‘Tickets @ 2′ features a #1 “Bad” hit by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Michael Jackson[/lastfm]. It’s a song Jackson wrote that crafted a new image for the singer by wearing leather, chains and acting tough. The title was hip as the word “Bad” implied seriously “cool.”
Jackson wanted the song to be a duet with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Prince[/lastfm], but the idea fell through when the two had creative differences over lyrical content and Prince refused the project. Prince did say that he thought the song would be a hit whether he was in it or not.
When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller #16 to win a pair of tickets to see Melissa Manchester at Pepperdine College. 1-800-232-KRTH (5784).
