Privacy is a huge concern nowadays, and it’s easy to see why. There are so many reasons for keeping your personal life private that it would be impossible to list them all. One of the most common reasons people want privacy is because they don’t like being judged by other people.
Huey Lewis and The News have been around since 1980, and their music has had an impact on our culture ever since then. They were one of the first bands to experiment with hip hop, rock, funk, soul and punk influences in their music which led to them being pioneers in American pop music. People go crazy when they hear “The Power Of Love” or “Walking On A Thin Line,” but do you know what Huey Lewis and The News songs also show a lot of love?
Huey Lewis’ song “Heart And Soul” proves that he has many classically-oriented loves. It was written by the band’s saxophonist, Jerry Hey, in collaboration with Huey himself. This particular song is about someone who has been given so much and doesn’t know what to do with it all because they don’t feel deserving enough or worthy of the good fortune bestowed upon them.
The next time you’re feeling down on yourself or like your life isn’t going as planned give yourself some support from this beautiful ballad!
Ok, you know how I mentioned earlier that it just kind of happened? Well here’s what really happened. It turns out the guys had been playing one-off shows around town for months and word got back to me through a friend who was there.
I remember this moment so vividly because I was sitting on my couch with my laptop open in front of me researching some new places to visit when they popped up on Facebook and said “playing at ______ tonight.” Obviously, not going is not an option so off I went! And now we’re friends. The end.
The thing about Huey Lewis and the News is that their music has always made people happy no matter where or why you were listening to them as long as
The Huey Lewis and the News sound is unmistakable. And it’s something they created themselves, on their first album “American Heartbeat.” It was an homage to classic rock of the 60’s that gave them a distinctive “sound” when it came out in 1982.
You can hear some of those influences in songs like “Don’t You Want Me,” which sounds very reminiscent of The Beatles’ Let It Be era mixed with Police-esque guitar riffs from Stewart Copeland who also played drums for The Police. If you listen closely enough, you’ll notice how much these guys loved everything about pop music–including disco (check out “Heart and Soul”) and folk tunes (“Restless”). *The following content is not yet final and will be edited to include more useful information.
This blog post discusses the importance of Huey Lewis and the News in pop music history, from their beginnings as a high school band playing cover songs for proms and parties to how they created their own signature sound on “American Heartbeat.”
The article includes quotes by members of The News such as Johnny Colla who said that when he first heard one of his songs played on the radio it was like winning an Oscar or Grammy award because “it’s harder than ever these days to get people’s attention with what we do. And we have very little power over where our records are sold now too … It seems there wasn
I could have loved you. I wanted to love you, but it wasn’t enough. It’s not that the feelings weren’t genuine or real; they were just too strong in one direction for me to deal with them. My heart burned like a white-hot fire and I didn’t know what else was left of my life without you next to me – even if we couldn’t be together as much as either of us wanted (which was all the time).
But there are plenty more fish in the sea, right? That’s what everyone told me when I confessed how difficult this break up had been on me and now they’re telling my sister who is going through something similar… Seems like every generation has their song about these.
