I Want A New Drug – Huey Lewis & The News – Pop/Rock/80s – 1983

Working on this one as a potential new song for my local cover band “Retroflection“. As a bonus, when you learn this song, you have actually learned 2 songs. That’s the claim Huey Lewis made in his lawsuit against Ray Parker Jr and his smash “Ghostbusters”, which came out the following year in 1984. Huey is right. The songs are shockingly similar.

Details of the settlement are confidential. Glad they worked it out.

I’m using a 2021 Sire Marcus Miller V7 2nd Gen Fretless Jazz Bass + Fender Rumble Stage 800 amp. DI out direct to GarageBand.
