Music Video/Song

"Harden My Heart" by QuarterFlash - 

In this song, the singer finds the strength to leave her man, and is determined to do it without getting squishy. It was a regional hit in the Pacific Northwest when the group called itself Seafood Mama. After a shuffling of the lineup and a name change to Quarterflash, the reissued single became a US Top 5 hit.
 
Quarterflash took its name from an Australian slogan: "a quarter flash and three parts foolish."
 
Something you don't see too often: a female lead singer who also plays the saxophone part. Rindy Ross from Quarterflash did just that on this song and their follow up single "Find Another Fool."
 
Released the same year MTV went on the air, the video contains many random images that have nothing to do with the song, including jugglers, a little person, a makeup table in the dessert, well-dressed guys on motorcycles, and a sax solo in the rain. It was fairly common in the early '80s to throw lots of disjointed scenes into the videos in an attempt to create a memorable image.
