Day 340: Jenny, Tommy Tutone

So yesterday I cited the song “Rikki Don’t lose that number” by Steely Dan and that song reminded me of this famous one hit wonder by the band Tommy Tutone. I think the chorus of this song is quite clever with the girl’s telephone number plastered all over it: 8675309. I always wondered whether there was some poor person in the world who was the owner of that phone number and consequently around the time this song was a hit (1981) got tons of prank phone calls from young rockers who liked to listen to the top 100 charts on their little tranny radios.
