Today’s ‘Tickets @ 2’ song of the day is from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Blondie[/lastfm], it’s “Call Me.” The #1 hit was featured in the movie American Gigolo and made Debbie Harry the first woman to ever get three #1 hits on the British charts.

European Disco producer Giorgio Moroder wrote it with Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry, who thus became the first woman in British chart history to write three #1 hits. However she wasn’t Moroders’s first choice. The Italian disco king had originally wanted Stevie Nicks of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Fleetwood Mac[/lastfm] to do the vocals, but she declined the offer.

The song was #1 on both the US and UK chart.

We’ll take caller # 10 at 1-800-232-KRTH ( 5784) for a pair of tickets to The Wizard of Oz and dinner for two at Black Angus!
