Billboard #1 Hits: #622: ‘ Jacob’s Ladder’- Huey Lewis And The News. March 14, 1987. #1 for 1 week in Billboard Hot 100.

  • Single: ‘Jacob’s Ladder’- Huey Lewis And The News
  • Record Company- Chrysalis/ EMI
  • Genre: Rock
  • Written by Bruce Hornsby and John Hornsby
  • Time: 3:33
  • B-side: ‘The Heart Of Rock And Roll’ [live]
  • Album- Fore!
  • Grade: B
  • Peaked at #1 1 week in Billboard Hot 100.

This #1 was written by Bruce Hornsby and his brother John Hornsby- and was meant for the Hornsby album that Lewis was producing. Hornsby didn’t care for the recording and instead of releasing it suggested it to Lewis- and of course you know the rest- it becomes Lewis’s 3rd #1 hit. One of Lewis’s better ones. I have called Huey Lewis the ‘King Of Pedestrian Rock’ over the years but in looking over his list of hit singles I can’t say that there is any single one that I would give below a C. I don’t hate any of them. Just not a big fan. Huey Lewis seems like a guy it would be hard to work up a dislike for.
