There's a school across the street from my house and right now kids are laughing on the playground. Cheering and chatter and play are generally nice sounds. Good music to write to.
Until recently, when whoever runs recess decided to add a hideous soundtrack of bad 80's songs to playtime. Little kids monkey on monkey bars to "Walk Like an Egyptian," Thriller" and "Come on Eileen." They play tag to the beat of C & C Music Factory's "Everybody Dance Now" and Madonna's "Get Into the Groove."
I shut the windows and insert earplugs.
Commiserate with me. Or brag if you want to. What sounds do you hear around your home?
