It's time to reveal your ringtones...all of 'em!

Pink_lI wake up to T.I.’s voice every morning, though, sadly, no,we’re not dating.

The rapper with the southern drawl and intriguing split personality provides my daily ringtone wake-up call, though my roommates areprobably tired of hearing "YouKnow What It Is" (or as T.I. likes to say: ”You know what it iiiiiiii") three times a day (I’m the queen of"Five More Minutes!"). But enough about my morning dalliances withT.I.; his song is just one of several ringtones in my repertoire, and each onehas a specific purpose. Don’t judge:

When I hear Weezy say "Young Stunna,"I know thatmy Dad is calling me — probably to yell at me for wasting my money onthings like ringtones (Hi Daddy!). Or maybe I’ve stepped on therapper’s foot? Yes, embarrassingas it may be, my father’s ringtone is "Stuntin’Like My Daddy." But I am!

For my little sister, it’s Maria Mena’s "You’rethe Only One" –- mostly because I think we’re the only two peoplewho understood how good this song really was. We first heard this on The N, inbetween Degrassi episodes. When itcomes to Degrassi and crazy ladieslike Maria Mena, she’s the only one whoknows exactly what I mean.

When my beau calls, I hear Esthero’s "Everyday Is a Holiday (With You)." Cheesy? Sure. But that whole bit about, "when I think of you, you’re thecrescendo to the melody, that melody I love," awww!

Okay, I think I’ve embarrassed myself enough here, butfor good measure, my standard ringtone is Regina Spektor’s"Fidelity," just because I love that song! And rest assured, myphone remains on silent mode while at work/public places. But now it’s your turn: Do you guys haveringtones? Are they methodically programmed like mine? And — trivia time! — did you know Henry Mancini’s "The Pink Panther" holds at No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot Ringtones chart after 147 weeks? Who says PopWatch doesn’t bring you news you can use?

  • Court

    awesome topic…hehe.
    When my friend Amber calls, she gets the James Bond theme, cause she’s a player like that. My sister gets “Call Me When Your Sober” because she never calls me unless she’s drunk (she’s in college), my mom gets the Washington Redskins fight song cause she’s obsessed with them, and “evil” people–like my boss, haha–get the Imperial March from Star Wars.

    For my female best friends, it’s Kelly Rowland’s Like This. For my male best friends, it’s Big Things Poppin by T.I. For my fam, it’s Let the Praise Begin by Fred Hammond. For my man, it’s This is Love by Kelly Rowland. Then I have random ringtones like Lost Without You by Robin Thicke, Bed by J. Holiday, Upgrade U and Ring the Alarm by Beyonce, and Closer by Goapele. My standard ringtone is Brand New Jones by Robin Thicke.

    Holy crap, I’ve downloaded a lot of ringtones. It’s like I’m 13, not 31.

    ok, you win because you watch degrassi.
    i only use one ringtone, because when i set more than one i tend to forget that its my phone ringing, and i actually do use the pink panther theme for all my calls.
    before that, i used two princes, by the spin doctors, so every time the phone rang it would say “if you want to call me baby…” i thought it was funny.

  • No Brand Woman

    Right now, my ringtone is “LDN” by Lily Allen. Before that, it was “19/200″ by the Gorillaz for the longest time (just Noodle saying “Get the cool, get the cool shoe shine” over and over, I love it!). On my old phone, I had the Fraggle Rock theme song and “Maps” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
    My fiance’s current ringtone is “Infected” by Bad Religion.

  • NineDaves

    i just have one ringtone: toto’s “africa.” it makes me smile everytime the phone rings.

  • Tommy G.

    I’m really not that into changing ringtones – yes, I am a fuddy-duddy. But I do have two that I like:
    * “Mickey Mouse Club March” – just ’cause it’s cool and/or obnoxious. (Mostly cool)
    * “If I Only Had A Brain” – Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz. I officially dedicate that to the people of my homestate of Iowa.

  • mcbridefan

    My standard ring tone for all callers is the TV theme from “The Office”

  • Amanda

    “Who can it be now” is my main ringtone…but my alarm is “pardon me” Incubus
