Toni Basil is … 64 and single

I saw a banner ad just today prompting me to “Get Toni Basil’s ‘Mickey’ on your phone”. I don’t know if she’s single, but she is, in fact, 64. Just about the entire universe knows her cheerleading one-hit wonder Mickey. I’m just somewhat flabbergasted at this song’s staying power.

This song first hit #1 on December 11, 1982 and it’s still famous enough that someone decided a ringtone ad campaign was a good idea.

Coming soon from these ringtone guys: My Sharona, Somebody’s Watching Me, that Chumbawumba song, 99 Red Balloons, Informer , Bust a Move, and I Wish.
