I'm sure alot of us heard 'Young Lust' off Pink Floyd's "The Wall" album. A question popped into my head today which made me want to toss this post up.

At the end of the track, "Pink" calls his house via a Overseas operator to find out that his wife is a skank sleeping around on him.

What is the decode of the tones the operator dials to call his house when she retries the call?

Pink Floyd's Young Lust is a song on their 1979 album The Wall. The last 45 seconds of the song is a person-to-person collect call to a "Mr. Floyd from Mrs. Floyd" which of course do not exist. You hear the operator make two attempts, one of which you hear international MF sounds and 2400/2600 Hz supervision chirps. I wonder if AT&T ever asked for royalties from this song?

I found this a year or two ago. Do a control + f for Keith Monahan, it's a long page:

What about that call at the beginning of "Deez Nuts" by Dr. Dre? Anybody ever decode the DTMF?

I wish they would actually decode what was sent. It would be neat to see what numbers people dial and put into their songs. Gotta beat 555-numbers and 8675309. :)

Oh, very cool. Exactly what I was looking for..

Entire MF string is 'KP1' 0 4 4 1 8 3 1 'ST'


Now I wonder if UK dialing schemes changed in the 1960's/70's. so the number can be mapped to a new number. :)

It'll probably end up being EMI's studios or something.

Cool!

044 is the UK country code, padded with a zero. The zero was sometimes needed when blue boxing a call overseas back in the day.

183 was the old internal code for the New York City ISC (International Switching Center) overseas gateway.

To box a call to the UK using the New York ISC, one would MF:

KP + 183 +ST

This would return a wink and an international dial tone. One would then MF, for the UK:

KP + 44 + city_code + local_number + ST

If one did not know the correct ISC to use (there were at least 7). one would MF:

KP + 011 + 044 + ST

This would select the optimal ISC for the country and return the wink and international dial tone. One would then MF:

KP + 44 + city_code + local_number + ST


Some similar digits seem to be in the decoded string, but not in the correct order. Maybe a new phreak?

Thanks for posting this. Didn't get to see the thread until today! :)

It was interesting in the days of mixed switching systems in the late 1970s. #1ESS & #1AESS switches that were IDDD capable, yet the majority of the network was #4 crossbar. #4 crossbar switches were limited to 10 digits total, so they could not (natively) handle IDDD calls. So the #4 was just a passthrough switch.

When an IDDD call was set up, the 1/1A would call the appropriate International gateway through the 4/4A/4M, then when it "answered" with 480 Hz, the 1/1A would then spill the MF string to the gateway, then the gateway would then spill MF (I'm guessing in this case in R2 format) to the UK gateway.

When a TSPS operator did it, she would connect to the gateway, hear the tone, then manually send the MF string to the gateway - which is what you hear in the song.

Obviously the song was heavily edited, but you do get to hear the call setup, and the 2600 Hz supervision chirps.

Classic rock at its finest - with classic phone sounds!

Here's another question inspired by the change in seasons...

Queensryche's album "Empire" features two voice mail recordings: One in "Another rainy night" and another in "Empire".

What VMS system is it and does anyone actually have a website that keeps track of which VMS is which by the sound of the voice prompts?

Bonus points if someone actually has all the prompts of said VMS so that people can customize their Asterisk PBX system with.

Here's another music/phreaking question. At the end of the song Almost ready by Dinosaur Jr do you hear red box tones, or am I going crazy?

There's too many pulses to be a quarter tone, but it sounds like it's almost the right frequency.
