Janis Ian
Free Ringtones

It all started when Janis, John, and Pat all got new Cellphones (Specifically, Motorola RAZRs). The webmaster at the time, not being able to leave things alone, immediately doped up ringtone of "Jackie Skates" from Folk is the New Black as a distinctive ring for Janis. Then Janis heard it and said "You know, some fans might like that..."

Pat just called the webmaster a "Suck up".

So, here's the deal: You can download and use these ring tones for personal use only. These are the correct format for Motorola type phones, but it's up to you to figure out how to install and use them, or to determine their suitability for other phones. (The software provided with your cell phone usually will have some sort of file installer). Please don't ask the webmaster how to install files on your phone, no cell phone support is available here. To quote Elwood Blues "Whadya want for nuthin'?"

We hope that you'll like these so much that you can't help but go to our STORE and buy the album or make a donation to the Pearl Foundation.

If your computer wants to play these automatically when you click the download button, and you actually want to save them, try a "Right click > Save as" maneuver. That always works!

Mandatory legal disclaimer: The ringtones are provided gratis for personal use only. Any resale of these files is a violation of so many laws that we aren't even going to go into it. Files are provided without any warranty or guarantee. If you somehow damage your phone trying to install them, don't come crying to us...
