We're holding out for 5-7-0-5

Who knew that a one-hit-wonder like Tommy Tutone would still be generating dozens of prank calls, in hundreds of towns, nearly thirty years on?

This is their song:

And now, one of the owners of the magic 567-5309 numbers, has decided he's had enough and is selling the number on eBay. It's great, if you don't mind up to forty calls a day from people who think (a) that it's worth calling a number on a record and (b) that it's worth calling a number on a record decades after the song was released. Still, it must be nice to get calls from people who aren't carrying out a survey in your area into how many windows you'd replace if you could do so at no cost to yourself.
