You are Don Juan From "Don Juan De Marco."

Woobaby! You are Don Juan – dark and handsome, and the world’s greatest lover. Some people find you to be a bit insane (or is that insanely sexy?). While you may not be playing with all 52 cards, don’t let that get you down – you’re a true romantic at heart.

    I knew I wasn’t the only person with “Hall of the Mountain King” on my cell phone. Though, when we update to a modern phone with real sound on it, I’m going to try to get a version with the full chorus….

    I have the Once More with Feeling soundtrack too. I sing along when I have it on…

    God help me, I’m Ed Wood. And not just because I like to wear women’s clothing.

    I got Ed Wood too…

    My ringtone is not “hall of the Mountain King” I don’t think. I don’t know my Grieg that well, but I think it’s “Asa’s Tod”
