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”

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

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

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

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

2 20th Century Fox Music

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

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!
- A TheTopTens lover

Too bad Disney took over.

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

Definitely, Memories of this playing in the living room all the times!

3 THX Deep Note

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.

Played at the beginning of movies like Finding Nemo. It was slightly scary but really nostalgic nonetheless.

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

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

4 PlayStation Start Up

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

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.

Personified Fear

5 Nickelodeon Jingle Nickelodeon is an American basic cable and satellite television network launched on December 1, 1977, and is owned by Viacom through Viacom Media Networks and based in New York City.

8 Pac Man Wakka Wakka Pac Man Wakka Wakka Product Image

Iconic sound only PacMan has it

9 Windows XP Startup Sound

To be honest, the sounds used to terrify me, but the Windows XP was the first computer OS I've ever used. My very first computer was a Windows XP, my first laptop was a Windows XP, and all of the school computers were on Windows XP up until around 2011.

Ah yes, I miss Windows XP. Windows 10 is stupid.

I used Windows XP up until late-mid 2016.

I miss Windows XP.

*inhales nostalgia* Ahhhhh.(if you watch spirit stallion of the cimaron you'll see/hear this)

this is still on the first part of every dreamworks movie

12 PS2 Startup Sound

This and the RSOD both used to scare me when I was really little, but it was the first console I ever played.

The sound of "Playing all day in a sunny Sunday"

Still can hear it when I play a game on my PS2

13 "Coming Soon to Theaters"
14 Wii U Menu Music

I think wii menu music is more appropriate here.

Ah yes... memories. Espically the wii sports resort music


15 Disney Channel Jingle

This was back in the golden age of Disney Channel

16 Paramount Feature Presentation
17 Lego Yoda Death Sound
18 Boomerang Bumpers

Too bad Boomerang and Cartoon Network are overshadowed by Nickelodeon and Disney Channel nowadays.

This was my childhood, god I miss those days

The good old cartoons

19 Arthur Intro

I like Arthur. It was one of my favorite shows during my childhood.

🎶every day when you're walking down the street🎶

20 Universal Theme

I remember this logo and the music when I was 2 years old and I also remember when it appeared in Tokyo drift and I can clearly hear the music in my brain

Nostalgia hit me hard

Very majestic theme

21 Kim Possible Ringtone Kimberly Ann "Kim" Possible is a fictional character who appears in the animated television series Kim Possible, voiced by American actress Christy Carlson Romano.

22 Xbox Intro

Brings back memories when I played Minecraft back in like 2014.

I loved playing on my dad's old xbox growing up.

Still in my childhood. 14

23 Wii Shop Channel Music

I used to just look at games wishing I could put money into the machine and buy them, sometimes I would just download demos.

I didn't use it much, but that music definitely brings back some memories.

24 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?

I just loved the background music

that scared me so much when I was younger

I always thought that the guy stealing stuff was kinda cute😚

25 Wii Menu Music

Yeah, the Wii menu music brings back a lot of memories.

I think it was the first console I ever had of my own.

Ah yes, the nostalgia's kicking in

I still have a wii
