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 don't actually do special ring tones ... but people have tones for me on their phones. Most of them have to do with being naked. I hadn't even heard half the songs before, but somewhere in them is a line about taking off clothing.

I identify with One Week by BNL ("I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve, I have a history of taking off my shirt"). See? Even I pick songs with no clothes.

But there are lists of songs one can claim. Most people have many. In fact, I have a list to be played at my funeral. THREE versions of "My Way" are on it (Frank, Elvis, Syd Vicious). The viewing would last only as long as the playlist. No speech, just the music. I thought I was so original, but my brother told me this week that he actually has plans for a CD that would be given to every ... guest? ... at his interment.

Music and people. Seems to be a very strong connection.
