As my supervisor at work says, "they had a few good tunes." If so, which ones??

Best line ever: Bobcat Golthwait, during a stand-up performance in the 80s: "You don't see Huey Lewis and go, 'hey, there's Huey Lewis, the famous rock star' - you see Huey Lewis and go, 'is that a friend of my dad's?"

Well, they could sing. Their a capella version of Curtis Mayfield's "It's All Right" was, um, all right.


Not saying much, though; it's pretty impossible to screw up such a great song.

Huey Lewis played harmonica with Thin Lizzy, and when the News finally broke big in the UK soon after Phil Lynott's death, Huey Lewis dedicated his first UK Grammy or MTV Award to Lynott at the gala show.

They have aged better than their contemporaries. Musically at least. And Huey Lewis flashed his tool in a Robert Altman film.

It was only a prosthetic tool. Lewis was afraid to show the genuine Heuy unit.

I saw a Making Of Short Cuts docu once, and it's actually a fake tool. It's not Huey's! For some reason I was disappointed when I saw that. "I Want A New Drug" was great, even if it was ripped off the far superior "Pop Muzik" by M.

I saw a thing about a "supergroupie" on TV once....I believe it was Connie something (she was supposedly the Sweet Sweet Connie of Grand Funk's We're an American Band)....anyway, she said in no uncertain terms that Huey's wang was of epic proportions, among the most notable of her conquests.

amen to "If This Is It", definitely one of the mega-hits I had in mind, but my mind kept referring to it as the one with the video with Huey on the beach with the News buried up to their necks in the sand bobbing their heads in unison whilst singing backup.

I had one other Huey Lewis and the News flashback.


I remember seeing a Behind the Music show about them, and they all talked about their love for classic R&B. And they showed a grainy videotape of one of their early shows, but the soundtrack played some twaddle from their first album (maybe even later, I forget). The band on videotape was jumping around like a bunch of pilled-up maniacs. I wanted to hear what they were playing - it clearly wasn't the song on the soundtrack. The juxtaposition left me thinking, "Geez, they LOOK like a great band - I wonder how badly these guys mellowed/sold out when they started recording?"

Did anyone here ever see Huey Lewis and the News in their pre-record-contract days? What were they like?

Rick Massimo, Wednesday, 21 January 2004 15:12 (fifteen years ago) link

Pleasant Plains (Pleasant Plains), Tuesday, 5 October 2004 18:54 (fourteen years ago) link

You know how in the out-groove of "Heart Of Rock 'n Roll" Huey shouts out a few key USA cities like "Cleveland!" and "Detroit!", right? Well, we Canadians were treated to a special radio version, with a perfunctory "Toronto!" and "Montreal!" dubbed on to the end. Made me feel special, even tho I still hate that song! But "Heart and Soul" and a couple of others from Sports are OK, and "I Want A New Drug" was good enough for Ray Parker Jr. to borrow, so I'll give 'em that much. As for Fore!, all I know are "Stuck With You" and "Hip To Be Square", and those are better left forgotten (I wish.)

Huey was also quite humble and personable on their Behind The Music ... basically admitting they were nothing more than a good bar band that somehow got big.

plays harmonica on Thin Lizzy's Live and Dangerous, so therefore classic before he even had the News. But yeah, some good songs, seem nice, etc. Doesn't deserve the Bret Easton Ellis irockistry.

From I Love Vinyl What's On Your Turntable Now thread (where I just posted a picture of Picture This from '82):

that's the one w/ "Do You Believe in Love"? great song

― Stormy Davis, Sunday, May 30, 2010 8:42 PM (38 minutes ago)

"Workin' For A Livin'" and "Only One" (total hard-popping Lynott/ Boomtown Rats-style boys-on-the-street reminscence rock) are even better. And lots of Side One reminds me that Huey + News were marketed as a new wave powerpop band at first, and Huey's old band Clover backed up *My Aim Is True* -- very audible early Joe Jackson influence.

― xhuxk, Sunday, May 30, 2010 9:19 PM (2 minutes ago)

Really need to find a cheap copy of the debut LP one of these days (1980, didn't chart at all - and they look very Boomtown Rats on the cover of that one, iirc.)

A ILM formatting question: As I'm in the presence of somebody who actually knows how to do this, on "New Poll" in the section "I Love Music Poll Options: Enter all options, delimited by new lines" --- what are "new lines"? Does that mean just hit the return key to put different options on different lines, or do you type some kind of lines between the options?

Vic Perry, Monday, 16 July 2012 19:01 (seven years ago) link

It just means "hit return"
basically, if you took this post as an example, it would have 4 poll options

the third one would be blank

Huey's appearance on WTF is actually pretty good, and clued me in to the fact that the first thing he and The News ever recorded was done as a joke that a record label actually ended up liking. I bring you Exodisco:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vut4dxua9wo

Johnny Fever, Monday, 6 May 2013 19:56 (six years ago) link

six years pass...

The floor of one room at the Power Station recording studio is littered with inflated plastic globes, bunched up like beach balls between two tall black speakers.

From those speakers comes the soft hum of a synthesizer, like the rising buzzing of a bee, sharply sliced by the sting of a funky, brass-accented beat.

The small crowd of listeners in the room start bobbing heads and bouncing legs. But all are a bit surprised by this song -- and those in zydeco, reggae, ska and jazz styles that follow -- because the album they're listening to at this preview session is Small World, the latest release from Huey Lewis and the News, due in record stores this week. The plastic globes are promotional props illustrating the album's title.

Lewis and his band have become one of the most successful American rock acts of the 1980s with their past two albums, Sports (1983) and Fore (1985), selling more than 15 million copies worldwide.

They have achieved that success with wry and rhythmic hits such as "Stuck With You" and "Hip to Be Square." But the News' chart-topping sound has never been considered particularly hip -- until now.

Just ask the band's longtime manager, Bob Brown, who's attending this studio session. "I'm not a rah, rah guy," says Brown, conceding the News' previous LP, Fore was a bit too conventional even for his tastes.

But Small World is a big musical leap forward for Lewis and the News -- one the band hopes won't fly over the heads of its existing fans. The album takes its listeners on a joyful jaunt of varied musical styles, guided by the News' compass, which has never failed them before.

Obviously, during their extensive world tour of 1986-87, Lewis and his pals did something in their off hours besides play golf. Small World was largely inspired, Lewis has said, by the nightclubbing the band did on the European leg of their tour.

They rediscovered the influence of Caribbean rhythms and the American jazz resurgence that are changing the sound of pop overseas and here as well.

Both influences shape the title track "Small World," which is split into two parts that open and close the album's first side. The smooth syncopated beat of "Small World (Part One)" is the first hint of what's to come. The song's lyrical idea is simple but earnest: "If we all give a little/ it could really help a lot/ it's a small world/ but it's the only one we've got."

However, "Small World (Part Two)" is the real surprise and treat. One of two instrumental tracks on the album, it features a cool and lovely tenor saxophone solo by jazz vet Stan Getz that's bound to win the News a place on jazz stations for the first time.

Another guest musician, Bruce Hornsby, brings zydeco-style accordion riffs to "Old Antone's," a party tune straight from New Orleans' French Quarter sung by Lewis in fractured Franglais.

The question this album may raise is whether the News are trendy newcomers to the styles they explore here. But one of the first tunes recorded for the LP, "Bobo Tempo," was written by Lewis with members of his previous band, Clover, in 1975. It's a smoky, lilting reggae vamp complete with snapping harmonica lines blown in unison with the Tower of Power horn section who do ace brass work throughout.

"Perfect World," the album's first single, also has links to Lewis' past. It was written by Alex Call, another Clover alumnus.

"I actually found that song in a little club in Mill Valley Lewis' hometown in California's Marin County, said Brown. "Alex was playing it one night when I walked in and I couldn't get it out of my head."

With a Caribbean ska beat, accented once again by those tremendous Tower horns, "Perfect World" is a perfect mix of familiar pop and exotic rhythms. The song talks brightly of keeping faith and dreams even though, as Lewis sings, there "ain't no livin' in a perfect world." True to their wry image, the band plays the song in its video version on a clean pastel stage -- placed in the middle of a Marin County garbage landfill.

Another contrast, between music and lyric, makes "Walking with the Kid" another delight. With growling guitar lines from Chris Hayes, the song sounds at first like the tale of two street toughs. But listen again; it's Lewis walking in the park on a Sunday with his young son, tackling, as he sings at one point, "Walking 101."

A soft and sweet reggae beat runs through two love songs which follow, "World to Me" and "Better Be True." Both also display the News' affection for the harmony singing of '50s R&B; and '60s soul music so evident on their earlier LPs.

"Give Me the Keys (And I'll Drive You Crazy) races away with the beat but what's notable here is that, with the punch and shining solos of the Tower of Power horn section, Lewis and the band make almost no musical concessions to '80s pop tastes. This is a brassy arrangement that could have been written 20 years ago -- and doesn't sound a bit dated.

Nor does "Slammin'," a funky guitar, organ and horn jazz jam in a Memphis mode that may well be one of the year's surprise dance hits. It supports Brown's assertion of the News' ability: "They're more than just a 4/ 4 rock band," he says.

After the massive sales of their two previous LPs, it was clearly time for Huey Lewis and the News to take some chances. Small World is a gamble for these guys -- but one with a rewarding musical payoff for the fans.
