This is a fun soundtrack! Of course, it's really the Huey Lewis and the News show here, "Power of Love" was huge for them. It's a great 80's anthem that became synonymous with Back to the Future. Marty's high school band did a version of the song as their audition in the beginning of the movie, of course leading to Huey Lewis himself, in the role of a high school official, cutting them off by telling them the were just "too loud". A funny, sort of meta moment that really helped drive this song into your head after watching the opening sequence that played the real version.

Also by Huey Lewis and the News is "Back in Time". This is a good song, overshadowed by "Power of Love", and it became more iconic a few years later when it was used in a Saturday Night Live skit where Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon were riding an elevator with Michael J. Fox, and started singing the song. It doesn't really transcend the film the way "Power of Love" does, but it's a fun song.

Eric Clapton makes an appearance here with one of his mid-eighties songs, "Heaven is One Step Away". It's another fun song, not quite what you would expect from a guitar genius like Clapton. It's a bouncy tune, with more focus on the rhythm, and a bridge that features not a guitar solo, but a horn section.

Marvin Berry & the Starlighters make a couple of appearances with some nice oldies slow dance tunes, before Marvin hurts his hand and Marty takes over for a song that really cooks. Good stuff from the Enchantment Under the Sea dance, and a good use of music in a movie being included on a soundtrack.

Rounding out the album are a pair of Alan Silvestri instrumental numbers, some of the best of the 80's from someone other than Roger Williams, then a song from the late, great Etta James. In all, a fantastic soundtrack filled with good songs that will evoke different parts of the film. There isn't a bad song here, if you enjoyed the film at all, this is a great one to own.
