Today on ‘Tickets @ 2,’ the song of the day is from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Righteous Brothers[/lastfm]. It was the ‘B’ side to “Hung On You,” which was produced by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Phil Spector[/lastfm].

DJ’s at the time didn’t care for “Hung On You” and flipped the vinyl, which infuriated Spector because Bill Medley produced Bobby Hatfield singing lead on “Unchained Melody.”

When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller #12 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kenny Loggins[/lastfm] at San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino!

    UNCHAINED SPELLING BEE
    (Sung to “Unchained Melody” By
    The Righteous Brothers;
    Words re-written by RainbowRay)

    Oh, my L-O-V-E
    Fiona, My darling
    I hunger for your T-O-U-C-H
    A long, lonely T-I-M-E
    And T-I-M-E goes by so slowly
    And T-I-M-E can do so M-U-C-H
    Are you still M-I-N-E?
    Fiona, I need your L-O-V-E
    Fiona, I need your L-O-V-E
    Godspeed your L-O-V-E to M-E

    Lonely rivers flow to the S-E-A
    To the S-E-A
    To the open arms of the S-E-A
    Lonely rivers sigh, “Wait for M-E, wait for M-E”
    I’ ll be coming home, wait for M-E

    Oh, Fiona my L-O-V-E
    My darling
    I’ve hungered,for your T-O–U–C-H
    A long lonely T-I-M-E
    And T-I-M-E goes B-Y so slowly
    And T-I-M-E can do so M-U-C-H
    Are you still M-I-N-E
    Fiona, I need your L-O-V-E
    Fiona, I need your L-O-V-E
    Godspeed your L-O-V-E to M-E

    I hope everyone at KEARTH101 (Hi Tom!) and the people of L.A. listening to your station enjoy this. Maybe it will help improve your spelling! The video doesn’t exactly match the song, but the lyrics are from Google.

    LOVE
    RainbowRay
    ????? (but getting closer to CALIFORNIA!)
