Today’s ‘Tickest @ 2’ song is Micahel Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel.”
Michael wrote many of his hits himself, including “Billie Jean” and “Beat It.” This is another example of one he wrote, although it’s not nearly as personal as many of his compositions. According to the book Jackson’s Number Ones, he wrote this song after his mother Katherine asked him to write a song with a “shuffling kind of rhythm.
This was the third of 5 US # 1 hits from Bad. Jackson produced the songs on bad with Quincy Jones, who also was in on Thriller.
We wish nothing but the best for the Jackson family following word on Michael Jackson’s 15-year-old daughter Paris’ suicide attempt. Paris is getting what is called appropriate medical attention. Being 15 can be difficult for anyone, but being honest, it’s probably a little more difficult for these three kids, all scheduled to testify in the AEG wrongful death trial as pursued by Katherine Jackson.
We’ll take the 10th caller at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) when you hear the song play between two and three to win a pair of tickets to see The Midtown Men-Four Stars from the Original Cast of Jersey Boys, Thursday June 13th at the Segerstrom Concert Hall.
