Sunday is almost over, but I am going to work hard at getting my songs in.
Jim says, “This week the theme [for Song Lyric Sunday] is songs that feature lyrics associated with electronic communication devices (pagers, iPhone, Android, fax machine, computer, TV) suggested by Amy Braun…”
This topic immediately brought to mind two songs for me, and they are Hotline Bling by Drake and 867-5309/Jenny by Tommy Tutone. I never really cared for the Drake song because it annoyed me, but I grew up listening to Jenny all my life. Hotline Bling was code for a booty call, but I think Jenny was code for something too.
In Danville, Illinois, where I was born and raised, they had a few good radio stations, and my mom either had it on the Classic Rock station (cannot remember their call sign anymore) or on D102 FM, which was various hits. Jenny was released in 1998, which meant that I was 22, but I always thought I was much younger when I heard that song. (Maybe I was young-minded lol…It did take a little bit more time for my maturity to ripen and to get out on my own.) I always wondered how many people called that number in a single day, and if I was not so tired, I would definitely do my research. Stay tuned because I may look it up tomorrow if someone reminds me *giggles*.
