These are ear-friendly tunes that veer into the commercial kitchen, straight towards the cheese and crackers section . Which do you like the most and you can add one that stinks too (like a good Muenster) Wink

Hey, I agree, which is why I voted for it but you must admit that , compared to their usual fare, the yodelling  was a tad "aromatic" .LOL

/How many pop songs have yodeling?

Well there was that Jewel song LOL
Either way, it's still one of the best driving songs of all time.

Came in here to post that Hocus Pocus is hardly cheesy. My mom got angry at me for playing that in the car!

I don't know if Heat of the Moment is really a progressive rock tune per se (unlike some other songs on that album, which definitely are proggy), but its an outstanding rock song, catchy, melodic and smooth. I find nothing cheesy about it, its just a good pop tune which fit the era well. In fact, same could be said for Owner of a Lonely Heart. Now you want some cheese, check out some Spandau Ballet, some Loverboy, some Air Supply, and most of the hair metal bands of the 80s. THAT is cheese.

It's often served with gourmet dinners, as an ideal way to finish off a sumptuous meal, a glass of vintage port in hand. Can't live with experimental/RIO/Zeuhl all the time. LOL A little simple treat from time to time, in secret, guilty pleasures. A taste of Bungle in the Jungle can be really  Cool

Either Moonlight Shadow by Oldfield or Hocus Pocus by Focus.  Crises is a great album, 1 side of prog epic, 1 side of good pop songs.

And before opening it, I thought this poll would be about Camembert Electrique vs. some random album with "brie" in the title. Wink

Moonlight Shadow is great
I´m really getting sick of this word "cheesy", anything that is popular is cheesy?

Agree with this.  Maybe not quite Stilton but a bludy good 'song' nonetheless.

It was the heat of the vomit, owner of spoken fart, we don't need no education (well, how about some grammar lessons LOL...

Hey, I actually remember Hocus Pocus getting air play as a little kid before I turned into a zombie prog pod person.  Probably qualifies as the first prog music I got into.
