Best WH song for ringtone

Postby WailedHut » 23rd Jun 11, 12:23

What are your opinions on the best WH song for a mobile phone ringtone? Bear in mind that I'd normally answer a phone within 10 seconds, so it needs to be about 10 seconds of absolute magnificence.

I've gone for 29 x The Pain intro for calls and one blast of the Jackson Whites intro riff for messages.

Best WH song for ringtone

Postby Sarc » 23rd Jun 11, 16:31

I find any that any song that kicks in with entire band playing makes for a top ringtone.

However for text tones if you can trim the monkey noise from The Snake the lion the monkey and the spider thats a pretty good one.
I sent it to Ean when i did it, we both lasted a week before we had to change it as it made us both jump like hell each time it went off.
Not sent from my fucking iphone.

trim off the intro to inglorious so it kicks straight in with the huge riff.

I completely agree about the whole band kicking in for that heavy WH sound. Was thinking about The Sweetest Song for that very reason, or maybe editing the very beginning off of Chutzpah. Keep the ideas coming.
That monkey MP3 is awesome! Cheers!

I don't agree with whole band kicking in. What's the point? Speakers can't handle it, not with powerful music like that.

Fie!

What you need is something like "The Song Formally Known As?" - you get a few seconds of one guitar playing a funky riff and if you don't hear it/get to it in time you end up with a wall of static.

Perfect.

Don't use ringtones, but the intro to Bad Time to be Having a Bad Time is my alarm tone. Pretty sweet noise to wake up to :)

I got very dodgy looks when I used 'This Bed Is On Fire' for a while, starting with the "And when the world makes me wanna keep run run running" line... (you know the rest)

I made a few others, can't remember from what songs now, but I lost the MicroSD card they were on so they're gone.

The gal at the beginning of 'headf**k' would be cool. And/or the 'laughing policeman' from News of the World. Although the 'headf**k' one might get annoying after a while....Anyone know where those are taken from?
