Yes \Yes\, adv. [OE. yis, [yogh]is, [yogh]es, [yogh]ise, AS. gese, gise; probably fr. ge['a] yea + sw[=a] so. [root]188. See Yea, and So.] Ay; yea; -- a word which expresses affirmation or consent; -- opposed to no.
Note: Yes is used, like yea, to enforce, by repetition or
addition, something which precedes; as, you have done
all this -- yes, you have done more. ``Yes, you despise
the man books confined.''
Note: ``The fine distinction between `yea' and `yes,' `nay'
and `no,' that once existed in English, has quite
disappeared. `Yea' and `nay' in Wyclif's time, and a
good deal later, were the answers to questions framed
in the affirmative. `Will he come?' To this it would
have been replied, `Yea' or `Nay', as the case might
be. But, `Will he not come?' To this the answer would
have been `Yes' or `No.' Sir Thomas More finds fault
with Tyndale, that in his translation of the Bible he
had not observed this distinction, which was evidently
therefore going out even then, that is, in the reign of
Henry VIII.; and shortly after it was quite

Yes is a 2004 film written and directed by Sally Potter. It stars Joan Allen, Simon Abkarian, Samantha Bond, Sam Neill, Shirley Henderson, Raymond Waring, Stephanie Leonidas, and Sheila Hancock.
The film's dialogue is almost entirely in iambic pentameter and usually rhymes. This artistic choice polarized film critics.
Yes are a rock band formed in London, England in 1968 by bassist Chris Squire and singer Jon Anderson. They reached their critical and commercial peak in the 1970s with a seminal blend of progressive, art and symphonic rock music. They utilise mystical and cosmic lyrics, often within lengthy compositions utilising complex musical arrangements. Nine of their 21 studio albums have reached the top ten in either the UK or US, with two reaching number one in the UK. They have sold 13.5 million certified units in the US. Nineteen people in total have been a part of the band's line-up, including Swiss, South African, American, Russian, and Canadian members. The band's most recent line-up consists of singer Jon Davison, guitarist Steve Howe, bass guitarist Billy Sherwood, keyboardist Geoff Downes, and drummer Alan White.
Squire and guitarist Peter Banks had played together in The Syn and then Mabel Greer's Toyshop. Anderson and later drummer Bill Bruford joined a line-up of Mabel Greer's Toyshop, which evolved into Yes. Keyboardist Tony Kaye completed the first Yes lineup. The 1970s saw Yes release the albums widely viewed as their creative peak: The Yes Album, Fragile (both in 1971), Close to the Edge (1972), Tales from Topographic Oceans (1973), Relayer (1974) and Going for the One (1977). For most of this period, the band included Anderson, Squire, Howe (who replaced Banks in 1970), Rick Wakeman on keyboards and Bruford, or later Alan White, on drums; Kaye and Patrick Moraz each play keyboards on one of these albums. After the relative failure of Tormato (1978) and rise of punk rock, Anderson and Wakeman left in 1980; Squire, Howe and White recorded Drama with Downes and new vocalist Trevor Horn, both also members of The Buggles. Yes disbanded in 1981, with Howe and Downes subsequently creating Asia.
Yes reformed in 1982 with Anderson, Squire, White, a returning Kaye, and singer and guitarist Trevor Rabin, adopting a more pop rock sound. This quickly became the most commercially successful Yes lineup with 90125 (1983), which spawned the US number one single " Owner of a Lonely Heart", and the album Big Generator (1987). The tour in support of Union (1991), which amalgamated members of Yes and Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe, was a commercial success that featured an eight-man line-up (instead of a quintet). Subsequent albums and singles have sold less well.
The band toured almost constantly between 1996 and 2004, including both 30th and 35th anniversary shows, also releasing the albums Keys to Ascension (1996), Keys to Ascension 2 (1997), Open Your Eyes (1997), The Ladder (1999), and Magnification (2001) during this period. After a four-year hiatus, Yes resumed touring, replacing Anderson with Benoît David and Wakeman with his son Oliver Wakeman due to health issues. In 2011, they released Fly from Here featuring Downes, who returned on keyboards after 30 years. The following year David left the band due to illness and was replaced by Jon Davison of Glass Hammer. The band's twenty-first studio album Heaven & Earth, their first album with Davison, was released in July 2014. On 19 May 2015, Yes announced that due to leukemia, Squire was taking a leave from the band - for the first time in its history, with Sherwood, a former member as guitarist from 1997 to 2000, announced as his temporary replacement. Since Squire's death on 27 June 2015, Yes no longer features any founding members.
Yes is the eponymous debut studio album by the English rock band Yes, released on 25 July 1969 by Atlantic Records. Recorded during the first year of their formation, the album displays the band's early musical direction of performing rearranged cover versions of songs by pop, jazz, and folk artists. The album includes covers of " Every Little Thing" by The Beatles and "I See You" by The Byrds and original material, much of which written by singer Jon Anderson.
Yes was not a commercial success upon release and failed to enter the UK chart, but it received a considerable amount of positive reviews from UK and US press. " Sweetness" and " Looking Around" were released as singles which also failed to chart. Yes was remastered in 1994 and 2003; the latter remaster contains several previously unreleased tracks including a rendition of " Something's Coming" from West Side Story.

Yes is the tenth studio album by English synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys, released on 18 March 2009 by Parlophone. The album was recorded throughout 2008 and is produced by Brian Higgins and his production team Xenomania. Xenomania also co-wrote three of the tracks. Guitarist Johnny Marr and string arranger Owen Pallett appear as well. " Love etc." was released on 16 March 2009 as the album's lead single.
Yes is the eighth album by Mika Nakashima; it is the fourth album to be released under her own name. It also was the first of her albums to have been released in both a CD only and a CD+DVD Limited Edition format. The album boasts a slower and more gospel-orientated arrangement.
The Limited Edition includes a bonus DVD featuring the videos for 'Cry No More,' 'Black & Blue,' 'All Hands Together,' 'My Sugar Cat,' 'Mienai Hoshi,' 'I Love You,' and a live recording of her cover of Louis Armstrong's 'What a Wonderful World.' The album and DVD are housed in a box slipcase with a different cover from the standard release of the album, and included a note with information on pre-ordering tickets to her Japan-wide concert tour, 'Yes My Joy,' before others with purchase of the album.
'Yes' debuted at #2 on the Oricon Daily Album Chart in Japan, but its weekly chart debut was at #3, selling 153,261 copies in its first week. To date it has sold close to 296,000 copies in Japan alone.
"Yes" is the debut single by McAlmont & Butler, released on 15 May 1995 and later included on their debut album The Sound Of... McAlmont & Butler. It was their first UK hit, written and performed by the duo and peaked at number 8 on the UK singles chart. It remains their most successful single.
Both McAlmont and Butler had departed from their previous bands in acrimonious circumstances shortly before the release - McAlmont from Thieves, Butler from Suede. The lyrics of the song were a thinly disguised attack on their former colleagues. In 2013 Bernard Butler spoke to NME about the song's genesis:
"Yes" is a song by English alternative rock band Coldplay. It was written by all members of the band for their fourth album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends.
