Song of the Week 5/21/13

With another week comes another song of the week and today we honor a milestone in a band’s career. Last week Huey Lewis and the News’s album “Sports” celebrated it’s 30 year anniversary. The special two disc release features the original track list remastered as well as live performances of all of the songs. “Sports” reached number one on the Billboard charts in 1983 and had a hand in the band’s success in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. The band has continued to make music and tour around the United States. All in all they have achieved 19 top ten singles. For all the latest news check out their website and you can download “Sports 30th Anniversary Edition” on iTunes now.

It was difficult to pick which song from this album should be rewarded song of the week, so I went with the practical choice. After all, it’s been 30 years since the release of “Sports” and it’s evident that “The Heart of Rock & Roll” is indeed still beating. So push play and listen as Huey Lewis tells you about Rock & Roll while The News keeps the beat.
