Philadelphia-based indie popsters Jukebox the Ghost (we’ve seriously run out of band names, folks) recently finished a tour in support of their strong second album, Everything Under The Sun. In amongst their own bright, piano-driven pop tunes, they included this, ahem, ‘80s gem: the theme from Back to the Future, Huey Lewis and the News’ “The Power of Love.”

Sure, you like to pretend that you’re too cool for it, but listen to the track below and try not to tap your feet and feel good. Just try. Oh, and check out the other ’80s blockbuster musical reference during the interlude. (via NYCTaper)

  1. Hilarious. Donald’s nephew Huey sued Ray Parker Jr. for sampling his band’s beat – awesome.
