11:59 pm - Answer the Phone. IT IS YOUR DESTINY!
Because I am a loyal T-Mobile customer, I have been awarded 5 free ringtones. I have to download them by November 30, however, and I am terrible at making decisions! HELP MEEEEEE.

See, I am not a fan of ringtones that are just clips of songs! Because I don't want my phone to be singing to me! I like my ridiculously synthesized, wordless versions. But those appear to be on the outs, sadly. My current ringtone is a lovely little approximation of "Sour Times." I like my ringtones to be a little mellow, but that's generally because the synthesized versions of more upbeat and rockin' songs tend to sound really obnoxious. Like the one I had of "Bandages," which was kind of fun anyway.

Anyway! If I'm forced to have high-quality ringtones, at least I can find ones that don't have words. Plus, these are more expensive than the others, so I ought to get my free money's worth. I've narrowed it down to fifteen options. Some are nice and mellow, and others make me want to dance. Unless otherwise specified, assume the ringtone is a fifteen- to twenty-second sample of the opening or, in the case of the electronica, the most salient portion of the song. Also assume that the ringtone doesn't contain any words; listen to the music underneath.

Thanks for helping out! If you don't care about my ringtones, at least you can listen to some of my favorite songs, right?

Also, one of the music videos features a monkey playing a guitar. I won't say which one.
