Whats your current cell ringtone/text-notification sound?

In the spirit of all the "what are you eating/drinking/playing/purchasing" threads that are here, I thought I'd attempt to add to the fun and start a thread to share your ringtone, text notification sounds, or even ideas/suggestions, didn't see anything like this in the search, so If I missed an already done thread, I apologize.
My Ringer is the ending MIDI from "adventure" on the atari 2600. I don't know why, its such a bizarre sounding LSDish clip I can't help but be fascinated by it.

For text messages, I have a Paul Bettany (as Jarvis from Iron Man) quote.

For ring tone, I think it's still a clip of Shot in the dark by Within Temptation. (Previously it was We used to be friends by The Dandy Warhols)

It's normally set to vibrate only though.

For incoming messages, just the default Nokia Lumia sound.
For the ringtone, "Brand New Breeze" by Kanon.

Re: Whats your current cell ringtone/text-notification sound?

For calls from my wife I use the piano instrumental break from the Beatles In My Life. When I'm irritated with her, I change it to No. 6's "my life is my own" speech from Arrival.

For calls from my son, his current favorite heavy metal song.

For calls from my daughter, the first season theme from The Munsters.

From calls from my son-in-law (who is a lousy driver) the "horn sound and road hog" section from the Mr. Magoo cartoon theme.

For text notifications, the TOS communicator beep.

That's pretty cool!

My ringtone I've Been Waiting by Matthew Sweet for most people. Hot for Teacher by Van Halen for my wife.

Lazarus by Porcupine tree for my daughter.

My text tone is Uhura saying "Captain Kirk: Message from Starfleet Command. Top Priority".

Calls from one friend: Beethoven's "Fur Elise" (piano)
Calls from everyone else: a jazz version of "How Great Thou Art"

Texts are always just inconspicuous iPhone sounds.

Alarms mostly rotate between Brahms' Waltz in A Flat and several Chopin pieces.

On my previous phone, I used the TNG Red Alert and, for business calls, Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues". I worked in corrections.

I have a Minion laugh for texts/iMessages (the Minions are a recurring theme on my iPhone! ) and the Law & Order "Doink-doink" for email.
