KSHE Klassics -- A YouTube Compendium (Part 1)

Posted By on Thu, Dec 3, 2009 at 2:31 PM

In this week's issue, Annie Zaleski heralds the arrival of In Concert: KSHE and 40+ Years of Rock in St. Louis, a scrapbook of the area's latter-day music history. Reading "Raised on Radio" put a few of us locals in a nostalgic state of mind, inspiring an e-mail frenzy of the KSHE Klassics of our formative years.

Before we knew it, we'd traded links to several dozen YouTube videos and figured it'd be selfish of us not to share them with RFT readers. The list got so long that this here is the first of two installments.

The sole criterion for inclusion: A song must have garnered airplay in St. Louis that outstripped its popularity in other corners of the planet. That's it.

Now, without further ado, and in no particular order, we'll get started...

(View Part 2, with 17 more Klassics, here.)

Missouri, "Movin' On" If your band is called Missouri, everything you do is a KSHE classic by definition.

Barclay James Harvest, "Titles" A terrible, terrible idea -- string together all the Beatles song names you can think of -- yields a terrible, terrible song. And tomorrow it'll still be rattling around in your skull! (The video's awesome.)

Chilliwack, "Something Better" This Canadian band made a lot of records (sadly).

Foghat, "Slow Ride" Is it eligible for this list if it's on Guitar Hero? Oh, yes, yes, it is.
