I just received an email...

from Cingular, giving me a coupon code for one free ringtone out of their store for my new cell phone. I browsed through their hundreds of ring tones under every category you can think of. I (right now anyway) refuse to pay two to three bucks for a brief 5-second song clip for a phone few people will ever call anyway, so this was an important decision for me. Because unless people are going to give me gift cards for ring tones at Christmas, whatever one I chose tonight was going to stay on my phone for a loooooong time.

And so I browsed. I browsed in Alternative, Pop Rock, Country, Classic Rock, Classical, Hip Hop, Urban... You name it, I browsed.

And what did I end up with? A song that has withstood the test of time... [drumroll please]... "Jesse's Girl" by Rick Springfield. All is now right with the world...

As the wife of a Jesse, I thoroughly endorse your choice. Rick Springfield is a dork, though, and spelt the song title "Jessie's Girl". I have yet to meet a male Jessie.

Hehe. You know what my ringtone is? "I Had a Bad Day." I am thinking about changing it, but it actually makes me laugh everytime I hear it. And...I love the looks I get when it rings. LOL!

As a Jessie...I was very confused as a 6 yr old child when that song came out :) My mom tried and tried to explain that "Jessie" was a boy...lol. I totally agree about paying that much for a ringtone, though I have broken 2 phones in the past 2 yrs and I have had to "re-buy" my ringtone each time. My ringtone is "Fraggle Rock" It is so ingrained into my boyfriends head that he named our new puppy "Sprocket". LOL

LMAO.
Um, people are going to think your husbands name is Jesse, now. But it is a cool-ass song!

And, really I must add that I'm a little hurt you didn't choose, "Sweet Melissa." Sniff sniff

I used to work in a truck yard at a warehouse. My ringtone was, "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard." I thought it was funny. Until one of the truckers actually recognized the song.
