Do You Believe in Love?

Postby No You Are » Wed Aug 15, 2007 5:15 am

Rumor has it that the LWs are appearing on a comp honoring one of my favorite childhood bands... Huey Lewis and the News

http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/news/44732-my-brightest-diamond-long-winters-apostle-of-hustle-cover-huey-lewis

I would say that is a perfect time for the Longhorns to make an appearance.

Fore! is probably the second-best tape ever, behind DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince: He's the DJ I'm the Rapper.

BTW, if they ever make a tribute to THAT, I say the LW's do either Brand New Funk or Charlie Mack:The first out the Limo.

Yes.

I wonder if John or Eric sang the falsetto vocals on the chorus.

this news spawned a whole discussion with my husband about Huey Lewis' level of street cred (in short it went something like: me: cred? not so much, him: just because they dress up like dorks, doesn't mean their music is dorky, me: hm, I think perhaps it does).

I posted this same thing on the Centro-matic list, where it was answered by an essay on HL&tN which ended with a big thumbs up for the song Hip To Be Square. Which I think as a dorky song as ever there was, so I rest my case.

having said that, their songs do stick in your head like mad, they are very effective.

my father-in-law thought "I want a new drug" was "I want a new truck".

To this day, I get a little chill when I'm in Santa Cruz and pass the exact spot where the whole band got buried in the sand for the "If This is It" video.

I think LW should cover "Walking on a Thin Line". Quality pathos.

I'd like to see TLW harmonize, also incorporate harmonica and do "Workin' For A Livin'"...
I'd also like to see Eric Corson in a sharkskin jacket, Ray-Bans, and a cigarette hanging from his mouth...

I can't remember that guy's name, but I DO remember that his first band was called "Cement Flavored Typewriter".

Ok, that's it. I'm done embarrassing myself on this one.
