220px-Fragile#6 – Yes – “Roundabout” – (1971)

It always amazes me that this song was released as early as it was (1971 in the U.K., 1972 in the U.S.). It seems like something that would’ve come much later. But that bassline… if you’ve ever wondered “how do I make my bass the integral part of a song” – this. This is how you do that. It’s a pretty long song, but it’s one of Yes’ best-known works.
