Marvin Gaye is back on ‘Tickets @2’ with “Let’s Get It On.”
Originally written by 1950s one-hit-wonder Ed Townsend (“For Your Love”), the song originally addressed the author’s desire to get on with life after beating alcoholism. Marvin Gaye completely changed the lyrics (and meaning) to the song after meeting Janis Hunter, the woman who would become his second wife. Marvin’s version went all the way to #1 in 1973.
When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller #10 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see the Pacific Symphony perform Beethoven’s Greatest Hits August 12th at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre.
