jenny you have an ebay number

"...Call me, my love
Call me, call me any, anytime..."

Oh wait wrong hit number.

"...Jenny don't change your number 867-5309..."


Maybe Blondie's hit would be getting the attention one-hit-wonder Tommy Tutone's 867-5309 hit is getting if she put a real phone number in the song. Note to songwriters, put catchy phone numbers in the songs about calling.

Back in 2007 the song was in the news because two plumbers were in court fighting over it.

NOW (Feb. 2009) - some DJ guy around New York is going to make a bundle auctioning the number and his business on ebay. BTW - it's the number not the business that is worth so much. Take a look at the video below.




OK - thats amazing but this related item is just plain CRAZY

Some quick thinking person wrote the number on a piece of paper and put that up for auction on ebay. I found that while I was looking for actual phone number auction. So for a piece of paper with 8675309 written on it with a sharpie pen - he's looking to get OVER $100 !!

One more interesting note - over on Tommy's website his bio mentions that his day time job is software engineer.
