Main Question or Discussion Point

I know that simple harmonic motion is a type of periodic motion where the restorative force is directly proportional to the displacement so that the time evolution is sinusoidal but is there such a thing as just harmonic motion? 0r is harmonic motion just short for simple harmonic motion?
