What's next, songs that use the word, "The" or "And"? OK, maybe I am being a bit snarky (it's a Monday morning), but honest question: Is there good justification for a "Yes" category? Isn't that a pretty common word to use in a song? -CJSF 07:53 1 October 2012 (EDT)

i think something like affirmation or certainty is enough to warrant a category for songs (e.g. "2082" "yes, it's safe"). or, alternatively, just songs or lines that center around yeses or yeahs, use "yes" or "yeah" to answer a question, etc, rather than as a simple exclamation. this page generally collects those, and while exclamations are also included, i think there are quite few. of course, there are also song themes for "no", "guy", "I am", and some other simple words or phrases, so it's not like this is an outlier. but if you feel strongly about song themes then you ought to check out Category talk:Song Themes, too. -Apollo (colloquia!) 15:34, 1 October 2012 (EDT)
I'm not feeling THAT strongly about it, just a combination of curiosity and Monday-iness. -CJSF 16:20 1 Ocotober 2012 (EDT)
I understand your concerns, CJSF..."yes" is not exactly a word unique to TMBG. But it's more in the way the guys use it (and No) that makes it intriguing or even amusing. Examples include: "YES! I will date the girl from Venus..." (For Science), the agonized "noooo"s in 32 Footsteps and The Big Big Whoredom, and the best of all, "No!" (the song). Some of the songs referenced in this theme are more appropriate than others, but all include variations on "yes" and therefore should be retained. :-) --MisterMe 22:11, 1 October 2012 (EDT)
