Top 10 Most Memorable Sounds From Your Childhood

If you remember any of these sounds, you are a true 90s or 2000s kid.

The Top Ten

1 “Coming soon to own on video and DVD”

YES! I love watching the trailers on older movies just for this!

The 2000s was a better time okay. Na I still hear this from time to time

I remember watching this logo during the previews of cars on my DVD player back in 2009

It used to play at the beginning of a lot of the movies I liked when I was little like Toy Story.

2 20th Century Fox Music

Too bad Disney took over.

I know this is still played on occasion, but still...

Yes I still can listen to it on our DVD Player. Wow I'm depressed now... I wish I was younger... I wish I never moved... I wish I stayed in Maryland!

Ahh watching movies like Rio and that theme playing, so theatrical. Especially when you had the TV turned up all the way, felt as if you were right in the theater

I remember this quite well.

3 THX Deep Note

I thought I had escaped this but then I went to high school and the bell turned out to be exactly the same as the thx sound

I was terrified of it and thought I would die if I wasn't sitting down when it came on

I remember as a very young kid, I'd be scared if I was all alone watching TV and then the THX logo came on. But now I think it's cool.

Whenever we loaded up a Pixar movie, I cupped my hands over my ears knowing this was coming

4 PlayStation Start Up

This is the time where you have to beg to god, close your eyes, and hoping the game will loaded

Crash Bandicoot and Final Fantasy were my favorite games on the PS1. I miss playing them.

I used to play Spyro all of the time, so this startup was a pretty big part in my early childhood as well.

Nostalgia hit me hard

22 You Wouldn't Steal a Car (Piracy Video)

The “Coming soon to own on video and DVD” listing reminded me of this. It was so creepy that it made us not wanna ever steal movies. It even still gives me the chills today probably because the sounds are still as scary as before and the nostalgic memory I have of it puts me a little on edge. Who feels me?
