The telephone and the phonograph have a close history including the use of "Hello." See Phonographia's Hello or Ahoy for more details.

 

"I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello" (Released 24 November 1967)

I don't know why you say goodbye, I say "That is all."

 

 

Telephone Line, Electric Light Orchestra, 1977

 

The phone rings, no one answers, but the caller nevertheless asks "Hello, How are You? Have you been alright? That's what I'd like to say....let it ring for ever more..."

 

 

 

Nancy Listen, Laugh & Learn, 1982 LP (backside of album cover)

"Ring Ring" by Abba, 1975 RCA Victor SL-102323 Vinyl, LP Album

 

Ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all
Ring, ring, I stare at the phone on the wall
And I sit all alone impatiently
Won't you please understand the need in me
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ring, ring, ring, that is all.
