Unique PSB Ringtones

While there's no shortage of unofficial PSB cellphone ringtones circulating in cyberspace, the Pet Shop Boys themselves have turned quite a few of their songs into cellphone ringtones. (At one time they were readily available online, but I'm no longer able to locate them.) Three of these official PSB ringtones, however, are unique "exclusives"—that is, they're not even based on previously released material. Instead they originally existed solely as ringtones created in early 2006 specifically for that purpose by Chris and Neil. More than a decade later, the Boys gave them more widespread release as brief bonus tracks with the 2017 reissue of Fundamental.

There's really not much to these brief segments of music, which accounts for the great brevity of the following entries.

An upbeat bit of technopop offered in both a standard and an extended version. It features a vocodorized vocal (Chris, perhaps?) singing the title phrase.

Nine seconds of ambient, light, yet somewhat spooky sound.

Lovely and atmospheric. Neil sings, "Hello—where are you? Pick up the phone, please."
