Where is Vicki Carr's LET IT PLEASE BE HIM? One of the great "waiting by the telephone for a call that never comes" songs.
Not to mention "Sylvia's Mother" and "Rikki Don't Lose that Number."
They also missed Kraftwerk's TELEPHONE LINE, which makes great use of the various automated sounds of a telephone, and Lady Gaga & Beyoncé's TELEPHONE, which uses some of the same sound effects and automated voices as the Kraftwerk song. And then there's the classic HELLO THIS US JOANNIE by Paul Evans about a guy who calls his dead girlfriend's phone so he can hear her voice on the answering machine.
