The votes are in.

Last week, with an electrifying €20 Currys PC World gift voucher on offer, I asked you to name your favourite song featuring phones or phone calls. This was mine.

You dialled in in your dozens.

But there could be only winning caller.

Third Place:

Telephone Road by Steve Earle

Charger Salmons writes:

‘The first time I heard this I was driving down a two-lane blacktop in a big fat old Buick just as dawn rose on a big sky Texas. I had a fresh pack of Winston, a big steaming cup of black coffee and the future Lady Charger asleep in the passenger seat.This track just made perfect driving music.I particularly love the wailing Hammond organ.

I was delivering a car from upstate New York to the West Coast.The company involved gave you five days to make the trip, a certain mileage to do it in and the first tank of gas. Didn’t cost me a thing except the gas to get across and cheap roadside motels. It was the cheapest way to cross America on someone else’s dime. It was only later that I found out the real Telephone Road was only a few hundred miles away in the same state.’


Answering Machine by The Replacements

Stephen Moran writes:

‘Yes the technology may be defunct but the sense of desperation is timeless .Singing into the void of the answering machine static, Westerberg bleeds out with just guitar in hand over the voicemail. “How can you say I’m lonely to an answering machine” showing that regardless of the communication medium, life remain the same: full of heart and heartbreak.’


I’ve Got Your Number Written On The Back Of My Hand by The Jags

Muchacho Gordo-Delgado writes:

‘This is how you used to remain in touch with someone you “met” on a night out.’

Nick says: Thanks all.
