About Tommy Tutone
Tommy Tutone Tickets - One of the Most Famous Phone Numbers in History!
What does that mean exactly? You'll see. Read on. This is about one of the most popular early-'80s power pop bands in existence, led by a lead singer with the name Tommy Heath and guitarist Jim Keller. The year was 1978 when they scored a record deal to release their first pieces of work to the music industry, and needless to say the '80s music crowd received them well.
Tommy Tutone Tickets - The Music of Tutone
Tommy Tutone, of course, was the name of the band, not the singer. But that didn't matter to record execs or listeners everywhere. They loved the pop sound of 1980's first single from Tutone called 'Angel Say No'; but it was the second single, hailed as one of the most 'famous phone numbers' ever, 1981's '867-5309/Jenny' that helped Tutone achieve gold status. Over time, a second album went, and then a third in 1983 called National Emotion, showed up -- but forever will Tommy Tutone be known for the phone number from Jenny on the wall as one of the most influential '80s songs ever written and recorded.
Tommy Tutone Tickets - Tommy's Sound and Style
Power pop was definitely all the rage back in those '80s. When guitars had a chance to be all about just soft jamming over the hardcore riffing of classic rock. Tutone's vocals were cute, quick, and easy to follow. For the era, that was spectacular. And even today, '867-5309/Jenny' can easily be sung and caught on with a little bop in the head!
