#1@1
•    It is the opening track of their 1983 album 90125. This was the group's one and only #1 charting hit.
•    Originally it was written as a ballad, not as the rock song that became famous.
•    The song's music video received a great deal of airplay on MTV, introducing the revamped Yes lineup and sound to a new generation of fans largely unfamiliar with the band's very different earlier work, which had helped to define the genre of progressive rock. 
•    According to Trevor Rabin on the DVD Yes Video Hits, he wrote this song in his bathroom (which had very good acoustics), and it was a "particularly long visit.
•     Here’s Yes with “Owner of a Lonely Heart” your #1@1 from January 1984.
