Wonderous Stories" is a song by the English progressive rock band Yes, released in September 1977 as the first single from their eighth studio album, Going for the One. It was written by lead vocalist Jon Anderson, who gained inspiration for the song one morning during his stay in Montreux, Switzerland where the band recorded the album. The song reached number 7 on the UK Singles Chart and remains the band's highest charting single in the country.

Anderson Ponty Band "Wonderous Stories" from the new album "Better Late Than Never". Wonderous Stories" is the second track on Going for the One and is solely written by lead vocalist Jon Anderson. He wrote the song during "a beautiful day" while staying in Montreux, "one of those days you want to remember for years afterwards". During the day, the lyrics to the track entered his mind that he later wrote down. He noted the song's meaning as "the joys of life, as opposed to the uptightedness of some aspects of life" that was inspired by romantic stories and "a kind of dream sequence"

Only for completionists (0%). Parallels' (written by Chris Squire) is together with 'Going for the One' my least favourite from the album. It is a powerful tune, but the church organ in it feels quite out of place. A single release from Yes in 1977.

Parallels" was the closing track on side one of Yes' eighth studio album, Going for the One, which was released on 15 July 1977. The audio for this vid is 192Khz/24bit FLAC sourced from HDtracks release of the album. I think it sounds pretty great. Parallels" was part of a collection of songs that Squire had written for.

It also makes space for deeper cuts like "Everydays," "Parallels," and "Leave It" (the excellent a cappella mix, no less), resulting in one of the more comprehensive (and affordable) Yes anthologies to date. Track Listing - Disc 1. Sample.
