What are examples of pleasant and unpleasant sounds?

Question:please give me at least five for each..thanks

Fingernails on the black board

A cat hucking up a hairball at 2 in the morning.

A rattling sound from your engine on a lonely stretch of road

The omnious click of a firearm being primed

The distant sound of a cars screeching, then, the crash

(I chose all unpleasant sounds, as there would be little argument about them)
There's an old saying - beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It means that what is beautiful to one person may not be so to another. And so it is with sounds. Some sounds are very annoying to some people, but are music to the ears of others.
And of course, if you are tone deaf, or stone deaf, that puts a whole new slant on the question.
pleasant: laughing, birds chirping, waves crashing on the beach, wind in the trees, kisses,

unpleasant: burping, throwing up, anything bathroom related, gunshot, rain (sometimes), screaming
Singing is pleasant, screaming is unpleasant.
To clear the throat is pleasant, to belch is unpleasant.
The purr of an engine is pleasant, the honk of a horn is unpleasant.
The padding of baby feet is pleasant, stomping of feet is unpleasant.
Gentle bubbling on the stove is pleasant, the whistle of a tea kettle is unpleasant.
Pleasant ones - some of them;
1- the sound of the peaceful breathing of the one you love sleeping beside you
2-ocean waves breaking into surf
3- the sound of rain when you are warm and cozy inside
4- the sound of laughter of the children, when babies squel in delight
5-the sound of your heart beating when you are crossing the finish line
6- the crackling sound of a bonfire when you are gathered around it with loved ones
7- beautiful music- too many to write here

Unpleasant ones;
1- Any bathroom related sounds
2-the siren of the emergency vehicles
3- someone yelling at me, I despise that person and rarely forgive if it is repeated
4-persistent knocks on the door, someone knocking with a sense of entitlement
5- the chalk/nails screeching on the blackboard

Hope this helps.

It's very subjective. For example: a screaming ambulance would be pleasant if you are the one who needs emergency medical help. But if you are in heavy traffic and have to pull over or stop that would be unpleasant.
