I was in a little restaurant on Bantayan Island, Philippines, and the owner played YES. Was really cool to hear Awaken at such unexpected place.

That is pretty weird but 1982 I was in a Chinese Restaurant in my home town of Bishopbriggs, Glasgow where they played in its entirety the whole Pornography album by the Cure. Yes, I was stone cold sober but will never forget the look on my fellow diners faces. When the waiter was questioned about the choice of music he merely gesticulated as if to say: deal with it

Earlier today I heard The Moody Blues' Nights in White Satin playing in a café I ate at.

Not prog, but quite unexpected -- I heard Sabbath's "Symptom of the Universe" as background music on a radio sports/talk show this morning. I don't think I've ever heard that on the radio before, even back when the album was released.
Please pay a visit to my blog...The Dark Elf File...a slighty skewed journal of music reviews, literary comment, fan-fiction and interminable essays.

A while back I went to the local beach for a swim, and the fibro shack near the walkway had some familiar music blaring out of it. I knew the guitar sound so stopped and analysed it. The Lamia (from Genesis' The Lamb) of all things. I wanted to knock on the door and shake the hand of the folk within.

I dunno if this was mentioned yet but there's an episode in the show Parks and Recreation where the character Tom makes a video for Leslie Knope and he's talking about all the unfortunate events that happened the year she was born and one of them is "Peter Gabriel leaves Genesis". Totally caught me off guard because it's so obscure and not like Tom's character at all. good show too

Cool!  In 1979, I was in a beach resort town Mangalia (near Constanta) in Romania during Nicholai Ceacescu's reign and heard "Awaken" on the radio of the tour bus driver.  One of the very best Yes songs, made even better by the exotic circumstances!  Nothing like symphonic prog mingled with AK-47s!
