Messages for Jenny

A little history on Jenny from Wikipedia:

“867-5309/Jenny” is a song written by Alex Call and Jim Keller and performed by Tommy Tutone that was released on the album Tommy Tutone 2, on the Columbia Records label. It peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #1 on the Billboard Top Tracks chart in 1982 (see 1982 in music). Co-writer Call came up with both “Jenny” and the telephone number and completed the song with Keller.

The song caused a fad of people dialing 867-5309 and asking for “Jenny”.

Now some people got the famous Jenny phone number and are recording the messages that come in.

    True story: whenever I move to a new city, I call up that area code’s 867-5309 and introduce myself.

    Tommy Tutone was woefully underrated; “Cheap Date” from their first albut was and is a gem.

    If you ever forget your loyalty card or don’t have one at grocery stores, pharmacies or other stores that offer them. Try 867-5309 – chances are someone has set up a card for that number. You’ll be giving them the points but you’ll get the discount.

    This tune is timeless

    • This time is tuneless, compared to my day (said the old curmudgeon who promised himself he wouldn’t get curmudgeonly, but that was before he got old!-)
