Generating the most infamous phone number in the galaxy, Tommy Tutone's "867-5309/Jenny" is easily one of the most identifiable OHWs ever pressed on vinyl. The song peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1982 and, despite being an earworm to this day, we never heard from Tommy Tutone again.
