Rockin’ with Last Week’s Power 96 Cool One’s
I've been getting emails from listeners wondering what the Power 96 Cools One's were from week to week, so I've decided to attempt to do a weekly recap of the past week's picks every Monday. Each morning I make the choice for that day's Cool One based on what ever song I have rolling around in my head. Once I figure out which tune I'll be featuring that day, I have to start trying to find it in our massive archives of music. Sometimes I even have to dig through my personal collection to find the right one. Sometimes a song that I once thought was cool ends up getting scrapped because I realize that it didn't stand up to the test of time.
Last week's Power 96 Cool Ones, brought to you by Kelly's Auto Parts on Seventh Street in Faribault, include some classic Scorpions, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Dirty Looks, Britny Fox and Christmas music from Twisted Sister.
You can check out each of my Power 96 Cool One's below:
This single from 1979's Lovedrive failed to chart when it was released but the album made it to No. 55 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200.
This is the band's highest charting single, topping out at No. 7 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
I pulled this tune from their 1989 effort, Turn of the Screw.
This single comes from their self-titled debut, released on June 6, 1988. It only manged to go to No. 100 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 but peaked at No. 33 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
Twisted Sister's take on the beloved Christmas classic, "Silver Bells," originally composed by Jay Livingstone and Ray Evans. It appears on their Christmas album A Twisted Christmas, released in 2006.
