From a first single in 1979, the group successfully combined a pop rock and power pop (and sometimes, a blues rock) influenced backing with harmony side-vocals and Lewis’ strident voice, and the band had numerous hit songs during the 1980s and early 1990s. These include “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” (both of which were featured in the film “Back to the Future”), “I Want a New Drug”, “Doin’ It All (For My Baby)”, “Do You Believe in Love?” “Hip to Be Square”, “Stuck With You”, and “Jacob’s Ladder”. Huey Lewis shared three Grammy awards, an American Music Award, and a People’s Choice Award along with several artists for his role singing the 1985 charity song “We Are the World” as well.
