Ringtones, again

September 17, 2007

What’s fairly used in your (i)phone?

After all this hoo-rah about the iPhone, iTunes, and paying for ringtones (is it really not possible to just treat it like an ordinary GSM phone?) I got to thinking about what was in my phone, and what needed to be there.

Music, such as it is:

Alice’s Restaurant Massacree (intro guitar)
Fish Heads (intro falsetto)

Eat them up, yum!

Institutionalized (intro drums)
Non-alignment Pact (intro squeal)
REALLY ANNOYING. After you finish trying to figure out where the alarm is, you realize it’s your phone.
Perpetuum Mobile (intro piano)
Probably the least-offensive ringtone of the bunch
We Have the Technology (outro)


My son wanted some phone-sounding ringtones, I found this
Dean Scream
Long Raspberry
Viola Chords


American Crow
For Dick Cheney (bang!)
Chuck Will’s Widow
Laughing Gull
Mine! Mine! Mine!
Red-Bellied Woodpecker
I grew up with these in Florida, didn’t know who was making the sound at the time (there’s lots of bugs and frogs and birds in Florida, it could have been a lot of things)
Red-Shouldered Hawk
Red-Winged Blackbird
Can’t use this outdoors near water, too easy to hear a real one and get confused
