This is a phone number that was featured in Tommy Tutone’s hit song in 1982. It found its way to an auction that was put up by a New Jersey DJ. He could not sell the actual number since that would violate the rules of the telephone company. However, he could auction the DJ business the number was associated with. It was sold for 186 thousand dollars. Some report that the number still gets thousands of calls per year from 80s fans.
