BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983
“Telefone (Long Distance Love Affair)” is a dance/pop single recorded by Scottish singer Sheena Easton, the first single released from her fourth album, 1983’s Best Kept Secret.
The song was most successful in the US, where it became Easton’s fourth top 10 hit, peaking at number nine in late 1983. In the UK the single peaked at number eighty four. The music video, shot in black & white, featured Easton in a haunted house and a cemetery, being pursued by Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, and the Hunchback of Notre Dame before being rescued by King Kong.
In Mexico, the popular teen group Timbiriche released a Latin version, titled Teléfono.
