"The Power Of Love" as written by Barry Melcon Tashian, Holly Tashian and Pamela Brown Hayes....
The power of love is a curious thing
Make a one man weep, make another man sing
Change a heart to a little white dove
More than a feeling, that's the power of love

Tougher than diamonds, whips like cream
Stronger and harder than a bad girls dream
Make a bad one good, mmm make a wrong right
Power of love will keep you home at night

Don't need money, don't take fame
Don't need no credit card to ride this train
It's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimes
But it might just save your life
That's the power of love
That's the power of love

First time you feed it might make you sad
Next time you feed it might make you mad
But you'll be glad baby when you've found
That's the power that makes the world go round

Don't need money, don't take fame
Don't need no credit card to ride this train
It's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimes
But it might just save your life

They say that all in love is fair
Yeah but you don't care
But you know what to do
When it gets hold of you
And with a little help from above
You feel the power of love
You feel the power of love
Can you feel it?

Don't take money, don't take fame
Don't need no credit card to ride this train
Tougher than diamonds and stronger than steel
You won't feel it until you feel
You feel the power, feel the power of love
That's the power, that's the power of love
You feel the power of love
You feel the power of love
You feel the power of love

    General CommentThe Back to the Future trilogy are definitely my favourite movies. This song always reminds me of BTTF.. I think this song is playing when Marty is skateboarding to school because he's late? Haha.

    Anyway, This song is awesome. My dad used to play it a lot when I was a kid. It's such a happy song. It always puts me in a good mood.

    General CommentI'm all Philled out. The 80's were truly a time where music was cheesy and cheesy was right. The decade and artists didn't take themselves too seriously. It was a time were liberalism started to fade and the new age that began was just weird, pointless but fun. People started to come into their own and that's where the anything does type thing began. Huey gots us pumped and live with this powerful, powering tune. Power of love is one of the best groove tunes there is and the meaning is irrelevant. Just a good song to jam, too.

    General CommentThe song is pretty self-explanatory. It's about how impactful love can be and it talks about the advantages and disadvantages of love, how falling in love is more than a feeling (That's what the song "More Than a Feeling" by "Boston" is about.), how love can change someone's life like it can change someone from being a very bad person to a really good person, how you don't need to be rich or popular to impress a girl, and how it wouldn't cost you anything to fall in love! This is has got to Huey Lewis' signature song!
