Today’s ‘Tickets @ 2′ song of the day is “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye.

Originally written by 1950′s one-hit-wonder Ed Townsend (“For Your Love”), the song originally addressed the author’s desire to get on with life after beating alcoholism, but [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Marvin Gaye[/lastfm] reworked the tune to completely different topic.

Marvin Gaye completely changed the lyrics (and meaning) to the song after meeting Janis Hunter, who would become Marvin’s second wife.

The song was one of 1973′s # 1 hits and we’ll take caller #12 when it plays between two and three for tickets to see The 5-Browns, and dinner for two at Panera Bread; 1-800-232-KRTH (5784)
