Pop songs with telephones in the videos or even lyrics

  1. Yes, that snappy title is all my own work.

    I'm watching "All I Wanna Do" by Dannii and "Sexual (la da di)" by Amber and spotting a theme, a common thread, a common curly wire... the telephone.

    I'd love to identify more such videos, particularly from 90s pop and dance divas.

    Song-wise too. I would cite "Call Me" by Deee-Lite as an example. Even Sarah Harding smashing a pay phone in "Sound of the Underground" or Geri doing something Geri-like with a phone in "Look At Me".

    Thank you in advance. You will not be charged for your efforts.

    Telephones in music videos, you say?

    This doesn't have a telephone in it, but it does include "so why did 213 show up on your caller ID?" as an argument for why a man is cheating:

  4. Part of my PJRetro legacy!

    It has bubblegum and Bop magazine and the most 80s slumber party ever.

  5. A song about waiting for the telephone to ring. Why didn't they use a telephone in the video?
