"Owner of a Lonely Heart" (4:27), written by Trevor Rabin, Jon Anderson, Chris Squire and Trevor Horn (producer), was a track on the Yes album "90125" (1983), a self-reinvention by a band that many had given up for dead, marked the band's definitive break with its art-rock roots. "Owner of a Lonely Heart" was a huge crossover hit, and its orchestral break has been relentlessly sampled by rappers ever since.

"Move yourself, you always live your life never thinking of the future. Prove yourself, you are the move you make. Take your chances win or loser. See yourself, you are the steps you take. You and you—and that's the only way. Shake—shake yourself, you're every move you make so the story goes. Owner of a lonely heart, much better than—a owner of a broken heart. Say—you don't want to chance it, you've been hurt so before. Watch it now, the eagle in the sky. How he dancin' one and only you. Lose yourself, no not for pity's sake. There's no real reason to be lonely. Be yourself, give your free will a chance, you've got to want to succeed. Owner of a lonely heart, much better than—a owner of a broken heart. After my own decision, they confused me. So my love said never question your will at all. In the end you've got to go look before you leap. Owner of a lonely heart. And don't you hesitate at all—no no. Owner of a lonely heart, much better than—a owner of a broken heart. Sooner or later each conclusion will decide the lonely heart. It will excite it will delight, It will give a better start. Don't deceive your free will at all, just receive it."
