OK we have a thread for smells... so

How about sounds? What is it you Loooove the sound of?

I LOVE the sound of:

very heavy summer rain and thunder (I love the feeling too)
running water, like a stream bubbling over pebbles
tenor and bass singing together
the accoustics in a church
waking up to little birds singing on a spring morning
wind in the trees
the haunting refrain of a lone flute

Rain for me as well!.

A saxophone especially when it's in the hands of Kenny Gee

A cat purring

The last night of the proms when they start singing Land of Hope and Glory, it always makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end!

Me too Susan
I also like the sound of a working air conditioner on a hot and humid south GA summer day
The little meow that Eponine makes to announce that she's about to jump up on the bed and cuddle with me
The guitar in any Carlos Santana song
The "doink doink" noise at the start of any episode of Law and Order (...or L&O SVU... or CI)
And finally.... the "sound" of a comfortable silence with the one you love

Ditto for birds on a spring morning Emma, it's the first thing I thought of!
Also -
Jasper's purr as he sleeps next to me
"Jan-Jan!" as yelled by my great-nieces and nephews when they see me
A theater organ in the hands of a trained musician

Sound of a working air conditoner/furnace (esp. after what mom and I went through in December and January )
Add to that the sound of a working toilet, computer, and van!

I love the sound of the tanks fireing at the local range. I can hear the vibrations here in the house. Its comforting in an odd way.

The beach!!! Oh goodness the beach is such a big one for me. In fact I love everything about the beach, the sounds, the smell, the feel, the stickiness, oh my......I'm feeling beach deprived now!! Hopefully it will be warm enough over Spring Break in a couple of weeks.

I'm also a big fan of birds chirping. Especially in the spring (my fave season).

Also a fan of rain as I'm falling asleep. The harder the better (though not with thunder to match, when thunder is too loud I practically jump right out of bed)!

The natural sounds of my parents house. It makes me feel so cozy.

Any kind of running water.

Sounds...

My kid laughing so hard she cannot catch her breath.

Snickers singing to himself at night downstairs, before he finishes up and comes up to lay on my legs to keep me warm.

Thunderstorms... the sounds all around just before the storms roll in.

Piano being played, no matter what song it is! I walked in on my boss's son playing "My Heart Will Go On" on their piano last week, it was beautiful.

In the Spring & Summer when the sun is coming up... the sound of birds singing in the trees.

Vin Diesel's voice. Oh if only he lived near Cincinnati, was single, and interested in short, scrawny redheads.

Rain on a tent or camper
Crackling of a fire
Two things coming from the loudspeakers at the range at Camp Perry:
1. The scratching and muted version of the National Anthem that they play every morning.
2. "This is the first stage of Match 104, the President's Match, 10 rounds fired in 10 minutes from the standing position." It means the National Matches are really starting.

Oh, does that one resonate! (I think it was the first indicator -- years before either of us had any inkling of where we'd be today -- that it was a match.)

I'll think about the rest and be back

Jerrys snoring......(I know, I'm weird)
The ocean waves.....
Wind whipping through the trees

I love it how we English all love the rain But then we get plenty of practice listening to it don't we!!!

I love to hear the rain thrashing against the window.
I love the waves crashing on the shore - or falling gently on the sand
Choral music is just incredible
I love to hear my daughter laughing upstairs when she hears something funny
My kitties purring gives me a warm glow inside
I love sitting in the garden and listening to the birds chattering about their business

I love thunder storms! Hurricanes are pretty aweome, too.
Crickets chirping
Frogs at night, a summer sound.
A well-built motor,idling at a redlight.
A Mercury 90hp outboard motor- I used to have to hook my boat motor up to the hose to flush the saltwater out of it, it would be located between these 2 buildings that created a wonderful acoustic effect, & I would rev the motor just to hear it..
An OLD Kawasaki 900- I swear I could still recognize that sound from down the street.
