    During a match, getting a 30 ball rally with plenty of POP and finishing off with the sound of hitting a backhand winner and having 4 strings break.

    The crack of your own serve. Gets me every time. Especially one that kicks.

    The snipping of hair. No more bangs and I get a "tasty" sound from the barber's scissors.

    Squishy noises from keyboards. Like from the really old IBM keyboards.

    Assorted, high volume cheering noise. I love atmosphere in anything I do/see; tennis, piano performances, orchestra concerts, football games.

    Last but not least, the super loud "pop" you hear off of a return. Makes me feel I made the best return in the history of tennis (in reality, far from it).

    The "get item" sound in Zelda-games.

    A woman moaning.

    That's pretty much it.

    The greatest sound I have ever heard is the bark of a dog/pup. It's a sound that gives me indescribably joy even at 2 am. Other related sounds are a dog's "arf" and "grrr".

    ^^ Let me also make myself perfectly clear here. ... the greatest smell in the world is puppy smell.

    Do you mean like "When are you going to do the gardening?" or, "Why do you have to get so drunk with your friends?" or something else?

    Coming up to 39 and married for over 14 years and that's the kind of woman moaning action I get sadly.

    haha ! you devil !
    and oh by the way, could you explain what a "nice" fart is, as opposed to a bad one :)
    Let me warn you, dog fart is awful, don't even try it, fart-lovers.

    No, its taken from the internet.

    The thwack of a perfectly struck forehand return

    This is a great song that I love, and it is very intelligent and poetic. The song uses the imagery of light and darkness to show how people's ignorance and apathy destroys their ability to communicate even on simple levels.

    Its theme is man's inability to communicate with man. The author sees the extent of communication as it is on only its most superficial and "commercial" level (of which the "neon sign" is representative). There is no serious understanding because there is no serious communication - "people talking without speaking - hearing without listening". No one dares take the risk of reaching out ("take my arms that I might reach you") to disturb the sound of silence. The poet's (character in the song) attempts are equally futile (" . . . but my words like silent raindrops fell within the wells of silence").

    The ending is an enigma. The words tell us that when meaningful communication fails, the only sound is silence.
