MP3 OF THE WEEK: Huey Lewis & The News – The Power Of Love mp3

“It don’t take money, don’t take fame, don’t need no credit card to ride this train, it’s strong and it’s sudden, it can be cruel sometimes, but it might just save your life”

‘The Power Of Love’ was one of two songs that Huey Lewis recorded for the Robert Zemeckis blockbuster ‘Back To The Future’.  It was the soundtrack to every 80s kid’s dream to skateboard like Michael J. Fox.  I can’t quite remember what motivated me to dig it out this week, but I’m glad I did.  Huey sucks in influences from every great showman like James Brown, Bruce Springsteen and Prince, wraps them up in a deliciously over-driven production and spits out a song that drips with Soul, Funk and Rock ‘n’ Roll energy.

  1. “The Power of Love” is a great summer record, then and now–and “Back in Time” is highly underrated. Thanks a lot.

  2. I’d like to gauge my ears now. Everyone is entitled their kooky faves though!

  3. Re xolondon: Whaaaaat? You disin The News?

    This from a man who’s just recomended a ‘Maroon 5’ album! That must be some kind of crime against humanity. Hee Hee.

    Can’t believe you got to interview Rufus! Not sure about his new album though, seems a bit dull when measured up to tracks like ‘Oh What A World’ and ‘April Fools’. I’ve tried to like it, perhaps I expected too much after the long wait.

  4. Are M5 the new Huey Lewis and The News?

    Rufus takes some getting used to, I do agree with that much. It’s much quieter than I expected.

  5. nice work please spread the truth about the Olympic 2012 false-flag terror attacks (huge LIES like 9/11 and 7/7) due to take place in london
