Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand

Happy TUNEBACK TUESDAY!! Today I’m tuning it back to a chill song from the ’90s… “Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand” by Primitive Radio Gods.

ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE: June 1996

TRIVIA: It became popular after being featured in the movie The Cable Guy, as well as its film soundtrack, and soon after peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart.

Its chorus consists of a sample from the 1964 B.B. King song “How Blue Can You Get”: “I’ve been downhearted baby, ever since the day we met.”

See you next Tuesday!!
