“Vienna Calling” by Falco

When is the last time you got on the telephone and made a voice call to someone other than your parents or grandparents? When is the last time you called your best friend?

According to this 2018 op/ed, it’s time we brought back the telephone call.

Today is National Telephone Day. Make this long overt-due calls today. You have a good excuse now. And if your calls go straight into voicemail, play them this song and tell them to call you back.

For some reason this version has a flute line in places. This did not appear on the original 7 inch single.

If you want to buy the phone seen in the photo above, you can find it on amazon.

Have a great day. Go make those calls!
