So. Ringtones.  
Now that I have a phone where I don't have to pay for special ringtones, I find I'm spending a ridiculous amount of time thinking about them.

What ringtone would I want to identify a call from me? Hmmm. I'm not completely sold on this, but I'm rather keen on the Torchwood theme. It's a really cool pulsing beat that tells folks, "I have to take this. Sorry. It's classified." To be fair, that may be the perception I'd like people to have of me: savvy, slender, well dressed, great hair, pet pterodactyl. The usual. But what would actually suit me? Maybe the 'Fairy Dance' from the latest Peter Pan soundtrack. Or Dar Williams' 'When I Was a Boy.'

Heads up, flist, for here is my question for you: what ring or theme or snippet of song would best represent you? Or do you have ringtones that would be perfect for your sister or dad or boss, your best friend or your pet pterodactyl? Share!
I feel: creativecreative
I hear: When You Go, Jonathan Coulton

Do they make a TARDIS ring tone? That would be pretty sweet.

Right now I would want the x-files theme, or something from Doctor Horrible. Or "Baby I Love You" by the Yayhoos. I'm not sure.

Oh, on that note that you can have ringtones for specific people which I generally don't but.... My best friend's ring tone for me is a recording of us laughing hysterically at this song we found that was terrible.

For people I don't particularly like receiving calls from I'd go with "Baby I Love You" because the lyrics are "Baby, I love you, but leave me the fuck alone."

The BBC used to have the soundbyte on their website, intended to be used for phones. :) I don't know if they do since they've changed it.
