Thumbs up Songs that Make Good Ringtones

Hi ya'll. I just got my very first smartphone and I'm pretty excited to make a lot of sweet ringtones instead of using the classic nokia theme or some generic salsa tune or what have you. I know that is not to everyone's tastes, but I personally enjoy showing off a bit of my cool flavor with a sweet, non-annoying ringtone sampled from a great artist.

So, what songs do you think make good ringtones?

My best friend in college used a section (1:32-1:37) of this, which to this day I find incredibly genius:





What are your ideas?

my girlfriend has a section of Crystal Castles' "Magic Spells" that's pretty sweet if you want something more low key. Right now, though, she's using "Just a Girl" by No Doubt, which is harsh to wake up to.

I, however, am a classicist and slider owner who uses the preset "Akuna Matata" as his ringtone.

Speaking of preset, I'm using a dubstep version of the preset "Fur Elise" but it's grating on my last nerve now and I'm about to change it soon.

oh also congrats on your first smartphone! yay!

I just switched my ringtone to a "beautiful Arabic tone".

I wish I could share it with you but it's lovely. Maybe I'll up a youtube video just so you could hear it. It's a custom one so I have no idea the source of the original song.


Also here is an older ringtones thread that we have going.

I need to get an editing software of some sort. I was going to put up a random picture in the back ground so you don't have to stare at my ugly mug but that was way too much effort this early in the morning.

so here you go.


My new ringtone.


The part where it cuts out starts to get so good.

Ughhh I hate it when that happens. I did a search for "ring tones" but for some reason I missed that. There were some other results that were locked so I just figured it was a dead-end thread. Anyway. The point of this one is different because I'm looking for suggestions!

I love these kind of ringtones. SO AWESOME. But I don't really get where they got the name "Arabic." Haha. And what the heck do you mean, ugly mug? Take it back! Ugly is a harsh word!

the search thing on MB kind of sucks. If you want to find a thread just do the whole open a tab to google and type in whatever you want followed by musicbanter and it will pop up.

I don't know, they just slapped Arabic label on it. I know you listen to more world music than I do so where do you think it takes inspiration from?

Also, I just look so out of it in that video because it's early in the morning when I recorded it plus I was planning to edit the video and put a picture in the background but I just never got around to it. Thanks for the compliment anyways lol.

I have The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Theme tune, been meaning to change it but I don't know what to. So I've just left it as it is.

I love anything that makes me want to dance!
Sometimes for someone specific, I'll have a ringtone that reminds me of them.

When Hermione texts me, I should have "It's Raining Men!" ;P
