"Harden My Heart" by Quarterflash.

OK, more 80's: This popular sax-heavy Portland, OR pop/rock band was formed in '80 through a fusion between Seafood Mama and Pilot. Unusual in that Rindy Ross, their lead singer, was also their very able sax player. Their biggest hit was a Marv Ross composition recorded in '81 which peaked at #3 in early '82. One of the 1st videos on the then-new MTV. Considered by many to be one of the best break-up songs ever. Band? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "It's Impossible" ("Somos Novios") by Perry Como. Even though the English translation has nothing to do with Manzanero's original lyrics, they're still both great romantic tunes. Manzanero doesn't have the greatest voice BUT his romantic ballads are so fabulous that he still pulls it off.
