A Recap of the First Week of 2017’s Cool Ones
It's hard to believe we're already a week into the new year, and that means the first full week of Power 96 Cool Ones is already in the books. So let's look back and recap the tunes I chose to kick off the new year.
To be honest it started out pretty slow, I must've still been hung over from all the partying I did on New Year's Eve or, more than likely, it was the fact that I was still a little sore and tired from a day of cutting, splitting and stacking firewood. Especially since my New Year's Eve partying lasted about two hours before it was cut short by an emergency back at home. The week began with a couple of mellow tunes, one from the Atlanta Rhythm Section and one from Neil Young, then I took it up a notch with The Power Station, an '80s supergroup made up of Robert Palmer and members of Duran Duran and Chic. On Thursday and Friday it was time for some hair metal from little-known Heaven's Edge and Tyketto.
So without further ado, here are the Power 96 Cool Ones, brought to you by Kelly's Auto Parts on Seventh Street in Faribault, for last week on Power 96:
This single comes from their 1976 album Rock and Roll Alternative and made it to No. 7 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
This single was also the B-side on "The Loner" and "Cinnamon Girl" but never made it onto an album until 1997 compilation Decade.
This was the first single and biggest hit from their 1985 self-titled debut album. It topped out at No. 6 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
This glam metal band from Philidelphia dropped this little gem on the music world back in 1990. It comes from their 1990 self-titled debut. The next album from them wouldn't see the light of day until 1999.
Another hair metal band that came unto the scene too late to make a big splash and were quickly buried by the grunge movement. This single comes from their 1991 release, Don't Come Easy.
