Song of the Day: Yes – “Owner of a Lonely Heart”

On this day in 1984, this song topped the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, giving Yes their first and last No. 1 hit. The song charted all over the world, but the only place it hit No. 1 was in the U.S., with the next highest chart position being at No. 2 in Canada and The Netherlands. The video for this song was directed by famous graphic designer Storm Thorgerson, who designed the covers to several famous album covers, including Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and Animals; Led Zeppelin’s debut and Houses of the Holy, and AC/DC’s Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. The video actually used to scare me as a kid because of the part where the bugs are crawling around the guy’s face.
