Because I specialize in “nerd” and in celebration of last Thursday’s season premiere of the sixth season of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” I whipped up a ringtone of the show’s all-too-catchy intro music that is available for download below.  But before you download you must always learn, so here is what Wikipedia has on Heinz Kiessling’sTemptation Sensation:”

The theme song is a piece of production music called “Temptation Sensation” by German composer Heinz Kiessling. Additionally, Kiessling’s work (“On Your Bike” and “Blue Blood”) can also be heard during various scene transitions throughout the show, along with other composers and pieces such as Christopher Movick (“Off Boradway”), Joe Brook (“Moonbeam Kiss”) and Karl Grell (“Honey Bunch”). Many of the tracks heard in the series have been taken from Cafe Romantique, an album of easy listening production music collected by Extreme Music, the production music library unit of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Independent record label, Fervor Records has also contributed music to the show. Songs from The Jack Gray Orchestra’s album, Easy Listening Symph-O-Nette (“Take A Letter Miss Jones”, “Golly Gee Whiz”, and “Not a Care in the World”) and the John Costello III release Giants of Jazz (“Birdcage”, “Cotton Club” and “Quintessential”) are heard in several episodes. The soundtrack, featuring most of the music heard on the show was released on September 1, 2010.

Now, on to the stealing sharing:

You can download the ringtone in .m4r format (open it up, and it should go directly to the “Ringtones” section of iTunes) right here:

Imagine your ringtone = this

Are you having trouble convincing your friends that you didn’t actually just hop on the Phillies bandwagon immediately after the NLCS? Do you want to show that you’ve actually been a devoted Phillies fan your entire life, so much so that you have them as your ringtone? Or maybe you just had to leave for the Democratic Republic of the Congo 35 minutes before the start of Game 5 and end up having to watch them clinch by yourself in Central Africa, so now you feel that hearing Harry Kalas call the final strike of the World Series every time your phone rings is the closest thing to having been in town when the Phils actually clinched?*  Regardless of the reason, if you want that Phillies World Champion ringtone then you’ve come to the right place!

Phillies World Series Champions iPhone Ringtones

NOTE: These have only been tested with the iPhone, and I am pretty sure that they will only work with an iPhone.  However, I’m more than willing to put them up as .mp3′s or whatever else that will help get them onto your phone; I’m kind of a nerd, so just let me know, and I’ll see what I can do. You can also click here to learn how to turn your mp4 to mp3.

How to Get Them On Your iPhone

First, to download a file, just right-click on the link and click on “Save Link As” (or the equivalent).  When they are finished downloading and you double-click/open the files, they should automatically go to the “Ringtones” section of ITunes.  From there you just plug your iPhone in, drag them from the “Ringtones” section onto your phone and, voila: get ready to relive the greatest moment of your life over-and-over again every single day (depending on how cool you are)!

*Yes, that was me. And, no, I don’t want to talk about it.  Ever.

UPDATE (4/13/09): In response to the activity on my blog today in response to the passing of Harry Kalas, I’ve added links to download all the ringtones as .mp3′s below each one, with the hope that everyone can now hold onto a piece of that beautiful voice forever.

I found these instructions and have verified myself that it works perfectly. I can’t imagine that there is an easier way than this; enjoy!

You can actually make your own ringtones. No websites/external softwares needed.

However this does not apply to the songs you donwloaded via itunes. If you get the tracks from other sites or ripped from your CDs this will work like magic.

1. Pick your song you want to turn into a ringtone in iTunes.
2. Right click>Get Info or File>Get Info or Apple>I.
3. Go to Options when the Get Info window opens.
4. Click the check boxes to initiate Start and Stop time, manually entering the start and finish time of the song you want as a ringtone but MAKE SURE IT IS UNDER 30 SECONDS!!!
5. Now, hit Okay.
6. Next, go to Advanced>Convert Selection to AAC, this will create a copy of the song, but just the portion you want as a ringtone. If it says “convert to mp3″ isntead, just go to preferences to change it to AAC and you’ll be fine.
7. The copy will be right under the original in iTunes, you will see the difference in times with the selection you chose should be at a ringtone length, like :30 seconds or so. Right-click on the selection and choose Show in Finder, or File>Show in Finder, it should be an m4a file.
8. Simply click on the file name to edit it and change it to an m4r, this will change it into a ringtone to be recognized by iTunes.
9. Go back to iTunes, find the short selection of the song that you converted to a ringtone and drag it out of iTunes to your desktop.
10. It will make a copy of it and it should now be in your iTunes and desktop. Then, back in iTunes, delete the selection you just moved to the desktop.
11. Double-click on the file you dragged to your desktop and it should open up and play in the “Ringtones” section of your iTunes.
12. Sync.
