Operator is a 1984 1 R&Bdance single by Midnight Star, produced by then-current bandmember Reggie Calloway. At the dawning of 1984, despite having achieved much success on the R&B chart and an extremely successful album, No Parking on the Dance Floor the previous year, Midnight Star had yet to make a big impression on the pop charts. However, Operator finally scored the band a significant pop hit. The single cracked the pop Top 20, peaking at number 18, and remains Midnight Star's only top 40.

Operate that body, operate on me Operate that body, take control of me Operate that body, operate on me Take control of my body, take control of me I call my baby up on the telephone I got connected to a freaky zone The conversation was strictly void Said if you don't join the party, go home The operator said, this was. it right We're gonna operate our love tonight Operator, this is an emergency Operator, baby burning up on me Operator, this is an emergency Operator Call me up any time, any time I'm all in the mix because it's Party time, I'm gonna take my time Gonna do it right, do it right I'm gonna operate your love. by Midnight Star.

Midnight Star's Reggie Calloway told Billboard: We often look around for concepts that relate to day-to-day life and figure out how we can make a twist on it. Almost every day you're talking to an operator or you get disconnected or you dial a wrong number. It was before sampling, so we recorded an actual operator and used in on the record. Peaking at 18, this was Midnight Star's first and only Top 40 hit on the pop chart. It was also their first 1 on the R&B chart. At one point, the narrator offers to get together on the party line.

Without Reginald and Vincent Calloway to lead the way, Midnight Star fell fast and far. A 1988 self-titled album flopped, and 1990's Work It Out proved to be their last until 2002's 15th Avenue. Since then, the members continued outside collaborations, but they also came together for frequent touring.

Lost my copy of this 12 inch but i have it on 45... anyways... I have a question about the speed/pitch of this recording!?!?!

I noticed that the version on the 45 I have (Canadian pressing) is sped up (about a semi-tone) compared to the version on the album 'Planetary Invasion'. Also, the B-Side "Playmates" is sped up as compared to the version on 'No Parking On The Dancefloor' and compared to the version I have on the Freak-A-Zoid 45 (Canadian pressing). So i'm wondering if the single for Operator/Playmates is sped up or is it just the Canadian pressing!?!?! And NO... its not normal for a Canadian pressing to be a different pitch than the US (in fact they are often the same master).

Did they speed up the songs for this release all together or is just the Canadian 45 sped up!?
