Personal Theme Music

Bluetooth powered iPhone app plays music people have chosen as their theme when they're in close proximity.
  [vote for,

While you're listening to your podcast or music walking down the street with this app on, as somebody else with the same app approaches you, what you're currently listening to fades out and their chosen theme music fades in as they walk by.

Darth Vader walking by would be accompanied by the Imperial March for instance.

I can't think of any other examples, so this would just be for Darth Vader.

If John Travolta walks past, it plays "Stayin' Alive".

       Are we not just re-enacting the running joke on QI, where the punchline always begins "... and Alan goes ..." ?

       Actually, there's a serious flaw with this idea: If you're driving your car and your car collides with another car, your proximity to the other driver will cause their theme music to play over your car's hi-fi. However, it may be more appropriate to play your Fatal Auto Collision Song - how will the contention between these two protocols be resolved?
hippo, Jan 28 2020

       If the vehicle has sustained damage such that the backup FACS system activates (catastrophic loss of main power bus, airbag triggering) then that's what you get; otherwise the entertainment system (presumably linked to your smartphone) belts out your opponent's soundtrack.

       They actually have accident notification on tracking apps that could be used to trigger the famous FACS. Both parties would be able to hear it upon impact. Theoretically.
doctorremulac3, Jan 28 2020

       And how would it interact with the "IHA" protocol (see link). If you arrived somewhere and opened your car door and someone came up and greeted you, would your "IHA" music play, or the other person's "PTM" music? And what if, in the act of arriving and being greeted, you fatally crashed into another car?
hippo, Jan 28 2020

       Here's how it works:   

       You approach others: your song fades into their earbuds.   

       Others approach you: their song fades into your earbuds.   

       Both parties crash into each other: both parties have FACS played in their earbuds along with a pubic cervix massage about it being unsafe to drive with earbuds. Sorry, spellcheck issue. Public.

       //pubic cervix massage//
Whether a typo, auto-correct, or on purpose, I support this idea!
neutrinos_shadow, Jan 28 2020

       [+1] for the //pubic cervix massage//   

       Of course my theme song would have to be: Nurse from Derek & Clive.

       Can I update my choice? I'm going for the Pink Panther theme.

       Mancini’s masterpiece. A fine choice.
