Will you be downloading Ode to Joy as a ringtone?

    "Remainers are on a mission to get European Union anthem Ode to Joy to Number 1 in the next official chart - which is revealed on January 31st, the date of the UK's departure.

    Pro-European activists have chosen a live version performed by Dutch conductor Andre Rieu, and accompanied by the Johann Strauss Orchestra, as the track they are encouraging Remainers to download.

    The song has already jumped from #48 in the downloads chart on Sunday, to #24 on Monday, to #2 early on Tuesday morning.

    It has already topped the Amazon downloads chart."

    I think if everyone who voted remain downloaded it as a ringtone and called called each other at the moment Brexiters wanted Big Ben to chime, it would drown out any cheers.

    I already have it. But the Wendy Carlos version.

    People still use ringtones?

    How else will you know when your phone is ringing?

    Mine is a recording of my barbershop chorus singing a song what I wrote. It scares the bejesus out of me when it goes off.

    Very popular tune throughout Europe. Here is the Furtwangler version for a special birthday

    Seems like it's got more of a chance than the Big Ben bongs.

    I did hear the swivel eyed loons are planning a p**s up in a brewery to celebrate now, it's on Friday (or maybe Thursday) at 6 (or 7.30) pm (maybe am), meet in the Kings/Queens Head/Arms. If you can't find anyone then head to the nearest bus shelter with a big bottle of White Lightning.

    As an early adopter, I have the Walter Carlos version

    How puerile!
    FWIW my phone rings with a traditional telephone ring. I'm more likely to answer if it sounds like a phone.....anything else and I'm more likely to burst into song or do a little dance.

    We've had the bongs to get remainers upset
    We've had the 50p and the Oxford comma to get both sides upset
    Now the ringtone to get leavers upset.

    Only 2 days to create another pre-Brexit outrage

    Ring tones?

    Idiots are so easily parted from their money.

    I’m still pondering the logistics of this. We’d all be engaged, surely? ;)

    It's not being downloaded as a ringtone. it's being downloaded as a music track.
    There would be no ringtone noise as all the phones would be engaged.

    I know, but it's available as a ringtone. https://www.zedge.net/find/ringtones/ode%20to%20joy
    Having it as a ringtone rather than a music track allows others to enjoy it, wherever you are.
