Help Identifying Artist/Song, Please

Postby Sundayguy » Thu Mar 08, 2018 12:34 am

OK, I'm taking a shot here. Been finding it impossible to remember which song it is that uses old touch-tine phone tones in it.
Any Ideas?
If it helps at all, the only part of this song I CAN remember is the tones. One higher, then 2 of the same lower, so kind of like
DEET-doot-doot, and that segment repeats. It's either played on or sampled from touch-tone phone tones. Pretty sure it's '80s, pop maybe or wave.
Please post any song and/or artist that you can think of. One would probably be the song I'm thinking of, but can't quite recall. THANKS!

I figured it out. It was Happyhead Atomic Candy that I had half stuck in my head. Just took a while to get there.
