I was just talking with someone about ringtones, and it brought to mind the one I had on my first cellphone. My taste in music is very eclectic, and I like everything from Dean Martin to Aerosmith…and most everything in between. But unless I’m trying to relax, I kind of like upbeat stuff. And the video below is the ringtone I chose for my phone.
I guess I never really paid attention to the lyrics because they aren’t very nice. That won’t stop me from listening to the song though.
It was really fun to hear that anytime someone would call. Until the day someone I know was having surgery. I wondered what would happen if I went to visit and my phone started blasting Another One Bites the Dust. And then I wondered what would happen if I had to go to a funeral…and forgot to turn it off.
At that point I replaced it with a song by Boston…
But now I’m thinking…what are some other ringtones that might cause a little embarrassment if your phone rang at the wrong time?
Might not want this one going off during a wedding…
This might be a really bad choice if you were in the middle of a job interview. And it probably shouldn’t be taking up any space on the phone of a 17 year old young man when he’s in the hallway waiting for his 16 year old girlfriend to come downstairs. Especially not if Daddy is within hearing distance.
That’s all the creativity I’m good for tonight. What about you? Can you think of some songs and situations that wouldn’t mix well?
