The Aussie Top Ten Ringtones
By Grigoriy Anoshenko
Australia just like any other
place in the world has succumbed no differently to the temptation of mobile
phone ring tones. It has been reported that a very high number of teenagers are
getting hooked on to mobile phones and in turn mobile phone content usage. As
per reports, mobile phone ring tones enjoy a mass popularity with this young
group because of their strong desire to express themselves through their
appearances, and behaviour. There is a constant need to express their attitude
and make a statement about their social, cultural, sexual, and political
preferences. An undercurrent hidden need that runs through this entire group is
to carve out a distinct personality for themselves. And always be ahead in the
race for popularity and high on the cool quotient.
Marketers, as born keen opportunists, have jumped the bandwagon in communicating
aggressively with this group and in ways that are more than merely successful in
simply enticing them. They have made them brand loyal towards their products and
services that are easily available over the internet. Several websites offering
mobile phone ring tone downloads are continuously upgrading their list of latest
offerings, and in their attempt to hype the mania even further, they have
dedicated resources for scouring and listing the ‘Top 10 ring tones for the
Week’ and so on and so forth; just to ensure that there is regular loyal traffic
on their web page. However, due to the lack of a universal body governing the
ring tone industry and non – availability of measuring tools to rate the
popularity of ring tones on a global basis, it is difficult even for experts to
make an all encompassing comprehensive list of ‘Top 10’ mobile phone ring tones
for any region.
According to recent reports having come in this new year, Australia’s current
hot favourites would include these for sure, apart from anything else that may
have become a trend as well.

top of many lists and going by its popularity it’s a hot favourite video tone as
Leona Lewis’ Bleeding Love is another popular ring tone and video tone.
It was probably only natural for artist Timbaland’s Apologize featuring
OneRepublic, to make its presence felt on the charts across websites. A definite
hit with those that enjoy rap.
It’s definitely good to see Britney in the news for all the right reasons. And
after all doesn’t an artiste always want his or her work to speak for itself.
Spears’ Piece of Me has definitely been successful in grabbing a piece off the
Grammy award winner, Santana’s another composition, Into the Night, featuring
Chad Kroeger, is doing well for itself on the lists too.
Alicia Keys croons No One, yet gets everyone to listen to her and want a ring
tone of her composition.
Chris Brown featuring T- pain’s Kiss Kiss has kissed its competitors goodbye and
made its way to the top of the lists.
Crank That by Soulja Boy Tell Em has gone down very well with the hip – hop and
And this one may sound strange only if you don’t know what a wild life loving
country Australia is. Ring tones of wild animals, pets, birds, and the famous
Croc SNAP, have always had their ardent fan following.
Nickelback’s hitting it hard with Rockstar being downloaded as a monotone,
polyphonic ring tone, and a real tone.
