Cover of The Best of Blondie

From The Best of Blondie and 128 other releases

Hanging on the Telephone is written by Jack Lee and originally performed by Lee’s band The Nerves on their self-titled 1976 EP. The cover by Blondie was released as a single off their 1978 LP Parallel Lines peaking at number 5 in the UK.

According to the Hanging On The Telephone Songfacts), Lee regretted his own version was never a hit, but said he always knew it was a special song: “Even people who hated me – and there were plenty – had to admit it was great.”

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
