Subject: Quarterflash - Poll

Written By: whistledog on 03/22/13 at 5:45 pm

Quarterflash are often (incorrectly) included in one hit wonder lists.  In fact, they charted 7 songs into the US Hot 100.  You may not know all of these, but if you listened to the radio, you should will recognize atleast 3 of these (If you saw the movie Night Shift, then you should recognize 4)

I have to go with Harden My Heart. Brings back memories of another place another time (which is not necessarily good.  :-\\ )

Being a BIG fan of the film Night Shift, I probably should select its title track, but I went with Take Me to Heart.  I've enjoyed that song ever since I can remember

I also enjoyed the non charting single Walking On Ice from their Back Into Blue album.

It's a toss up between "Take me to heart" & "Harden my heart".  (will flip a coin to vote) 
I also like "Right kind of love".

One of the members of Quarterflash on their first two albums was Jack Charles.  He was a guitarist and sang lead on several songs.  However, all of the songs he sang lead on were album tracks only.  I often wondered if he left Quarterflash because his role in the band was not really heard

Walking On Ice is a new one for me, first I've heard it. Not bad.   
Take me to heart is a very good song, and I like the film "Night Shift" too. Michael Keaton was a riot.

Harden My Heart

That's the only one I know...so once again, I will have a biased vote.
