Glorious Ladies of Rocktober Song #7: "The Warrior" by Scandal

This Hair Band Friday Glorious Ladies of Rocktober offering comes to us from '80s rockers Scandal.  The band, fronted by Patty Smythe (not to be confused with Patti Smith), put out an EP and an album in the early '80s before breaking up.  While I wouldn't necessarily consider them a hair band, some of their songs come close enough, and everyone's favorite hair band cover band, Hairbangers Ball, used to cover "The Warrior," so that's good enough for me.

"The Warrior" is by far the band's most successful song, reaching #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1984.  And the video is a nice little nugget of '80s nostalgia.
