Hangin on the Telephone


Very rarely does such a perfect situation arise where I can link Blondie with hockey. When I read this Citizen article this morning about Dany and Daniel I knew what had to be done (‘Call Me’ would have done just fine too but I much prefer this song).

“Alfredsson said he has tried “a few times” to speak with Heatley by phone but has been unable to reach him”.~Ottawa Citizen

“I’m in the phone booth, it’s the one across the hall
If you don’t answer, I’ll just ring it off the wall
I know he’s there, but I just had to call
Dany, don’t leave me hanging on the telephone
Dany, don’t leave me hanging on the telephone
I heard Dany’s heading out the door
Did he go to Edmonton or do his agents still want to explore?
All those things he hasn’t said, I think I could ignore
Oh why can’t we talk again (X3)
Don’t leave me hanging on the telephone
Don’t leave me hanging on the telephone
It’s good to hear your voice, you know it’s been so long
If I don’t get your call then everything goes wrong
I want to tell you something you’ve known all along
Don’t leave me hanging on the telephone
I had to interrupt and stop this conversation
Your voice across the line gives me a strange sensation
I’d like to talk when I can show you my affection
Oh I can’t control myself (X3)
Don’t leave me hanging on the telephone
Hang up and run to me
Whoah, hang up and run to me (X4)”~Blondie, Hangin’ On The Telephone 1978 (with a surprisingly small amount of edits by me needed to convey the message)

Or if you care to watch and sing along, enjoy.
