Make-a one man weep, make another man sing
fukkin' rawkHuey Lewis and the News
: "The Power of Love"
I moved to San Francisco for two reasons- my suspicion that Huey Lewis and the News are/were from here, and the burritos. The first tape I ever remember owning was the Back to the Future soundtrack. My dad went on TDY (don't know what that stands for, but it's the equivalent of a business trip in the military), and inexplicably gave it to me as a gift upon his return. It was the tradition to receive something interesting from the far off realms. It's how I found out about nutella, years upon years before it was sold in the US. See, this process made a lot more sense when he went to Turkey or something like that, but this time he gave me a cassette tape. It is precisely at this moment that I'm thinking maybe we went TDY to the Bay Area and the souvenir was the Huey Lewis-centric soundtrack.
Sure enough, I was soon air-shredding both the guitar AND the sax to the Huey Lewis jams on the soundtrack, and Huey Lewis quickly became my favorite band, to be usurped by GNR a few years later.
