K-Chuck Radio: Keep me going

So I’m going under the knife today.  By the time you read this, I will be swimming in a bath of anesthesia, while the doctor surgically repairs my ankle.

So while I’m trying to get through the surgery …

I’m going to need some music to keep me going.

So let’s get started with …

CATHY DENNIS
Touch Me (All Night Long)

Nothing like a little 90’s girl-pop to get me feeling good.  Positive motivation, amirite?

THE KLF feat. TAMMY WYNETTE
Justified and Ancient

The KLF were a series of techno artists who rounded up country singer Tammy Wynette … and got her to sing a Top 20 techno pop hit.  Go figure.

THE COVER GIRLS
Because of You

This should keep me energized, because how can you go wrong with this freestyle group of super-hot singers?  Yeah, you know I’m right on this.

PEACH UNION
On My Own

Here’s what I know about this one-hit wonder … apparently the creator of this group normally works in punk rock music, this was his attempt for a light pop song.  And it works.

THE STRANGERS
Melanie Makes Me Smile

This Australian group had a Top 10 hit Down Under with this song, and if you can get past those five-alarm collared shirts they’re wearing … it’s a great song in and of itself.

MAJOR HOOPLE’S BOARDING HOUSE
I’m Running After You

Named after a 1940’s-era newspaper cartoon, Major Hoople’s Boarding House had several hits in Canada, this was their biggest and most successful track.

THE BOUGALIEU
When I Was a Children

Gotta love that homegrown Capital District rock and roll.  And this should have been a much bigger hit than it was.  And even with that, it’s still a great song and definitely worth a pep in your step.

THE HOGS
Loose Lip Sync Ship

“The Hogs” were actually the legendary 60’s group Chocolate Watchband, and this “freak-out” track has been credited as being produced by Frank Zappa, but honestly Zappa was not involved in this song.  But it sure sounds like him, doesn’t it?

Okay, I hope you enjoy today’s K-Chuck Radio, and hopefully by this time tomorrow, I should be back in shape and blogging and healing from the surgery.

Thoughts and hopes.
