You know that Owner Of A Lonely Heart is about chess right?

The majority of Yes song are about chess.

You got to move on back two squares.

For the Queen to lose.

For the life of me I can not find any references for yes and chess except for a paywall site...

I've never read that. Never looked actually. Been listening to Yes since that album with the silver cover. I didn't look it up, either, I'm sure you know which one I'm talking about. I'm a chess player. I have issues.

I probably exaggerated saying majority. A good amount of their music, at least a couple songs on each album, have chess references throughout the lyrics.

Neat, right?

I went on a deeper dive of the the guy who wrote the lyrics and While I was surprised at all the hits he wrote the last part was pretty intense about his personal life😧

But I believe ya about the chess references. But sometimes songs have unintended or intended meanings much like Madonna and the song like a prayer... You know the one about being on her knees
'When you call my name, It's like a little prayer, I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
