Rant: A ringing sound would suffice

Today I would like to rant about the current trend of having tinny music, instead of a normal ringing sound, play to people when they call a mobile phone (and no, I'm not talking about ringtones; I'm talking about what the caller hears while waiting for their call to be picked up).This would be a brilliant idea if the music didn't sound like it had been rerecorded 17 times on an old tape deck then forced into the caller's ear with a turkey baster.

This would be a brilliant idea if the music didn't sound like it had been rerecorded 17 times on an old tape deck then forced into the caller's ear with a turkey baster. I like music. I think a song worth hearing is generally best heard for a period of longer than 6 seconds, and certainly best heard at a quality that actually lets you tell what song it is. Otherwise, a ringing sound will do just fine.

OK, rant over. Thank you for your time, and goodnight.
