Harlequin is a rock band that formed in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in 1975. The band is best known for their hit singles “I Did It for Love”, “Thinking of You”, “Superstitious Feeling”, and “Innocence.”

In 1975, Winnipeg bassist Ralph James formed Harlequin upon recruiting vocalist George Belanger, guitarist Glen Willows, keyboardist Gary Golden, and drummer David Budzak. The band began recording demos and travelling to Toronto to perform in the local bars and clubs.

In 2006, the band was inducted into the Western Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the Western Canadian Music Awards.
