And Finally...

Listen to the World Livestock Auctioneer Champions for the last 40 or so years. I see potential for a dance remix.

And the idea of an auctioneer having a hit doesn't suprise me much after seeing this one: The mobile phone ringtone, "Crazy Frog Axel F" has made it's way into the UK charts. If you haven't heard it yet consider yourself lucky. It's basically the Axel Foley theme from Beverly Hills Cop (which by itself is undoubtedly a classic) with an added frog making motorbike noises - but in such a way that it sends shivers up your spine. Rage inducing stuff.

If your aren't blanketed with the frog tone commercials on TV where you live, I think this article best describes it:

Tom has a few good posts on his blog this week but the best would have to be his "Tiny Music Makers" series where he finds out who made those little sounds we hear everyday:

The 'Intel Inside' chimes

The Microsoft Sound

The THX Sound

The Mac Startup Sound

The Channel 4 Jingle

GNW would also like to welcome two new moderators to the forum! Lee_UK (the artist formerly known as Lee) and 1BassLeft have been with us for quite some time now and never fail to offer anything but excellent advice. Their expertise is certainly appreciated around here by all of us. Come say hi.
