Any Major Telephone Vol. 3

With the third mix of telephone-related songs we are going interactive: after the first track, The Main Ingredient’s great version of “Work To Do”, I’ve handed over the compiling to you, the readers. That is to say, all the other songs are suggestions offered in the comments section (which you are more than welcome you utilize, even to just say hello!) and on my Facebook page (facebook.com/amdwhah).

Some of the suggestions I had previously excluded because they didn’t quite fit my criteria of songs having to include actual telephone conversations (so, for instance, Blondie’s “Call Me”, featured here in its original version by The Nerves, previously didn’t make the cut), others I had completely overlooked, and some were happy new discoveries, or in the case of the Falco track, re-discovery. It certainly is an eclectic mix.

I received more nominations than could be accommodated in one mix which is, as always, timed to fit on a standard CD-R. I might use the overflow of these with some of my stock of telephone songs in a fourth mix.

As always, the mix includes home-dialed covers. The images which illustrate them come from the very useful morguefile site; the front cover pic from contributors vilhelm and the back cover image from Alvimann. PW in comments.

    The kitschy 80s hit Clouds Across the Moon by Rah Band would be a nice fit for this series, if it hasn’t featured already.

    That photo is of electrical wires. Not a phone cable in the bunch.
