A quick check of my last.fm account reveals that these are my top five.
 
UK -- In The Dead Of Night (#3 overall)
Yes -- Roundabout (#4 overall)
UK -- By The Light Of Day (#9 overall)
Bruford -- Hell's Bells (#10 overall)
Uk -- Alaska and Bruford -- One of a Kind pt. 1 (Tied for #12 overall)

Besides Yes, King Crimson and UK songs, I would say Hell's Bell's is probably his most well known song in the prog community

Can't forget "Heart of the Sunrise."  Maybe it's not listened to and appreciated enough from the prog community...

Or maybe it's just not as good as Roundabout and South Side of the Sky?

Yours is No Disgrace probably had more airplay than any other in the UK.
if only because it used to be the theme for the  main news in Scotland (every night for several years...)
