|Sheena Easton singles chronology|
"Telefone (Long Distance Love Affair)" is a dance/pop single recorded by Scottish singer Sheena Easton, the first single released from her fourth album, 1983's Best Kept Secret. In November 1984 Easton added "Telefono" to her Spanish album "Todo Me Recuerda A Ti" for the Latin markets. The song was Grammy nominated in 1983 for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
The song was most successful in the US, where it became Easton's fourth top 10 hit, peaking at number nine for two weeks in October and November 1983. The song was less successful in Easton's native UK where it reached number eighty-four.
The music video, shot in black & white, featured Easton in a haunted house and a cemetery, being pursued by Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, and the Hunchback of Notre Dame before being rescued by King Kong.
