We're almost halfway into what has turned out to be a warm February, but I've been trying to keep things cool with the daily Power 96 Cool One. It’s always fun trying to dig up some different and deep tracks from artists you know but haven’t heard in a long time to feature each weekday at 4:35PM by Kelly’s Auto Parts in Faribault, and as always I welcome your suggestions and ideas at Nominate a Power 96 Cool One

I remember a lot of music from my past, but there are some that I’ve forgotten over the years and it’s always exciting to find that lost gem through your suggestions. The only thing I ask is that they were at least released as a single at one time or another.

Last week I featured some classic old Cheap Trick, a forgotten hit from Huey Lewis and the News, a cut from the Bo Deans and Bush and rockin' track from the AC/DC influenced Krokus.

All right, time to run them down:

  • 1

    Cheap Trick: California Man

    Originally released by The Move in 1972, Cheap Trick decided to cover it for their 1978 and third studio album, Heaven Tonight.

    Huey Lewis and the News: Couple Days Off

    Released in 1991, this single peaked at No. 11 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

    Bo Deans: Feed the Fire

    This single is from my favorite album by the Bo Deans, Go Slow Down, and topped the U.S. Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart at No. 34.

  • 4

    Bush: The Chemicals Between Us

    This track may have only reached No. 63 on the Hot 100 but it topped the Alternative Songs chart at No. 1 in 1999.

  • 5

    Krokus: Bad Boys Rag Dolls

    This single comes from their sixth studio album, One Vice at a Time, the same recording that gave us "Long Stick Goes Boom."
