Do you ever hear someone’s ringtone and wonder just who is calling them based on the song? I suppose not everyone spends valuable time searching for the perfect ringtone to fit those people who call them often enough to warrant their own tone. But I do. I like to know who’s calling without having to pick up the phone and look at the caller ID. The ringtone will also tell me if I need to run and grab the phone (one of the kids!) or let it go to voice mail (depends on the day and my mood).
I wish there was a ringtone that would signal telemarketers. The best I’ve been able to do is program my phone to play “Whooooo are you? Woo-woo. Woo-woo” for any number that doesn’t have a personal ringtone.
Oldest son–sports nut–has “Centerfield” for his tone. You know “Put me in, coach, I’m ready to play. Today.” Youngest son gets “Sweet Child of Mine” because Mom often needs to be reminded. Sweet. Child.
I think I’ve mentioned before that IV gets Trisha Yearwood’s “How Do I Live Without You?” Just ’cause.
My agent’s tune is “Rockin’ Robin” and when my cousin who is more of a sister calls I hear the Beatles “Michelle.”
I often wonder what my ringtone would be. It would be nice if my kids chose “Amazing Grace” but that ain’t happenin’. Probably more along the lines of the parental squack from the Peanuts cartoons.
IV often sings “You are my Sunshine to Me” when I snarl at him. Always makes me laugh. He will also sing “Cruella DeVille.” I guess it’s better than the Wicked Witch of the West tune. A little. ”You Light Up my Life” would be nice.
Do you have ringtones for the special callers in your life? What are they? Why?
If you could chose your own ringtone, what would it be?
