80s Soundtracks

I was listening to a little Steve Winwood yesterday. I only have two songs of his on my iPod, and it circled through both of them on repeat several times before I realized it. I suppose part of that is that the music is easy to ignore, but the other part is that the songs sound exactly the same. I neglected to mention that I was listening to these songs in the gym, and on one of the gym TVs there were playing the original Back to the Future film. I watched it without sound for a bit, and thought back to the fantastic Huey Lewis & The News soundtrack. And, for the first time, it occurred to me that there was more than one Huey Lewis song on that soundtrack. These guys in the mid-80s found a sound and stuck with it.
