According to a cell phone ringtone critic who blogs at coolringtones.blogspot.com the hip hop number is No. 1 on his list.
Jonathan Bentz says a real song that great ringtones are made from the intro, hook or solo part of a real song.
Also, he says a ringtone should be recognizable when heard.
Thats why he says, 50s first No. 1 hit has a bass line built for making heads bob.
And while Bentz says rock songs dont usually make good ringtones, he picks Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin as the No. 2 top ringtone because the guitar solo in the beginning is classic.
Some other digital ditties on the list include the Super Mario Brothers theme; the Halloween movie theme; and The Jetsons theme song.
