It's a Sunday evening, and you are listening to some peaceful music. The piano keys express a peaceful melody, the violins sing a mournful accompaniment, and the harp gently caresses the notes of a lovely tune. You sit back in your chair and sigh as the music envelops your strained nerves and tensed emotions.
Then suddenly, coarse white noise and scratchy splashes.
A horrible, cantankerous squawking.
Crashing, harsh, noise that fills your ears.
You change the song, and any last trace of peace you felt has fled from the tainted song.
Who decided it was a good idea to put "soothing" nature sounds, like ocean waves and birds calls in recordings of instrumental music?
I will always profess that it is a very, very bad idea.
