Pandering to America: Huey Lewis and James Brown List Cities

Sick Burns!: An 80's Podcast

There's nothing a big stadium concert crowd loves more than hearing the name of their city shouted by their favorite rock star. In the 80's, a few performers figured out how to work the names of many U.S. cities into hit songs, in what can only be described as pandering to audiences hungry for recognition of their American hometowns. In 1984, Huey Lewis and the News had a hit with "Heart of Rock & Roll," which worked 15 cities into a top-10 hit. In 1985, the Godfather of Soul James Brown made it to number four-- and scored a Grammy-- with  "Living in America," squeezing in nine mentions. The song is also well remembered for being a breakout hit from the movie "Rocky IV." We break down both songs with our 21st-century lens. ***AND*** Visit our website at www.sickburnspodcast.com to leave a comment or a voicemail!

Huey Lewis Talking Sports and "Sports"

Just Not Sports

When it's time to talk sports, you call the guy who recorded "Sports," the album. HUEY LEWIS is an icon of rock and pop culture, but he's also a huge sports fan. So we go deep on his love of San Francisco teams, which 49ers Hall of Famers sang on "Hip to Be Square," the time he got busted on the sideline during Monday Night Football, getting called out for talking golf during "We Are the World," and why he started letting Chris Berman sing with the band. Plus, we break down his latest album "Weather," and get an update on his ongoing battle to repair his hearing and get back on stage. Then, Gareth and Brad bust out their all-time '80s music mix tapes ... because, of course they did.
