What about (619) 239-KING by Mojo Nixon? I believe this was an actual number for reporting Elvis sightings.

i like the Logic song, but I was in the midst of a mental health crisis when I first heard it

(not one THAT serious, no, but the sentiment of the song helped nonetheless)

Half of them I don't know...Voted for "Star 69." Marcus wrote that the Beach Boys' "I Get Around" was an answer song to "Beechwood."

Star 69 was the only single I liked off of Monster

how do we explain what Star 69 is to kids nowadays

Lover of Nixon (or LON for short) (Neanderthal), Sunday, 22 November 2020 01:53 (six days ago) link

I have a vague recollection that a friend had to explain to me what Star 69 meant at the time.

gotta be "Jenny" but the B-52s and PE songs are jams as well
