Quarterflash is an American rock group formed in 1980 in Portland, Oregon. Years active 1980–1985; 1990–present. The group was formed by merging two popular Oregon bands, Seafood Mama and Pilot, A year later they were signed by Geffen Records and released their self-titled debut album Quarterflash in September 1981

The band was originally made up of the two current members, Rindy Ross (lead vocals and saxophone) and her husband Marv Ross (guitars), along with Jack Charles (guitars), Rick DiGiallonardo (keyboards/synthesizers), Rich Gooch (electric bass), and Brian David Willis (drums and percussion). Having a lead singer who also played the saxophone made Quarterflash notable. In a 1982 interview, Rindy Ross said that she viewed the saxophone as an extension of her voice, enabling her to express things she could not express with her voice alone.

Lyrics ʻʻValerieʼʼ

I didn’t have a chance in art school
You offered to help this poor fool
And I was more than pleased
That you had taken me under your wing
And during those first encounters
I sensed a curious power
But I was ill equipped
To understand your subtle hints

Oh Valerie!
Oh! I never thought it would go this far
Oh Valerie-hee!
I never thought it would go-o-o-o this far

I never suspected your intentions
When you showed unusual affection
But when you kissed my cheek
My world collapsed my knees went weak
That moment just made no sense
I lost my nerve and innocence
I turned and ran away
I’ll never understand that day

Oh Valerie!
Oh! I never thought it would go this far
Oh Valerie-hee!
I never thought it would go-o-o-o this far

It’s so easy to see now
You dropped a thousand clues
But no matter which way I turn I’ve something to lose
Something to lose!

Oh Valerie!
Oh! I never thought it would go this far
Oh Valerie-hee!
I never thought it would go-o-o-o this far

The last I saw of Valerie
She was followed in the school’s art gallery
By some aspiring soul
I hope she understands her role
Still stumped in my confusion
With one last innocent illusion
I’ve got just this to say
I wish there had been an easier way

Oh-ho! Valerie
I never thought it would go this far
Oh Valerie-hee!
I never thought it would go- whoah-o-o-o!
Oh Valerie!
Oh! I never thought it would go this far
Oh Valerie-hee!
I never thought it would go this far
