Today on ‘Tickets @ 2′ listen for “The Tracks Of My Tears” by Smokey & The Miracles.
Miracles members Smokey Robinson, Warren Moore, and Marv Tarplin wrote the song. Smokey wrote the lyrics, Tarplin, The Miracles’ guitarist came up with the riff. This was also a hit for Johnny Rivers who covered it in 1967, Linda Ronstadt covered the song in 1976, and Go West in 1993.
Motown head Berry Gordy considers this Robinson’s best work.
When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller # 7 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a 4-Pack of tickets to “Come And Get It” this summer at the O.C. Fair.
