Musical Interlude: Harden My Heart (1982)

Quarterflash wasn't really meant to be a one-hit wonder, but, as history shows us, that was exactly their fate, as the band couldn't match the success of their first top 40 hit, "Harden My Heart", in 1982. I believe I had read that lead vocalist-saxophonist Rindy Ross and her guitarist-husband, Marv, were also school teachers in the Portland, Oregon area around the time they formed the band. Judging from the fact that Rindy spends most of the video dressed in leotards & tights, running through a maze of doorways, I'd wager a guess she may have been a physical education teacher.
