Harlequin were so great. I really miss them [:(]

I grew up with their songs like 'Survive', 'I Did it For Love' and 'Thinking of You'. They were just excellent! [:)]

"One foot back in your door" was a really good song that i had forgotten about till i saw it in your list. I had that cassette back in the mid eighties. Was the name of the album "All fired up"? I can't remember if that was a song or the album name.

The album was called Fire Me Up, but the song originally appeared on the 1984 soundtrack to the film 'Teachers' [:)]

Some Trivia. The lyric in the song that goes "I'm your non-stop miracle, i'm your man" was used by Billy Ocean in his 1988 hit 'Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car'
