A pretty good mash-up of Blondie's Hanging On The Telephone and ABBA's Ring Ring. Cute.

Great find EAS. Never realized the similarities between the two songs. BTW, I like your current Madonna AV.

Speaking Of Madonna, her hit song "Hung Up" was based on ABBA's "Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight)"

Thanks TCB. Yes, the the producer/remixer [Matt Pop] has a definite talent judging by his other clips. Here are a couple more interesting uploads he has worked on [by chance 2 of my all-time favourite recordings!].
NOTE: The Borderline remix uses some cool vocal outtakes on the coda.

Re. Madonna's Hung Up, yes she sampled the aforementioned ABBA track to great effect - even writing to all 4 ex-members to ask permission for her to use it! Love her. :smt007

Coincidently here she is in a 2005 CBS news interview, talking briefly about Elvis, when reminded by the interviewer that she had tied his then record of 36 top-ten singles on the Billboard Hot 100, with Hung Up. "I think I'm in good company" she says proudly.

Don't we all friend!
Arguably the two most enduring female pop icons of the 70's, both still looking mighty fine to this day. :smt055
