    General CommentWeller said it came from a Roy Lichtenstein painting, but any lad who's found themselves with a girl phoning them all the time can relate to this.

    General Commenti heard this referred to a reporter or someone who wrote reviews of albums and such --- this would answer "how" she gets his number --- it would answer "why he doesn't remember meeting her (met a bunch of reporters that day) -- and would explain how she learns all of his info (using her work resources to further her creepy crush).

    General CommentI wonder if Weller was called by "Miranda," the woman who called many famous men in the 1970s and 80s, as documented in Vanity Fair. Billy Joel wrote a song, Laura, that reminds me of this song. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    General CommentIf it was written now I'd say it's about telemarketing, with demographics gathered through the network of databases out there. 'They know everything about you'...

    General CommentIs it just me or does the voice at the end on the phone sound like someone not from the UK? The way she says "hello" is interesting.

    General CommentInfluenced (as often) by The Kinks? Some similarity in subject matter to Party Line from Face to Face?
