What is your favourite humming noise....???
16. Oct 2008 at 16:24
 
An Irish priest was once heard to ask this very question....
 
so - go on then...
 
feel free to go into detail into whatever humming noise is your favourite and explain why...also, if it comes from a particular mechanical object ( for example, a boiler ?...) then please state why you prefer that model's humming noise to it's predecessor or even its follow up...
 
Bear in mind that it has to be a humming noise - we dont tolerate drones, bleeps, buzzes, rattles or any other sounds here...
 
Just HUMS!!

You really are just trying to outpost S_P aren't you?!? Grin
 
If you don't allow BC hummms, I'm not playing.
 
 
EDIT:  OK I played.  I went with "mmnnnmmmnnnnmmmmnnnnnn"  as it sounded really close to ..........
 
 
....a BC drone.

I went for the one that builds in volume, simply cos I wanted a nice crescendo effect.

Went with "MMMMmmmmmm" as well. I like the attack at the beginning and then the natural, slow decline.

Nope I meant Scots_Pine.  He could never outpost YOU - for you are a cloakster with an autographed PT photo from Mr. RB himself!   He is a mere God.

The problem with this poll is that there is no 'I can't decide, they are all so good' option...  Grin

se there is also the fact that I have not actually voted myself yet...I have went purely on lyric inserts from CDs for the descriptions...
I'm waiting for them to come out on vinyl before I decide for myself.....

There are at least two popular music hums that should be included in the list:
 
(1) Crash Test Dummies- MMM MMM MMM MMM
(2) Major Lance - Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, Um

Seems that my dear friend Mr Fly has been a bit  Sad of late.  So what better way to cheer him up than to revive this old poll of his?  I never actually chose one before, but this time I've picked the third option - seems irresistible  Cheesy
