Back in the day, it was imperative you memorized a phone number. Now, with all these “smart phones” committing a number to memory is more old school than owning a VCR. But before phone books, some of the cool kids starting putting numbers in songs. Take a look at some of music’s famous phone numbers

1) Tommy Tutone -”867-5309/Jenny” 

Lyrics: Eight six seven five three ohhh nineeeeee/eight six seven five three ohhh nineeee

Word on the street, lead singer Tommy Tutone said the number belonged to a girl he knew and decided to write it on a wall of a motel he and the band were staying at. The infectious single took the No. 1 spot on The Billboard Top Tracks in 1982, and became the theme song for all sluts. Rock On!
