Today's Tickets @ 2 Song: "(In A) Big Country" by Big Country

Did You Know: “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” By The Beatles

On ‘Tickets @ 2′ get ready to call 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) when you hear “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” by The Beatles.

The title comes from a reggae band called Jimmy Scott and his Obla Di Obla Da Band. Says Paul, ” A fella who used to hang around the clubs used to say in a Jamaican accent, “Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on,” and he got annoyed when I did a song of it, ’cause he wanted a cut.’ I said ‘Come on, Jimmy, it’s just an expression.”

John Lennon played the piano part.

We’ll take caller # 7 to win a pair of tickets to see The Who-Quadrophenia and more Tour at the Honda Center Monday January 28th. Good Luck!
