Back from the past – Call Me ‘Mr’ Telephone
A track produced in 1984 by Mark Kamins (the producer of Madonna’s first album) and Stephane Gerbier titled Call Me ‘Mr’ Telephone (Answering Service) by a singer called Cheyne has been released on cd on a compilation called Twice As Nice on LTM Records.

This song, recorded in 1984 and written by Cheyne (pronounced Shane) herself was originally released as a 7″ and 12″ single in February 1985. It was credited to Madonna in an early biography of Miss Ciccone but the rumour that Madonna actually wrote Call Me ‘Mr’ Telephone has been dismissed as untrue.
However apparently there was indeed a Madonna/Cheyne link. Madonna was to have given Into the Groove to Cheyne as a second single but (fortunately we say) she changed her mind.
