Remember J.C. Lodge's "Telephone Love?"


Try to imagine a more gentle and innocent time.  Think about courtship before GRINDR or BLENDR, before Te'o and his imaginary girlfriend. Do you remember "Telephone Love" by J.C. Lodge? "You sound so sweet on the line, you make my day every time." It was one of the first dancehall reggae songs -- a more "digital" type of reggae that became popular in the early 80s -- to cross over to hip-hop and R&B radio here in New York in 1988. The video is pretty minimal but the beach/bikini vibe looks good on a cold day. Also, check out the "watermelon" phone around 3:05.
