I don't know whether somebody has already made such a thread, but as you can assign individual ringtones on your phone to individual people, what if you could assign ringtones to different skyscrapers? What do you think is the best song to describe the feeling you get when you look at a certain skyscraper? For now four come to my mind:

1, Old World Trade Center - In the end




2, Slaughterhotel - Opening to hell




3, Burj khalifa - I believe I can fly




4, Willis Tower - O fortuna

The lyrics may or may not have anything to do with the building, but this is what I imagine when I see those buildings...

1.World Trade Center...

Another Brick In The Wall Part 2 - Pink Floyd

2.Ryugyong Hotel...
This badass building needs a badass song.

Killing In The Name - Rage Against The Machine

3.Burj Khalifa...

Anthem Of The World - Stratovarius

4.Sears Tower...

Won't get fooled again - The Who

5.Abraj-al Bait...

Tunak Tunak Tun

6.New WTC...

Bliss - Muse

7.And finally... *drumroll*
Grand Lisboa with the rightly deserved...

...Chaccaron Maccaron.

I might have more later...

Both of you had some great choices.

When I think of the Sears Tower I think of this massive beast of a building, with a powerful yet stunning facade. It is one of those buildings that really blows you away in person. So both songs definitely fit.

Great choices for Burj Khalifa, since it is currently the king of the world

For WTC 1 I might go with a personal favorite, Survivalism by NIN, but I honestly don't really know if I would agree with that.

For Slaughter House, I will go with Laid to Rest from Lamb of God

Abby creeps the hell outta me. I think the Undead victory song from Warcraft 3 best expresses this feeling.

I think Tuntex Sky Tower deserves this for being, in my opinion, the creepiest building.

John Hancock Center

Paradise City - Guns N' Roses

Aon Center

White Wedding - Billy Idol

Moscow IBC

'Nuff said.

I totally agree, scary sh*t, what are the chances of this thing collapsing during high wind or major earthquake?

This building (Lloyd's in London) looks like some sort of machine, so it needs music made by machines:

Columbia Center in Seattle gets a song by a Seattle band!


And Oriental Pearl Tower gets...this.

For all the new WTC buildings 1,2,3,4,7


"You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass, like I’m made of paper
And go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper"

If you play that song at the site it could make people cry...

There is no better fitting song for one of the most beautiful skyscrapers in Europe, the Moscow University.

I'm not a communist, but I think the song's power matches this building well.

Trump World Tower


Zengdi Kongzhong, Huaxi, looks like an alien base. Its hideousness gets it a creepy song:

Cheap D.J. Ware Jersey

ball terror awaits Barnes
BERRICK Barnes has happy memories of hufhfguh401 fullback, having rediscovered Cheap D.J. Ware Jersey his confidence there a year ago when he made his long ago NIKE New York Giants Women Jersey originating from a few sickening head knocks, but she's acutely aware Argentina perform everything possible tonight to sour the love of their position.
Slotting in Chris Long Jersey at fullback for Sydney University rrnside the Shute Shield competition was an additional. Donning the 15 jersey the 1st time inside their representative career against likely the most kick-happy teams in world rugby quite critical Test together with the Rugby Championship at Skilled Park towards the Gold Coast truly challenge of your entirely different magnitude -- only one Barnes insists he or she is up for.
Hopefully he will mean that incredibly literal plus metaphorical sense because, when he set it up yesterday, up-and-unders is documented on him because of the boot of Pumas five-eighth Juan Martin Hernandez tonight.
Unless Barnes will definitely get himself airborne to manufacture consumption, a la Adam Ashley-Cooper, he'll almost quickly discover information on how contestable Argentina's kicking game will be.
Already he has been stop by resemble Ashley-Cooper of hospitality attire respect. This really is Barnes's third position in four Tests inside tournament, having already started at five-eighth and inside centre, but he will be acutely aware for a lot of his versatility, which is not what exactly keeping him from a team.
Rather they are his goalkicking, currently ticking from 86 per cent this 2012.
Still, the Ed Reed Jersey minimum need for any Test fullback is usually that he be capable of facilitating catch the top ball.
could take truley what determines tomorrow, Barnes acknowledged. trained as hard because i can for this. safe to say that Barnes found his feet again in rugby at 15 but as then his critics would argue obtained been finding his feet at the same time often, regularly kicking away valuable possession.
In that regard, coach Robbie Deans's decision to interchange him to fullback could prove a masterstroke because, as Israel Elite Terrell McClain Jersey Dagg has so amply demonstrated during the All Blacks this season, no position over a rugby field so richly rewards ball-runners.
