I like his work also, especially "The Power Of Love" and "Back In Time" from the "Back To The Future" soundtrack.

I also liked "If This Is It", the video for which helped to provide a great sight gag in the movie "Amazon Women On The Moon".

Sincerely,

John Kilduff

And I have a soft spot for "Heart of Rock and Roll," even if the heartbeat effects you hear at the beginning and end of the song can be a little creepy.

And while we're on the matter of Huey, what do you think, do you think "Ghostbusters" really was directly copied from "I Want a New Drug?" I think it's close, but not enough of a match.

Oh my gosh I LLLLOOOOVVVEEE HUEY LEWIS!!!! I saw him in concert a few years ago and it was one the best concerts I have ever been to. He may be pushing 60 but that man can still move! He has one of the best butts ever! He jumps of the stage platforms he has tons of energy and all of his songs are pretty much great! I love Huey!!! [Big Grin] He is excellent!!!

You think he has a nice rear end? I don't think I should say any more...

Incidentally, he also lucked out in getting his solo in We Are the World; Prince was going to sing the line "But if you just believe there's no way we can fall," but failed to show up, so Huey ended up with it.

I guess my username should at least kinda give it away. [Wink]

Not only that, but I'm from the Bay Area, so in a way, always felt even more "connected" to his music if that makes any sense. Quite a few of his videos had San Francisco/Bay Area-type locations and references.

The Sports album is my fave (song and video-wise, "If This is It" is probably the best) but I like everything pre-1994 that he did. [Big Grin]

I love Hip To Be Square, even though I thought he was singing in Hit the B square.

Anybody see the episode of Just Shoot Me where he and David Spade and were in a air guitar band together. CC Deville (from Poison) has a small part near the end. He's one of the people sitting at the bar.
