Sports by Huey Lewis and the News


Play on Napster
As instantly likable as Huey Lewis and the News was, it was only a matter of time before their everyday-Joe rock took off with the masses, and Sports was the album that did it. Their formula is ingeniously simple: Lewis sings in a raspy, easy-to-understand tenor about universal themes (with occasional drug references); the band lays back into midtempo bar-band rock; the hooks are huge and bluesy and easy to swallow. If you don't know every word to half the mainstream radio singalongs on this album, you were probably living under CBGB for a good portion of the '80s.
