So, pretty much ever since I’ve learned that ringtones can be composed and distributed, I’ve wanted to have the Engineer’s Drinking Song as a ringtone. For those not in the know of the MIT lore, there is some background info and lyrics here, here and here.
The ringtone itself was composed as part of some MIT ringtone competition at H-Lounge. Get it here. When I got it, it was free, but they supposedly will start charging a few bucks to send it to you. The way it worked for me, was to give them my phone number, and they sent a text message with the audio file attached. I was able to save the attachment and optionally set it as my ringtone. It’s actually a fairly good rendition.
