Today we go north of the border to Canada for the ‘Tickets @ 2′ song of the day, it’s “Takin’ Care Of Business” by Bachman-Turner Overdrive.

Randy Bachman wrote it and also sings lead on the track. He explained to classic that he came up with the idea for the song in the late ’60s while he was still a member of The Guess Who. Bachaman loved “Paperback Writer” by The Beatles, and used that music to create called “White Collar Worker,” which needed a new hook to complete.

Bachman was listening to C-FOX radio on the way to a club and heard the DJ say they were “Takin’ Care of Business,” which gave him the idea for the hook. The phrase became the popular lexicon, forever used by athletes, performers, and DJs to indicate that they’re on the job.

When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller #13 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to enjoy the music of Kenny G on Valentine’s at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
