Yes – Owner of a Lonely Heart

Album: 90125

Released: 1983

‘Owner of a Lonely Heart’ is the first single from 90125, and was the group’s one and only #1 charting hit. The album was a drastic departure from Yes’ progressive sound in the ’70s, containing distorted guitar and synthesizers that were popular at the time. This song was written by Yes members Jon Anderson, Trevor Horn, Trevor Rabin and Chris Squire. It was sung by Anderson, who had just returned to the group since leaving in 1980.
