Real Lyrics -> Bad Ringtone Choices -> Billy Joel

I'm not a cell phone owner like most people (I've tried to avoid it as long as I can), but I was thinking certain ring tones might be inappropriate if the phone rings at the wrong time.

I'm not talking about just ringing at a bad time, but more like, picking a tone with lyrics in it like "i like big butts" when passing by a Layne Bryant store. Though, who knows, if you picked that tone maybe that's a good thing.

Bad Ringtone Choices, Billy Joel

Billy Joel's, "An Innocent Man"
The Lyrics:
But I'm not willing to lay down and die
Because I am an innocent man
If your phone went off with this ringtone while you're on trial for any criminal charge, it would be a very awkward courtroom moment to say the least!

Billy Joel's, "It's Still Rock and Roll To Me"
The Lyrics:
Oh, it doesn't matter what they say in the papers
'Cause it's always been the same old scene
There's a new band in town
But you can't get the sound from a story in a magazine...
Aimed at your average teen
You wouldn't want to hear this ringtone blasting from your phone during a music critic's book signing

Billy Joel's, "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)"
The Lyrics:
Workin' too hard can give you
A heart attack (ack-ack-ack-ack)
Not the best ringtone if you're part of an EMT team.

Billy Joel's, "My Life"
The Lyrics:
I don't care what you say anymore
this is my life
Go ahead with your own life leave me alone.
Think of how embarrassing this ring tone would be if you were going through a divorce mediation and your phone went off in your lawyer's office?

Billy Joel's, "Only the Good Die Young"
The Lyrics:
You Catholic girls start much too late,
but sooner or later it comes down to fate.
I might as well be the one.
You wouldn't want your phone's ringtone to be set to this if you're employed by the Catholic Church or any Catholic-related organization
