The GloNo Ringtone Thread

Postby worpswede » Fri Jul 06, 2007 11:19 am

It blows my mind that there are charts that track what songs people download for their ringtones. So that made me curious as to what others have to alert them when people call.
Worps' LG rocks to:
The Wife: Kiss "Beth" (the special lady friend's name)
The Parents: Cheap Trick "Surrender" (they just seem a little weird)
The Work: Slayer "Cult" (hardly answered)
The Friends: The Flaming Lips "The Wand" (good times)
Name yours...

That's quite an idea. Your stepdad's got a great name, to boot.

My phone is on vibrate. All the time.

on that note: "Vibrate" - Rufus Wainwright, for my "wife" and a cousin who loves Rufus.

"Big Brown Eyes" (but just "Oh please pick up the phone") - the Old 97's, default

"Angel with an Attitude" - the Ditty Bops/ "Better Be Good" Tina Turner/
"Fake Palindromes" (just that last verse) Andrew Bird/ "That Teenage Feeling" - Neko Case/ "My Valentine" Rhett Miller, for most of my girlfriends

"I Like You" crushes.

"You Are My Favorite Song" Chris Mills (for music related peeps)

"Trouble Child" Joni Mitchell...for my mom.

"I Shall Be Free #10" Bob Dylan ("Well, I'm liberal but to a degree, I want everybody to be free, but if you think I'll let Barry Goldwater move in next door or marry my daughter, you must think I'm crazy!") dad, of course.]

"Heavy Metal Drummer" (I miss the innocence I've known...) - Wilco, for my youngish friends.

"Via Chicago" - Wilco, for everyone from that fabulous board of the same name

"Til My Head Falls Off" They Might Be Giants - my little bro (and my little Ellie)

"In my Life" The Beatles - for my parent's house phone, and the kids I babysit/babysat for.

"Positively 4th Street" for my fuckin' crazy former roommate.

Also on the list:

"Suffragette City" David Bowie (Aaaah....Wham Bam Thank you Ma'am!)
"Once in a Lifetime" Talking Heads (Same as it ever was....)
"Dolly" & "Horrorshow" the Blacks
The Time Warp from Rocky Horror
"Montreal" Paul Burch

I spend waaaaaaaaaay to much time on this stuff.

Mine has a basic old fashion telephone ring. Sounds like a dial phone.

London Calling. It comes in at the beginning of the chorus, though, so I'm gonna change it. Maybe to Kelly Clarkson.
