in the 1982 song by the band tommy tutone, what was “jenny’s” number?

Answer: “Jenny’s” number is 867-5309.

In the 1982 song, Tommy Tutone sang about a girl named “Jenny.” But what was her phone number? According to One Hundred Years of Telephone Codes and Phones, there would be no such area code in the United States of America. It turns out that Tom Kinzer (the man who wrote the song) used his wife Peggy’s (Tommy Tutone) phone number as a placeholder because he didn’t know anyone else’s number at the time. So you can pretend it was your girlfriend Jenny on the other line after all! Oh Jenny, why did you have to hang up anyway?
