“The Power Of Love” (Huey Lewis & The News Cover) (Live On A.V. Club Undercover)

    The Hold Steady covers Huey Lewis & The News

    Being that they are America’s pre-eminent bar band, it makes sense that the Hold Steady would be able to turn even super cheese like Huey Lewis & the News’ “The Power of Love” into a song that would go down well between beers 14 and 15. The Minnesota group does just that in this video for A.V. Undercover, covering “The Power Of Love” without any synths, and in a talk-sing form that should be familiar to anyone who has heard 15 seconds of Hold Steady. It’s not exactly the best, but I’d take this over half of Heaven is Whenever.
