‘Perfect World’ by Huey Lewis – Classic Hit or Miss
The song was written by Alex Call, a former bandmate of Lewis and Sean Hopper from the band, Clover. Call had previously co-written the hit song “867-5309/Jenny” for Tommy Tutone. Huey Lewis gave the song a reggae flavor. The song is an optimistic commentary on a human being’s hopes and dreams,as well as our private thoughts.
The music video features the band playing on a stage in a garbage dump field, with various pieces of garbage flying in the air, hitting various members of the band. Throughout the video, Huey Lewis dances and strolls through a pathway as work is done by garbage trucks behind him. At the end of the video, the band is seen posing by more garbage. The video received heavy rotation on MTV
