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.

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

I forgot about this sound until I came onto this list.

I remember hearing this in School...graduated in 2018...

2 20th Century Fox Music 20th Century Studios is an American film studio which is a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Studios, a division of The Walt Disney Company. The studio is located in Los Angeles and was formerly known as 20th Century Fox before Disney bought Fox on March 20th, 2019.

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

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!

Great music. Made me more exciting for a movie.

3 THX Deep Note

This was an absolute nightmare for me as a kid because I hated loud noises. And I don't know why but the logo made it worse. I think it's a cool sound now but still weird.

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.

Am I the only one who wasn't scared of this logo as a kid?

4 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.

We all remember this one

5 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.

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

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

6 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.

7 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 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?

9 Dreamworks Opening

Oh yeah, always seen this before movies.

No words are required for this.

Yeah I recognize this

10 Paramount Feature Presentation

This and any other logo-related sounds takes me back to when I was a "logo kid" in the late 2000s/early 2010s.

The Contenders
11 Disney Channel Jingle
12 Star Wars Theme

Most of the sounds I remember from my youth were before most things on your list.

13 Super Mario Bros. Theme Song

It's common knowledge

Still a classic

This game came with my Wii when I got it and it was really fun, though I liked Wii Sports Resort better.

This should be number 1.

Nostalgia hit me hard

Very majestic theme

17 Arthur Intro

It's my favourite theme song for now.

20 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.

I still have a wii

I loved the Wii

21 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.

22 Pingu Intro

The intro suits Pingu's show.

23 "Coming Soon to Theaters"

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