Siri Stafford/Lifesize/Thinkstoc(NEW YORK) — Are you feeling lonely? Do you need some smooth, late 1970s — early 1980s jams to get you through these increasingly frigid autumn nights? Well look no further than the freshly launched Callin’ Oates hotline.

Just pick up the phone and dial 719-26-OATES, that’s 719-266-2837 — “your emergency Hall and Oates hotline.” You’ll then be able to select one of four classic tracks from the famous Philly soul duo Hall and Oates. Your choice of their treasured “rock and soul” smash hits are as follows:

1 — One on One

2 — Rich Girl

3 — Maneater

4 — Private Eyes

The line, which was set up by Twilio Cloud Communications Michael Selvidge, gained popularity across the web with a single re-tweet from New York Times tech reporter Jenna Wortham.

Be sure to call right away — who knows how long what may be the last great meme of 2011 will last?
