Earlier this morning, we dialed the Hall & Oates Emergency Hotline to get a dose of Hall & Oates music — we selected "You Make My Dreams Come True" — to help us get through the day. That number is 719-266-2837, and normal rates apply.

And as we dialed a phone number to enjoy some music, it reminded us that there is a lot of music that celebrates phone numbers. There are, in fact, many songs that include phone numbers specifically or that reference dialing telephone numbers.

So for today's Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that contain or that reference phone numbers? Send us your requests.

Blondie "Hanging on the Telephone"
