Today’s ‘Tickets @ 2′ hit is from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Blood, Sweat & Tears[/lastfm] “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy.”
It was originally a #39 hit for Motown singer Brenda Hollaway in 1967. Holloway shares writing credit with Berry Gordy, Frank Wilson and Patrice Holloway.
Blood, Sweat & Tears founder and keyboard player Al Kooper came up with the idea to record the song, but he left the group before they recorded as David Clayton Thomas took over. It turns out to be the first of 3 US # 2 songs for B, S, & T. The others being “Spinning Wheel”, and “When I Die.”
We’ll take caller # 16 when it plays between two and three for “Riverdance” tickets by calling 1-800-232-KRTH (5784).
