Huey Lewis & The News - The Power Of Love (Official Video from the film "Back To The Future")


Huey Lewis & The News “The Power Of Love” Official Video, featuring “Doc” Brown (Christopher Lloyd) from the film Back To The Future. Remastered in HD.




"The Power of Love" is a 1985 single by Huey Lewis and the News, written for and featured in the 1985 blockbuster film Back to the Future.


The song appears early in Back to the Future as Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) skateboards to school. Later in the film, McFly and his band play a hard rock version of the song for a Battle of the Bands audition (at which a character played by Huey Lewis himself is judging and tells Marty's group that they are "just too darn loud") and later when Marty returns to his neighborhood.


In the sequel, Back to the Future Part II, the 2015 version of Marty attempts to play the song on his guitar just after being fired but ends up playing it very poorly due to his damaged hand from his 1985 accident with a Rolls-Royce. Finally, it can be briefly heard playing in the car where Needles and his buddies are driving when Needles challenges Marty to the fate-determining car race near the end of Back to the Future Part III.





Lyrics


The power of love is a curious thing

Make a one man weep, make another man sing

Change a hawk to a little white dove

More than a feeling that's the power of love


Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream

Stronger and harder than a bad girl's dream

Make a bad one good make a wrong one right

Power of love that keeps you home at night


[Chorus 1:]

You 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 feel it, it might make you sad

Next time you feel it it might make you mad

But you'll be glad baby when you've found

That's the power makes the world go'round


[Chorus 2:]

And it don't take money, don't take fame

Don't need no credit card to ride this train

It's strong and it's sudden it can be 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'll 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?

Hmmm


[Chorus 3:]

It don't take money and it 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 nothin' till you feel

You feel the power, just 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

Feel the power of love
