RE: Question on "cell phone ringtones"
Oh yes, I got the same offer from my CD on CD Baby. They wanted to know
if they could use one of my songs for cell phone calls that folks DON'T
want to answer...you know, solicitors, ex-girlfriends, ex-wives,
mother-in-laws, the IRS, the drafting office of the National Guard, the
Musician's Friend bill collection agency (sorry Ted, no offense), etc.
So one of my 12 minute songs filled with many overtones and disturbing
weirdness was a perfect fit!
...just kidding. :) Sounds like a fun or interesting opportunity for

Subject: Question on "cell phone ringtones"
Since a lot of you guys have stuff up at CD Baby I would like to ask
you about this bizarre offer I just received. Within minutes of my CD
going up at CD Baby a mail arrived from a company that want to use
music as ringtones! Is that "normal"? Did you also get those kind of
"offers"? I can't help getting suspicious with some one using the word
"cel phone" ;-)
"we sell ringtones and wallpaper to cel phones. I
would like to speak to you about using your material for ringtones. I
think rigntones fit the loop/spoken word style very well."
