Your ‘Tickets @2’ song of the day is by former New York Policeman Eddie Money, it’s “Two Tickets to Paradise.” Money quit his job in law enforcement to pursue a career in music.
He moved west to Berkely where he gigged in clubs around the bay area where he was discovered by Columbia Records and signed to a recording contract.
Money wrote the song about his girlfriend at the time. His girlfriend’s mother wanted her to marry a doctor or a lawyer, not a singer/musician. Eddie wrote it as a plea to take her away.
