Hey Lolly Lolly

Meri Wilson : Telephone Man

On June 4, 1977 Meri Wilson 's "Telephone Man" entered the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart at #85. It is an insipid double-entendre novelty record that somehow found its way into the US Top 20, the U.K. Top 10  and somehow into my family's record collection. Did one of my sisters buy it? They won't admit it. (My oldest sister would only admit to buying Nadia's Theme and Muskrat Love). I sure as hell didn't buy it. The whole thing's a mystery!  Now I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight.
