What are the top ringtones of all time?

As the ringtone boom starts to ebb following the launch of more and more Mp3 –enabled phones in the market, it is time to look back. A research by MusicAlly in the U.K. shows that in the U.K. alone, the UK ringtone market will reduce by almost 20 per cent in 2006.

So, what have been the mot popular ringtones of all time? The time has ome to make your lists.

1. “In Da Club” – 50 Cent
2. “Stairway to Heaven” – Led Zeppelin
3. “Sweet Home Alabama” – Lynyrd Skynyrd
4. “Super Mario Brothers” Game Theme
5. “Halloween” Movie Theme
6. “The Next Episode” - Dr. Dre
7. “Mission Impossible” Theme Song
8. “Sandstorm” – DaRude
9. “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” Theme Song
10. “The Jetsons” Theme Song

I found this list at many sites. For example, here and again, here.

Top 40 charts has a list of most popular songs based on world-wide ringtones salesfigures.

Here is alist of Most Popular Polyphonic Ringtone Downloads at Wallpaper World.

Uncyclopedia lists out the Worst 100 Ringtones of All Time.

Here is a tentative list I am thinking of compiling:
1. Top Indian ringtones of all time.
2. Best and worst Nokia ringtones of all time.
