Huey Lewis and the News version[edit]Edit

Huey Lewis and the News' version was released as the first single from the album Sports in 1983. The single peaked at number 8 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 that November and at the number one position on the Billboard Top Tracks chart.

The music video featured Lewis looking for, and leaving with, a woman in a dance club, with Lewis concert footage spliced in.

Reception[edit]Edit

Former bandmember Chris Hayes remarks about the song, "I don't know why HEART & SOUL sounds so good. Usually we have to re-do all the guitar parts - this time it worked out the first time. I had a Marshall amp in a tiny room, played my Les Paul and it was great!"[1]
