Cell Phone Sounds

This morning, as I turned off the shower, I heard soft strains of tinny music coming through the bathroom door. This puzzled me at first, because I I hadn't left my radio playing. It took me a moment to realize it was the end of the little ditty my cell phone plays when it wants to alert me that somebody is calling it.

This got me thinking about the various custom rings people have on their cell phones these days. You know what I think would be cool? If when you called a person's cell phone, you could actually hear whatever tune that specific person's phone was playing. That would be neat, to hear their actual ring tone through your phone. A nice personalization. It would also make waiting for them to answer more entertaining.

Oh sure, technology-wise it's totally impractical, but I still think it would be a great idea.

I'm not sure if my new cell phone allows me to download or compose custom rings for it, although I'd like to. So far I've just been using one of the rings that it came with. I keep meaning to look into it, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I was thinking about it though, because I know somebody who arranged one of his favorite songs for his cell phone so its ring would be more unique.

I was wondering what I would put on my cell phone, if I could have any song in the world. And I decided: I would like my cell phone to play You Are My Sunshine. What a nice cheery way for it to ring. Life can use more cheer.

Wouldn't it be great if, whenever you called me, you could hear You Are My Sunshine through your phone too? (Don't say 'no' you big spoil-sport. Just nod and smile.)

When I grew weary of You Are My Sunshine, I think I would switch it to Cecelia. That's another song that just makes me smile whenever I hear it.

What would you choose, if you could have any song in the world?
