Songs that mention or are about a phone booth

Recommended Posts

You remember those boxes that used to dot the roads where you could go in and make a phone call? It's the thing Superman changed clothes in. It's the thing Maxwell Smart went into and then dropped below ground to Headquarters.

Anyone know any songs that mention those? Or are maybe about them? A friend is putting together an article...

Thanks!

Hanging On The Telephone ~ Blondie

I'm in the phone booth, it's the one across the hall

If you don't answer, I'll just ring it off the wall

I know he's there, but I just had to call

Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

Don't leave me hanging on the telephone....

Superman's Song ~ Crash Test Dummies

Kept on changin' clothes

In dirty old phone booths 'til his work was through.

Had nothin' to do but go on home...

I dropped by to suggest this very song and, as one of its most frequent listeners, clarify that at no point during the song is a phone and/or booth mentioned.

okay, but there is a phone booth throughout most of the video.
