Yes it is and I've been doing this since Mint 17.2, all you need is Audacity and any music file of your choice.

Open Audacity and drag in your music file eg mp3, create about a 7 second file and save it to the Desktop as .ogg. I then cut and paste my .ogg file to the Home Folder, go to Sound...Sounds...Starting Cinnamon...click first box, this takes you to the Home Folder, select the .ogg music file and click...Open and you're done...it's that easy. :)

This is what it looks like when done...I have Star Wars. :D

While I can see women finding Jones' voice sexy and Ross' voice soothing, I can imagine them getting turned off by Kinison's voice because he's so loud and shrilling. Now if you're dealing with a woman who you don't want to be around, then whip out Kinison and she'll get annoyed and leave.

I can also see a scenario where you play one sound that's a recording of Cloris Leachman saying "I'm Frau Blücher! *horses neigh and thunder rumbles*"
