Music: Huey Lewis and the News
"Their early work was a little too New Wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically."
Patrick Bateman, American Psycho

Huey Lewis and the News is a band from The Eighties fronted by Huey Lewis. Back in the 1980s, they had many hits and were reasonably adept with making music videos. Now, they are often forgotten even by shows waxing nostalgic over The Eighties, but remain a popular live act.

Some of their work remains in the popular consciousness, though it isn't always consciously attributed to them. They recorded "Hip to Be Square," which made the soundtrack of American Psycho the movie and was rather frantically analyzed by Patrick Bateman in that film. They also did "The Power of Love" and "Back in Time," both from Back to the Future.

Not to be confused with Hewys Animated Movie Reviews.
