Two Tickets to Paradise is a song by American rock singer Eddie Money, from his album Eddie Money in 1977. It was released as a single and reached #22 on the Billboard Hot 100. Money wrote the song about his girlfriend at the time. His girlfriend’s mother wanted her to marry a doctor or a lawyer, not a musician.

Money wrote the song as plea to take her away. It was also used as one of the songs in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and on an episode of the TV show Unhitched. The song also appears in the episode “Homer Loves Flanders” of The Simpsons, in which Homer sings and plays the air guitar to the rock song. Michael Scott of The Office sings a short, parodied version of the song in the episode A Benihana Christmas.

It was also featured in the episode of The King of Queens where Doug and Deacon attempt to spend $5000 in one day, and they hire Eddie to play in Doug’s living room. Additionally, the song can be heard as a background number in the movie “Sideways”.
