Songs for Answering Machine Messages

Postby Sabina » Wed Dec 15, 2010 12:12 am

Certain songs are very fitting as answering machine or voice mail messages.
I used to have a piece of "Wake up dead man" (U2) as a message on my answering machine... that was years ago. There is an even older song, somewhat silly and a very obvious choice, that is also suitable.
I can't think of any other songs that are, though there must be dozens! At least dozens...
So, feel free to pitch in!

Here are the first two...

Wake up dead man, by U2
Piece for answering machine:
Tell me, tell me the story
The one about eternity
And the way it's all gonna be




Ring ring ring, by De La Soul
Piece for answering machine:
Hey how ya doin'
Sorry ya can't get through
Why don't you leave your name
And your number
And I'll get back to you
Hey how are ya doin'
Sorry ya can't get through
But leave your name (uh)
And your number
And I'll get back to you.

How about:

Evanescence - "Call Me When You're Sober"


I had thought to post "Hello" by Lionel Ritchie... but I couldn't find just the chorus and the rest didn't really work...
[R] If you don't understand something I said or why I said it... ask me.
If you don't want to understand something I said or why I said it... tell me.
