Telephone Things

Hanging on the telephone – Blondie
He’s on the phone – Saint Etienne
New York telephone conversation – Lou Reed
Phone Me Tonight – Arab Strap
Telephone thing – The Fall
When will you (make my telephone ring) – Deacon Blue
Telephone Man – Meri Wilson

Gawd – had forgotten this last one until just now. Remember:

went to my apartment on a Monday at one
A-singin’ do lolly, lolly, shicky bum, shicky bum
Started movin’, in it on a Tuesday at two
A-singin’ do lolly, lolly, shicky do, shicky do
Wednesday at three I called the phone company, singin’
Hey, baby, put a phone in for me
Thursday at four he came a-knockin’ at my door, singin’
Hey, baby, I’m your telephone man
You just show me where you want it and I’ll put it where I can
I can put it in the bedroom, I can put it in the hall
I can put it in the bathroom, I can hang it on the wall
You can have it with a buzz, you can have it with a ring
And if you really want it you can have a ding-a-ling
Because, a hey, baby, I’m your telephone man

The first pop song I ever learnt the words to: Telephone (Long Distance Love Affairs) – Sheena Easton.

Does Call Me (Blondie) count?
