80s Music Video Flashback

Huey Lewis & The News - "Heart and Soul"

Huey Lewis and the News - an American rock band based in San Francisco, California. They had a run of hit singles during the 1980s and early 1990s, eventually scoring a total of 19 Top Ten singles across the Billboard Hot 100, Adult Contemporary and Mainstream Rock Charts. Their greatest success was in the 1980s with the No. 1 album, Sports, coupled with a series of highly successful MTV videos.

Sports slowly became a number-one hit in 1984 and multi-platinum success in 1985, thanks to the band's frequent touring and a series of clever, funny videos that received heavy MTV airplay. Four singles from the album reached the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 - one of them was "Heart and Soul" (No. 8) - which was also their first No. 1 single on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The album has sold over 10 million copies to date in the U.S. alone.
