This afternoon’s ‘Tickets @ 2’ song of the day is “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benetar.
The song was written by Eddie Schwartz, a successful producer who has worked with Joe Cocker, Carly Simon, The Doobie Brothers and Jeffrey Osborne.
This hit big at about the time Aerobics was catching on in America. Catherine Zeta-Jones performed the hit in the 2012 movie Rock of Ages, featuring iconic songs from the ’80s.
Pat Benetar worked as a Bank Teller, and waitress before getting her music career going.
When we play it between two and three this afternoon we’ll take caller # 7 to 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see Cirque Du Soleil’s “Iris” at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood during its final days before leaving January 19th.
