 am

I woke up early this morning and decided I had not listened to music from my favorite progressive rock band, “Yes”, in a long time. So I made a quick playlist in iTunes of about a CD-length of music, put my headphones on, and listed to some wonderful music. I remember, when selecting songs for the quick playlist, that I wanted to hear some of their best but out-of-the-way music.

Listening, I remembered why I love this band so much. The music and vocals are outstanding and moving.

Here is the playlist.

  1. Cinema
  2. Leave It (vocal)
  3. Take The Water To The Mountain
  4. Nine Voices (Longwalker)
  5. Mind Drive
  6. That, That Is
  7. Order Of The Universe [Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, Howe]
  8. Change We Must [Jon Anderson]
  9. New New World [Jon Anderson]

When I got to the end I looked back over the playlist song titles once again and noticed a theme running through these which is striking. My subconscious was talking to me this morning?

It is interesting that my mind often seems to work on design and coding problems while I sleep. I’ve written about that behavior before. And it happened again. This morning when I first awoke, before deciding to listen to some music, sure enough I realized a possible solution to a technical problem at work. When I get in this morning I’ll check it out.

This is the first time in a long time when I awoke also thinking about music though.
