Any of our older viewers remember a novelty tune by Meri Wilson called 'Telephone Man'? (recorded in 1977)

If I remember correctly it reached number 6 in the charts.

Yep. I remember.

There were other songs based on telephone calls, can't remember who they were all by though:

5705
Hello this is Joanie
Telephone line - ELO
Clouds across the moon
Hanging on the telephone - Blondie

Any others?

Well, the main reason I posted this is because I stumbled across (purely by accident) a follow up version recorded by Meri back in 1999 called 'The Internet Man'

If you liked the Telephone Man, you'll like the Internet Man too.

I did some research on Meri, turns out she passed away a few years ago.
