Like A Ringing Phone

I was snoozing on the bus after a long work day. I became alert when I heard Bob Dylan sing, "How does it feel? Ah, how does it feel?"

The call was for me.

I've got a "Like A Rolling Stone" ringtone. It's the first ringtone I've purchased. I bought it a few weeks ago, needing something that would stand out at the Vans Warped tour event at the Nassau Coliseum parking lot. I figured Dylan's plaintive cry was as agonized and certainly more authentic than most of the emo bands that day. Funny thing about emo: I first thought it was a subgenre inspired by the mopey expressions of comedian Emo Phillips. And maybe I'm right.

Anyway, what did you think I was going to get for a ringtone, "Hips Don't Lie"?
But I do yearn for another latin-themed ringtone. I'd download Joe Cuba's "El Pito (I'll Never Go Back to Georgia)" in a nanosecond. Let me know if it's available somewhere.
