Google/Bing Question of the Day: How Many Top 40 Hits Did Huey Lewis and the News Have?

The 1980s band Huey Lewis and the News is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of their biggest-selling album "Sports," which featured "I Wanna New Drug," "Heart and Soul" and "The Heart of Rock N Roll," by touring North America.

So, we decided to ask one of the major search engines (we don't play favorites here, well......I guess there are times when we do): How Many Top 40 Hits Did Huey Lewis and the News Have"?

As it turns out the San Francisco-based band had 16 top 40 hits, including three number-one songs: "Jacob's Ladder," "The Power of Love" and "Stuck with You," none of which were on "Sports."

Huey Lewis and the News are now swinging through the east coast. They play at Wolf Trap in Vienna, Va., just outside of Washington, DC, tomorrow night. Their competition will be '80s new wave pop singer Adam Ant ("Goody Two Shoes") who will be playing at the 9:30 Club in the nation's capital.

The band then plays Atlantic City, NJ, (Aug. 16th), Nashville, Tenn. (Aug. 25th) and Boston (aug. 28th).
