Macca soundtracks your Skype chats.

Skype’s animated emoji are already the best in the business, but the Microsoft-owned company wants to make them even better, recruiting Sir Paul McCartney to record music for a new set to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

The new “Love Mojis” include Sumo Cupid, Flirting Banana and Excited Octopus, each of which are accompanied by a guitar riff or synth jingle from the mind of McCartney to get us in the mood for the annual holiday of love.

It’s not the first time Microsoft has paid a big name to record jingles for its software – the classic Windows 95 start-up sound was famously composed by Brian Eno.
