    The sound of my ex-girlfriend whenever we...

    yeah. that's about it, really, since most non-musical sounds annoy me.

    The sound of rain tattering on the ground and trees. The sound of my computers hard drive slowing down and stopping . The echo of a 380 caliber rifle. The Cracking sound bones make when someone gets punched. The sound of the soft crackle of the needle on my turntable when it drops on the record. The sound of Kittens meowing, although after thirty seconds of consistent meowing it gets annoying. The sound of rustling leaves when a gentle wind blows. The sound of thunder.

    MRI machines make the most hypnotic rhythmic sounds... Every time I get my head shoved into one for a 45-minute imaging session, I nearly fall asleep.

    There are others, but this was the first to come to mind.

    Gentle rain on my roof.
    The snip snip sound the shears make when I'm pruning bushes in the garden.
    Paint brush on canvas.
    If I'm at work or in a cafe or restaurant, the quiet murmur of people's voices.

    Me too (except my cat is not a kitten).

    Ditto, especially if it's really close.

    I won't list the other sounds I dislike, otherwise this will turn into a post of SolitaryWalker proportions.

    I love the sound of waves at the beach, thunder, wind in the trees, rain on the roof, my dogs quietly snoring as they sleep in front of the heater.

    Noises I don't like include annoying mobile phone ring tones, alarms, someone else's loud music, noisy cars.

    Crunchy snow under foot.
    Thunder, the more violent the better.
    'True' silence, as it is so rare. For me, anyway.

    Engines, whether internal or external combustion......

    .....and that strange noise overhead railway power cables (not the correct term) make when a train is approaching.

    Rain on my roof, The sound this one brand of Jello-that's-not-technically-Jello makes when you whack it in the package, whirrling of mechanical toys, popcorn popping are all great favorites of mine.
