My initial idea was to have a quiz on the tunes by each member that has the most Spotify streams from their 70s work. Those are the first tunes by each artist in the quiz above. But then I quickly found a couple of problems: In most cases, the first track of their most acclaimed album usually has the most streams (that's true for all except Chris Squire's Fish Out of Water album). Another problem was that Jon Anderson's most streamed song from the 70s is that tune from Vangelis' Heaven and Hell album. So I decided to add a second tune for each artist. My criteria for adding a 2nd song was simply to choose my favorite tune from each artist (at least in the case of Bruford, Squire, and Howe. In Anderson's case, I went with his most-streamed song from Olias, which of course turns out to be the first song on the album. Also, I cheated with Squire because the first two tunes on his album are connected and really should be played together as one song. With Wakeman, I went with his 2 most streamed songs from what is by far his most popular 70s album).

I voted Chris Squire - Hold Out Your Hand, mainly for You By My Side which is a separate song officially. I might have gone for a track from Olias but as you say that's just the first track and doesn't even have any vocals on it. It's by no means the best track on that album.

They're all great songs, but I voted for Jon Anderson's Ocean Song.

Squire's solo album as a whole is greater than anything Yes produced - aside from a few minutes on Relayer and Tales - from CTTE to.....Drama?  Ever?

So far, Steve Howe's All a Chord has 0 votes. That's a shame, I love that tune so much. I rank it with the best by the other artists above (So Long Ago So Clear, Hold Out Your Hand/You By My Side, Fainting in Coils).
