How do sounds make you feel?

Stressful sounds

  • Micheal Savage's voice
  • children / babies shrieking in pain
  • any shrieking sounds
  • certain intense repetitive noise sounds
  • dentist drill
  • sawtooth waves

Soothing sounds

  • woman singing lullaby
  • soft regular breathing of sleep
  • cat purring
  • ocean waves
  • just intoned sine waves?

What would you put on these lists?
