Actually, I think that the song from the Chase commercial is the version Robert Downey Jr (the actor) recorded in 2004 on his album "The Futurist" so I wouldn't say that Yes sold out.

Nope, I heard it again, it was definitely Yes!  Even if it were a cover, they'd get the royalty.  So why not?

I remember a Yes song was used in the TV trailer for the Tim Burton movie "Big Fish" some years ago. Can't remember which song. I do remember then watching the movie and being disappointed that the song wasn't part of the soundtrack, though it was a pretty cool movie.

According to Wikipedia, "Flash had a minor hit with "Small Beginnings" (1972, #29 Billboard Hot 100 chart) which was featured in the movie, Record Review."

Never saw the movie, but that's cool!  Great song!  

Here's the newly-reformed Flash playing "Small Beginnings" in practice:

Ray Bennett really nails the 6-string guitar on this tune, and Colin sounds great!!

Remember a time when the longer the song and stranger the lyrics were, the better?  A time when 10 minute organ solos, 2 stories of speakers and a dusty Persian rug on the stage was normal?  Go back to the era of Yes, Jethro Tull and Pink Floyd with K-Tell's "The Sound of Art: Progressive Rock of the 70s".  Here's what you'll get --

'Bungle in the Jungle' 
'Long Distance Runaround'
'Money'
'Follow You Follow Me'
'Lucky Man'
   plus treasured classics as
'The Sheriff'
'Turn it on Again'
and 'Only Solitaire'

I've seen it crop up occasionally on that '70's Show.  I think I remember Laura Prepon's character wearing a Kansas Point Of Know Return t-shirt once.

Yep, it was for the new Forza racing game.....I couldn't believe it when I saw the commercial - I actually did a 'rewind' on the DVR and watched the commercial a second time to be sure I wasn't having auditory hallucinations.

The one with the Kanye West song that samples Schizoid Man, or is there another that actually has the King Crimson song?

'Atlas' appeared on a Honda commercial awhile back, too. And 'Music for a Nurse' by Oceansize was used by Orange.
