Soundtrack to your life... er, MY life

So, I'm having a ton of fun with my new phone. I got it free because I extended my contract. That is the only reason I now have a cool phone. I've had a ghetto phone fo-eva. Now I went from "totally geek, to totally chic." Anyway, on my cool new phone I can download music from my computer and play it on my phone. I can also assign said songs to certain people as their ring!! It's been fun to say the least... the very least...
Anyway, here's what I've chosen for some of my family so far: (And these music clip thingies better work because this whole post was a pain in the butt!!)

This was a toss up. I almost did "House of the Rising Sun" by the Animals because he said he wants it played on the organ at his funeral. Too bad it's about a whore house... Instead I chose this:

Love Theme From "The Godfather" - Nino Rota

She was easy. I mean, there was a ton of songs I could have used like anything by Bon Jovi or Debbie Gibson or Tiffany. (I don't know how many times she listened to that Tiffany song "The flowers you gave me, are just about to die. When I think about what could've been, makes me want to cry..." GAG.) But instead I chose this song, because she used to dress up in my dad's trench coat and hat and lip sync it in our living room:

Invincible - Pat Benatar

Woogs was easy. I introduced him to Metallica, so it's only fitting he have a Metallica ring:

Enter Sandman - Metallica

She was a little harder. I could think of things, but nothing seemed just right. Then my sister suggested "Brickhouse." Perfect-o!

Shes a Brickhouse - Commodores

I downloaded "Bad Boys"- you know, the theme from "Cops." But that's not what I'm using right now. When he calls me now, this is what I hear:

Tecnology Song (Always and Forever) - New Artist

Tristan picked his own although I kept teasing him I was going to put "Summer Girls" by LFO as his ring. He hates this song. I don't know HOW you can hate this song!!

Summer Girls - LFO

Instead, he picked Goofy Goober- ROCK! from Spongebob.

Spongebob Squarepants - Im A Goofy Goober ROCK.mp3 - Spongebob Squarepants

Now, ME
I find a song choice for myself to be harder than anything. I've already switched 3 times since Friday. 1st I had "Newborn" by Muse. Then "Cruel Summer" by Bananarama. I think I may just switch depending on my mood. Today my mood says:

Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby.mp3 -

What song is YOUR soundtrack??

What song do you hear and think "Oh, that's Tori:)!" (Because I know you do that...;)

"Turning Japanese."

HA! Kidding!

JustRandi said...

Now you've got Cruel Summer going around in my head and I can't think of another song!

swampbaby said...

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh, oh! The right stuff!

S said...

IT worked!!! Yo VIP! Are you going to be one of those people who do not answer the phone because they like the song playing? Where is Omar's ringtone?

swampbaby said...

That was me singing, by the way, not just going "oh oh oh!!!" You have to have a NKOTB song. Duh.

K said...

I caught the NKOTB reference, Swampbaby!

I don't have any cool ringtones on my phone. I'm afraid I'd be all "Who's radio is playing?" and not realize it was my own stinkin' phone ringing.

When I was in college, my roommates and I had the Doors song "Hello, I love you. Won't you tell me your name?" as our answering machine message.

"She's a brick----house
Mighty mighty, just lettin' it all hang out
She's a brick----house
The lady's stacked and that's a fact,
ain't holding nothing back."

Your mom's letting it all hang out.

Before I read any comments, I was thinking something NKOTB.

I am jamming to Invincible by doing THE 80's dance. ..snapping my fingers and moving my arms back and forth.

Go rent Teen Wolf or Better Off Dead and forward to the dance scenes if you don't know what I mean.

Physcokity said...

Karina said...

MY husband's ring is Please don't go girl by NKOTB. Recently i've had It's Tricky by Run DMC on my head, but I totally see you getting funky to that song.
Tr-tr-tr-tricky (Tricky) Trrrrrrrrrrricky!

Klin said...

I was starting to worry about

Mr would like you to program his number in with the same ringer as your dad. He was like moving to it. It was funny.

My soundtrack is "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." and when I hear "Rock on, drive me crazy, yeah, no serenade, no fire brigade. . ."

I'm sure you know where that comes from ;)

aubrey said...

i'm too lazy to look on my phone, but my ringtone is "brown eyed girl" by van morrison or weezer's "only in dreams" that sounds cool as a ringtone. my sister's ring tone is the "sisters" song from white christmas. or "heaven must be missin an angel". paul's is beastie boys "paul revere". my girlfriends all have that one song by whatshername "just like a star" as their ringtones. oh and {looking now} fatboy slims "everybody loves a criminal" is a freakin awesome song for a ringtone. a tad bit abnoxious but i love it. and last but not least madonna's "get together" has a sweet schoolbell ring at the beginning.

as for YOUR ringtone, if i could pick a song for you..it would definitely be an NKOTB song. i have ice ice baby on my blog playlist right this SECOND.

Tori :) said...

Rock of Ages!!!!! Yeah!
