"Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis (f/Jeff Wendle)

Episode 94

This week, Jeff Wendle sits in for our first episode ever about an INSTRUMENTAL one hit wonder. Greek composer Vangelis hit the top of the charts with the theme from the 1981 film “Chariots of Fire”, unseating Joan Jett from the #1 spot and becoming a staple of running montages for decades to come. Regardless of knowing the title of the song, EVERYONE knows it…but is it deserving of such high praise? That’s what we try to figure out this week.

"96 Tears" by ? and the Mysterians (f/Johnny Neutrino)

Episode 89

In the 60's a group of teenagers recorded the song 96 Tears and indirectly became the godfathers of Punk Rock. With a hypnotic organ and sexually charged lyrics the band ? and the Mysterians created a sound the 60's was not ready for. They also left an impression on this week's guest Johnny Neutrino of the Supervillian Rock Group Johnny Neutrino and the Order of the Crawling Hand.
