Soundtrack Thursday #40

Today’s soundtrack selection goes to:

The Power of Love’ – Huey Lewis and the News

Film: Back to the Future

Time for some 80s throwback to one of the best films ever made, Back to the Future.

Back to the Future has always been a childhood favourite of mine and Huey Lewis and the News captured the energetic spirit of the film with ‘The Power of Love’.  As the song to kick start the film, it becomes the signature theme for Marty McFly as he races through Hill Valley to get to school.  It’s a song so memorable, you can never forget it and that momentum is maintained throughout the entire film.

What do you love about the track?  Share below.
