It's Jenny's phone number...You know...for a good time, call....

 

 

867-5309/Jenny was a  line from a songby Tommy TuTone..early 80's....

 

Back when I was young!!! ( 67 now!!)

 

"867-5309 Jenny" is the song.

 

Bounce over to You Tube...I'm sure you'll recognize it!!!

This one has the lyrics, but there are lots of versions....

 

 

When this song first came out ( before caller ID and cell phones) some woman got 22000 calls  ( legend has it!!!)

867-5309 is the phone number used in a once very popular song!  In other words give them a fake #.

"Jenny" is a song by Tommy Tutone from the 1960s.  "For a good time call 867-5309."  Great song and great idea for those very annoying text pop-ups!

@Othereeeen  Is it?!?  My bad!  It sounds like a 1960s song.  I'm so old that anything after 1970s is "new music" to me!  Woman LOL

@BalletBabe   Lucky you, I've never had a request for a phone number.

My name is Jenny, too, and I graduated from high school in 1071. You wouldn’t believe how much ribbing I got when that song was popular. 😏
