Five singles reached the Top 20 and it marked their commercial peak. 1984 was the year of album blockbusters. “Thriller”, “Born In The USA” and “Purple Rain” dominated the album charts, but “Sports” still managed the second-most sales for the whole year. Amidst all these superstars, Huey Lewis seemed refreshingly normal, making it possible for a wide audience to relate to him. Few albums signified the period it was born in as well as this one.
