The Good, Bad, and Ugly of LG Ringtones

Smart phones scare me. I’ve never much enjoyed the prospect of having a device that is more intelligent than I am, and there’s the whole “irritating ringtone” issue to be taken into consideration, as well.

But now, “thanks” to /Film’s link to LG of UK’s website, I might be forced to reconsider:

Exciting news today as LG officially announce that they have partnered with legendary movie composer Ennio Morricone to provide ringtones for LG’s new smartphones.

Included amongst the 25 compositions will be 15 exclusive new tracks alongside 10 of Morricone’s best-known compositions, including music from Cinema Paradiso, The Mission and Love Affair.

The Annoying Thing going off every time someone calls me? No thanks. But “Gabriel’s Oboe?” Now there’s a ringtone I could get behind.
