Our Monday ‘Ticket’s @ 2″ song is “Manic Monday” by the Bangles.
Prince wrote the song under the name “Christopher” (the name of his character in his movie Under The Cherry Moon), and it became the Bangles first hit. The purple one discovered the Bangles after coming across the video for one of their early singles, “Hero Takes a Fall,” on MTV.
The Bangles Susanna Hoffs said: “Prince came to our rehearsal after the record was done, and he was really thrilled with how it came out.
Prince’s “Kiss” was #1 when “Manic Monday” was #2.
When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller #9 to win a pair of tickets to see Smokey Robinson at San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino November 7th. Call in at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) Happy Monday!
