"Little Red Light" is a terrific song by Fountains of Wayne, about a guy waiting for a call that never comes.

It's not right
It's not fair
I'm still a mess
And you still don't care
I go to work
I come back home
But you're still gone
And I'm still alone
And the little red light's not blinking
No, no the little red light's not blinking
No, no the little red light's not blinking
On my big black plastic Japanese cordless phone
Oh no


After seeing someone mention "Telephone Man" by Meri Wilson I figured that had to be the worst phone-oriented song ever recorded, but then another poster brought up Vikki Carr's "It Must Be Him", a strong candidate for Most Cringeworthy in the category.
