Today’s ‘Tickets @ 2′ song is “Bennie And The Jets” by Elton John.
Elton says “Bennie” is a female character who he described as a “sci-fi Rock Goddess.” Lyricist Bernie Taupin, told Esquire, “Bennie And The Jets’ was almost Orwellian – it was supposed to be futuristic. A female rock ‘n’ roll band out of science fiction Automations.”
It was Elton’s idea to stutter the vocal: “B-B-B-Bennie…”
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 the L.A. Auto Show coming to the L.A. Convention Center later this month.
