Great Scott! This is the future! Yes, today is the day Marty McFly and Doc Brown arrive in the future (in the second movie).

He does get money for the song, though he is not credited. The horn section of Tower of Power played on the song, and they toured with Huey Lewis, which ment Huey Lewis had to promote Tower Of Power, as that was the deal.
