‘Tickets @ 2′ today features “Do You Love Me?” by The Contours.

The song was written by Motown president Berry Gordy Jr. He wrote it for The Temptations, but they failed to arrive for the recording session. At the same time but in a different Motown studio, The Contours arrived from a club gig to record “It Must Be Love,” so Berry asked them to cut “Do You Love Me?” instead. The song became one of Motown’s first hits.

After being featured in the 1988 movie Dirty Dancing 26 years after it was first recorded, it charted for a second time at # 11. The Dave Clark Five recorded the song in 1964 as the British Invasion was underway.

When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller #7  at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see the classic musical “Singin’ In The Rain” performed by the Pacific Symphony at the Segerstrom Concert Hall.
