You know, I think, we can post the different songs by Huey Lewis & The News in usual "Rate the song above..." thread - is a pure pop-rock, sometimes is more "rock", and sometimes it doesn't (depending on the nature of the song). But all in all - they are very talented, and pretty underrated, IMO. Huey and The News music - it's more, than just "Power of Love". They have many great songs (personally, I always loved their positive, optimistic attitude).I get confused when I want to post a band like Huey Lewis and the News or a similar band that could be classified as Pop Rock or New Wave. Which thread do I put this in?
It seems like they belong in the rock thread since like you said, the OP stated everything related to rock goes in there. However, it seems like such a jarring transition from the hard rock songs that usually get posted.
I didn't immediately understand Culture Club's music, but now I understand what makes their style so attractive. It fits the ear well. Really relaxing sounding. 8/10.
