"Leave It" is a song by English rock band Yes. It appears on their 1983 album, 90125.
It was the second song from that album to be released as a single.
The song peaked at number 24 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 3 on the Top Album Rock Tracks chart.
The song is the second track on the album's second side, with the song "Cinema" serving as a form of prelude.
The music video (directed by Godley and Creme) shows the band standing while going through video-created abstract effects. It was one of the first music videos to utilize computer-generated imagery. Eighteen different variations of the video were made (the first one, for instance, simply had the band upside-down, but motionless for the whole song), with the eleventh one chosen as the "standard" version, and has remained the "official" video. A half-hour documentary on the making of the video was broadcast on MTV in 1984. Also, a marathon showing all eighteen videos, one after the other, was also shown on MTV.
