75 of the Best “One Hit Wonder” Songs of All Time

Tommy Tutone – “867-5309/Jenny” (1981)

Tommy Tutone’s 1981 song “867-5309/Jenny” is considered to be the catchiest phone number song in history, featuring a combination of numbers that perfectly match the beat. The subject of “Jenny” has been the subject of many urban legends over the years, with many stipulating that she was a prostitute and some co-writers disagreeing on whether she was even real in the first place!

Sadly for Tutone, this was the only song throughout his music career that managed to make it to the top 25 of the US Billboard Hot 100. The song peaked at number four.
