Today's Tickets @ 2 Song: "(In A) Big Country" by Big Country

Did You Know: “Touch Me” By The Doors

Your ‘Tickets @ 2’ hit today is “Touch Me” by The Doors to win tickets to see The Doors tribute band Wild Child this Saturday at the Canyon Club.

Doors guitarist Robby Krieger wrote the song as “Hit Me,” based on fights he had with his girlfriend. In rare show of restraint, Jim Morrison insisted on changing it to “Touch Me.”

At the end of the song, Morrison chants “Stronger than dirt!” The line from an Ajax commercial where a white knight rides around destroying dirt.

Many critics say this was a sellout, as the horn and string sections were not typical of the Doors. The band admitted they were trying to broaden their audience and achieve commercial success, which they did.

We’ll take caller #7 to win tickets, 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) Good Luck!
