It’s another # 1 hit on ‘Tickets @2″ this afternoon, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Three Dog Night[/lastfm]‘s “Joy To The World.”
Hoyt Axton wrote this for an animated TV special called The Happy Song that never materialized.
Hoyt and his Mother Mae Axton are the only mother-son team to each be credited with writing a # 1 record. His mom Mae wrote Elvis’s “Heartbreak Hotel.”
“Joy To The World” stayed 6 weeks at #1 on the chart.
We’ll take the 9th caller when it plays between two & three for Steve Miller tickets. 1-800-232-KRTH (5784).
