Does anybody have practical notification sounds that WON'T make me look like a manchild in public?

Most of the sounds posted so far were used by kids I went to high school with...

Who cares? If you like something, own it.

And besides, most of these video game/movie/TV show/what-have-you notifications are very distinct and instantly recognizable. I know that when I hear the Power Rangers communicator tone, I have no doubt that that's my phone going off.

I like the one called Facebook pop, short, discrete and still loud enough to hear it

The notification sound that I desire is the sound of the vidphond in the film Blade Runner when Decard's call ends. I already have the vidphone ringer sound as my ringtone, which I think is the bsst ringtone ever. But I cant find the hangup sound clip anywhere on the internet. One day I hope to find it.

BUMP.

Does anyone have the stock "polaris" notification sound found on the GNex/Nexus7? My Nexus 4 doesn't have it for some reason. Thanks.

I use a Super Mario World sound. But its a sound that isn't one of the most recognizable ones. If people didn't grow up playing it all the time, it would actually sound like a normal notification tone. I attached the file if anyone else wants it.

Here's a link to my dropbox: polaris notification

You will find it in the notification directory.
