Top of the hops

It's possibly the most annoying phone noise you'll ever hear - but today it's at Number 1

Life as a frog comes with few advantages. One is that you have special, flush-fitting ears that cushion the sound of anti-social croaking, and protect you from the pestilence of the Crazy Frog ringtone. Mother Nature was merciful when she fitted frogkind with its lugs, but humans got no such break.

advertisementAnd, consequently, no escape from this: "A ding ding ding ding dididing ding bing bing pscht, Dorhrm bom bom bedom bem bom bedom bom bum ba ba bom, Bouuuuum bom bom bedahm, Bom be barbedarm, Bbrrrrrimm bbrrrrramm bbbrrrrrrr-rraammmmm ddddddraammm, Bah bah baah baah ba wheeeeeee-eeeee-eeeee!"

It's on the train, in the street, all over the television. And as of today it is top of the charts - the first mobile ringtone ever to reach Number One. How did this happen? The pop cognoscenti have been confidently predicting for months that Coldplay, everyone's favourite gloom-drenched, middle-class niceboys, would seize the top spot with their long-awaited Speed of Sound. Instead we have a singing frog in biker leathers. And there are still seven months until Christmas.

Which leaves plenty of time for the first Crazy Frog murder, Crazy Frog divorce, Crazy Frog unfair dismissal case, and mass outbreak of Crazy Frog phone rage. You used to think that a fly buzzing around the bedroom was irritating? And Loyd Grossman's nasal drawl got on your nerves? They sound like Debussy next to the Crazy Frog, and here's the really grim news. The ringtone takeover of popular music has hardly begun.

The average British teenager now spends more on ringtones - around £26 a year - than on CD singles. For that kind of money you want something that sets you apart and, frankly, a restrained burble-burble doesn't cut it. Mobile phone fashions change faster than you can say Rebecca Loos. The market needs gimmicks, and, to the anguish of the happily-burbled mainstream, that is where Crazy Frog comes in.

The rogue amphibian was spawned, so to speak, seven years ago by Daniel Armdahl, a 17-year-old Swedish computer salesman possessed of an otherwise unpromising talent for impersonating motor-bikes. Well, the nights are long and dark in Gothenburg and you have to fill them somehow. One day, bored with doing his big, smooth, 1450cc Harley-Davidson Electra Glide, Daniel grew his repertoire with the sound of a constipated two-stroke moped. He recorded it onto his computer and played it to his friends: "We found it very, very funny," he says. "We laughed until we cried."

The mirth might have been contained had not one of the friends posted the sound onto the internet. It was heard by a Swedish television station, which excitedly booked Armdahl to perform it live. Its renown spread and eventually came to the notice of Eric Wernquist, a 27-year-old graphic designer, who liked it "because it was so irritating". He added a blue-hued animated frog character in a flasher pose, and put it on his website. Now Crazy was set to take a giant leap for frogkind.

The American-owned ringtone company Jamster acquired the rights to the sound and graphics, began advertising it on MTV and youth-oriented television shows, and millions of customers have been downloading it ever since. "Wherever we have launched, " says Markus Berger-de Leon, the company's chief operating officer, "it has been number one in the ringtone chart. We are working on this 24/7." And then the real problems began. An obscure German dance duo, Bass Bumpers, adapted the ringtone to a version of Harold Faltermayer's Beverly Hills Cop theme, and released it as a single. Last week it was selling at the rate of 25,000 a day - four times faster than the hapless Coldplay's lovingly crafted effort. "It isn't surprising that it is heading for Number One," said Gennaro Castaldo of HMV records. "The only issue is whether the record company can press enough copies to meet the demand."

Actually, that's not the only issue. The success of Crazy Frog has nightmarish implications for the record industry. For a start, it signals a profound change in the way that music is marketed. Already, WH Smith and Walmart, owner of Asda, have stopped selling CD singles. Teenagers prefer to download songs directly from the internet to their iPods, MP3 players or mobiles. Another German group, the Panda Babies, recently became the first band to release an album only as a ring tone. Dressed in furry suits they described themselves as "four pandas for a better world", and have been duly hailed as "the future of music publishing".

Look at it this way. Last week EMI blamed much of a £21 million drop in its annual profits on delays to Coldplay's forthcoming album. The entire cost of the Crazy Frog release is estimated to be less than £25,000. Dorhrm bom bom!

None of which means that the Crazy Frog wouldn't look better under a car tyre. Real frogs, or some of them, can croak at 105 decibels and be heard three miles away, which is why their hearing systems are cleverly designed to prevent them blowing their eardrums out. Denied such defences, humans are without an escape from the frog ringtone and the consequences of its infuriating ubiquity.

Their plight is well-chronicled on a BBC website: "I have been gnawing my fists off as a result of this infuriating noise," complained one correspondent. "Any time I hear it I can tell exactly the type of personality of this person, and I want to smack them across the head," fumed Brian from Dublin. Is there an alternative? Millions of them. As the mobile universe expands, the simple summons of the phone has become a sub-branch of popular culture.

There are ringtones that offer to help you quit smoking, find a girlfriend, combat the onset of baldness, and catch more fish. Tens of thousands of Japanese women recently signed up for a ringtone that claims to increase the size of their breasts. Invented by one Hideto Tombabechi, an "alternative lifestyle guru" credited with rehabilitating members of the AUM Shinrikyo doomsday cult, the bust-booster ringtone is said to help "mind and body commune unconsciously". One woman told Japanese television: "I listened all the time for a week. Incredibly my bust grew from 34 to 35 inches. It was awesome."

Everybody's in on the act. Earlier this year the London Symphony Orchestra, founded in 1904 and the spiritual home of Edward Elgar, Thomas Beecham and André Previn, became the first major orchestra to record and sell ringtones. The choices available to punters include the Grand March from Aida, Beethoven's Ninth and the theme from Thunderbirds.

The British Library is hungry for business, too, offering the pick of its 100,000 recordings of bird and animal noises. Serenade your date with the delicate trill of a nightingale, impress your business pals with the earthy mating cry of a warthog, show you're hip with the basso profondo croak of a fat, slim… No, no! The frog market's already cornered. And worse is on the way. For the industry is united in predicting that Crazy Frog's success will ensure an invasion of even more annoying characters making ever more intolerable noises.

What does all this say about us? Martin Skinner, a psychologist at Warwick University, believes that ringtone choice can be an accurate guide to personality. The simple burble, he suggests, points to practicality, the popular Mission Impossible theme to insecurity, and the music from M*A*S*H to sentimentality. In other words, there is a whole world of possibilities out there. And one thing is certain. It is time to forget Coldplay. The future belongs to pondlife.
