Today's Tickets @ 2 Song: “What You Need” by INXS

Did You Know: “Every Breath You Take” By The Police

Today on ‘Tickets @ 2’ it’s one of the most misinterpreted songs ever — The Police’s “Every Breath You Take.” It’s about an obsessive stalker, but sounds like a love song. Some people even use it in their wedding.

Police frontman Sting wrote it after separating from his first wife, Francis Tomeltry. Sting said in a 1983 interview that: “I think it’s a nasty little song, really rather evil.”

It was the biggest hit of 1983. It stayed at # 1 for 8 weeks.

Sting wrote the lyrics on the same desk in Jamaica where Ian Fleming wrote his James Bond Novels.

We’ll look for caller # 18 when it plays between two and three for a pair of tickets to see Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band December 28th at Staples Center by calling 1-800-232-KRTH (5784).
