2. 867-5309 / Jenny by Tommy Tutone
In 2008, Tommy Tutone lead singer Tommy Heath told on the WGN Morning News that the number was real and it was the number of a girl he knew. As a joke, he wrote it on a bathroom wall in a motel where they were staying. “We laughed about it for years,” he said but apparently, she did not think it was that funny. The number is rumored to be unused all around the country.
Before we get to #1, let me give you a hint, this song kicked off the MTV Generation and MTV itself. Remember? August 1st, 1981. Guess!
