Owner of a Lonely Heart – Yes (1983) Music Video

Owner of a Lonely Heart is a very catchy, hook and groove filled song.  The song's music video was shown frequently on MTV, which had helped to define the genre of progressive rock.  

Owner of a Lonely Heart was released in October 1983, as the album's first single.  In 1984, the song reached No. 8 in the year-end charts in the US. 


It was a commercial success in the United States, becoming the progressive rock band's first and only single to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and its Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. 

The single was reissued various times throughout the 1980s and 1990s with different remix versions and B-sides.

The song was written primarily by guitarist and singer Trevor Rabin, believe it or not, one morning when he was on the toilet, where he wrote "the whole thing, from beginning to end".

A&R man Ron Fair of RCA Records recognized that Rabin's songs were potential hits.  Rabin said Fair called Owner of a Lonely Heart "a game changer" and offered him an album deal on the strength of it.
