I think everyone's heard of "Comfort Food". But what's your "Comfort Sound"?

It's raining in Sydney at the moment ... after FAR too many days of temperatures above 38C (the old Fahrenheit century) ... and it's blessed soothing.

Out the back of our house, the sunroom (an old enclosed rear verandah) has a tin roof, and there's just something about rain on a tin roof that soothes one to sleep at night like a lullaby.

Well, enough of that. But what's YOUR "comfort sound"?

Hard to beat rain on a tin roof when you are snuggled in bed, but waves on the sea shore come a close second.

rain is probably my most favourite too. especially really heavy rain, when I'm just waking up and am not in any hurry to get up.

and relatedly: the sound of someone else cooking breakfast. that's wonderful.

Those are all awesome sounds and are defiantly at the top of my list.

I love the sound of the wind and I like hearing my parents talking in the other room.

The sound of a box fan!! :9:
But also rain and rumbles of thunder. :)

All these plus the sound of a distant train traveling in the middle of the night -- even the warning horn blast has a pleasantness to it.

Also: animal sounds. Purring cat, mooing cow, melodic birdsong, and crickets.

I love the sound of rain, waves lapping on the sea shore and the wind. Sometimes, if it's too quiet at night, the sound of
a fan on or an airconditioner going can be relaxing as well.

The wind blowing through the pine trees is a comfort sound for me. Also the spring peeper frogs singing at night is a sound that has SO many good memories associated with it that it is high on my list as well.

The even drone of the engine of an airplane I'm flying.

Song birds as you wake up from a comfy sleep. Rain is a close second.

I actually wrote an entry in my blog the other that touches on this as part of a larger discussion.

I read your blog post and have to say, I know what you mean about the music in the Mexican restaurant being "off". I went to a Japanese eatery a few years ago. I had to tell the new owners, once I figured out who they were and say that they should really consider changing the music from heavy metal to something more in keeping with the type of food being offered.

Yes the grandeur of a green, lush mountain area is a very special kind of comfy background, umm set of sounds?

Two versions actually, both of which I've (forcibly) enjoyed while stuck in traffic on the H-3 Interstate (think about that for a second). The gentle white noise of the tradewinds rushing up through the greenery and the not-so-gentle white noise of dozens of waterfalls rushing down.

Looks like this (the raised roadway is the H-3).

Sorry for late reply. Breathtaking scenery, and it would certainly be an uplifting background noise.
