Postby dark water; Thu Aug 09, 2018 12:26 pm What are your 3 favourite sounds ever? (AKA another high quality thread idea...)

Greetings,

I know that you fine people love Top 3 List threads here on KVR (which you then disobey and post about 11 answers for :x :x ).


So, what 3 sounds in life make you most happy?


They can be anything: cuckoos twittering, trance sirens in Dutch warehouses, pebbles plopping into streams, Aston 'Family Man' Barrett's famous 1970's bass sound, you farting onto bed springs to 'test out the resonance'...


Mine would be:

1) Young children laughing.
(there is something particularly wonderful about the sound of unselfconscious joy found in people not yet teenagers).

2) A hotel bell which gives a reassuring 'ping'.

3) ''The traditional sounds of an English summer, the drone of lawnmowers, the smack of leather on willow..'' (to quote a famous Orb song).



Hence, what three sonic beauties do you know of and love?

Cheers,
DW

1) whole heartedly agree, kids playing and laughing. most especially kids who haven't yet managed language as we as adults know it, but still have conversations that they seem to both understand and laugh at the same point, its like toddlers have their own secret language :hihi:

2) general animal noise, so long as its not an animal in distress, dog chained in a garden kind of thing. but i love hearing say one dog bark once, then you hear it get passed around by other dogs in earshot.
cats when they push at your ankles for strokes and make that loud mew, you cant resist bending down to nuzzle behind their ears.
the local birds out back, i have a small part of the mersey forest behind my house so we get a nice selection of birds, from crows with their almost aggressive caw! to various songbirds twittering and doves cooing. not to mention an owl i hear later on :)

3) a reet good thunderstorm!

The sounds of the forest;
The sound of the ocean;
The sounds of silence.

1) Young children shouting.

2) Loud farting.

3) The screech of chalk on a blackboard.

No particular order

Kids playing happily.

Someone singing from their soul.

A voice with integrity and conviction and the best interest of all mankind at heart.

The sound of sports being played some distance away on a warm summer's evening.

Water lapping against the side of a wooden boat.

Distant thunder echoing across the sky.

The reggae coming from downstairs at 3am

The scrutter couple from down the road arguing in the car park at 4am ("Where's me f**king phone Niall? You're in big f**king trouble now" etc etc)

Washburn kc-20v super(cough)strat through 3 watt Marshall amp when leathered.

1)The sound of my voice when I announce over the DJ mic "ladies and gentlemen, this next song WILL be the last song of the evening!!" I think 26 yrs of being a professional Wedding DJ is finally taking its toll! Lol

2) The silence and the gentle hum of my car whilst driving home after a gig

3) water rushing gently in a brook.
