Huey Lewis and his band were never massively successful in Great Britain, but they did manage three Top 40 hits during the 80s - four if you include The Power Of Love which charted twice.
Hip To Be Square was the follow-up single to the U.S. chart-topper Stuck With You (reached #12 in the UK) and was the second and last track to be released as a single from the album Fore! The song reached #3 in America, but, surprisingly, only charted at #41 here in the UK despite plenty of airplay.
Fore! sounds very American, which is, perhaps, the reason the British didn't warm to the band. It has a very clean, polished sound and is packed with high quality songs. In fact, the album has a production quality that seems to be missing from a lot of today's music. If you like light rock and pop then there is much to like here, but don't excpect anything ground-breaking or innovative. The band didn't set out to push boundaries, but simply created decent, catchy songs.
