“Star 69” is a song from the R.E.M. album Monster. It was not released as a single but still reached #74 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart. The song is named after the access number for the last-call return feature of telephones in North America, as indicated by its chorus:
“I know you called
I know you called
I know you hung up my line
Star 69”
Of all of the songs on Monster, “Star 69” is the one that evolved most from its initial demo. It started out at six minutes long before having its bridge excised and its original chorus discarded. Read on...
