The talented progressive outfit uses a heavily distorted guitar riff and some new duds to revamp their fading career. In the video, a crazed businessman gets sick of the daily grind and decides to launch himself off a tall building.


This 1983 single reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and became Yes's biggest chart success to date.
