Broken Music by humon Broken Music by humon
A few days ago I was minding my own business watching TV here in England, when an ice cream van drove by.

English ice cream vans sounds nothing like the Danish ones, and it is quite possibly the most horrifying sound I have ever heard. In Denmark it's just a bell going DING DING DING. Here it's the sound of broken children's music, like and old scratched record that has been slowed down a bit. :fear:

In Sweden everyone sings "Vi lurar små barn, vi lurar små barn. På deras sexårs dag" :3
in the philippines there are 2 well known brands: Magnolia and Selecta
People made a spoof for their ice cream tune:
"Ang Selecta at Magnolia ay parehas ang tunog kaya walang bumibili"
Translation: Selecta and magnolia have the same sound so nobody buys :)

XD D'aaw that's so cool! We have many versions like: Vi knullar små barn vi knullar små barn på deras sex års dag. Which means: We fuck small kids we fuck small kids on their six years day. And we have: Vi lurar små barn vi lurar små barn på deras veckopeng. Which means: We fool small kids we fool small kids on their week money. Idfk what it's called in English
hahahahahahaha! the masses have their quirks :)

XD Yep!
The Entertainer interspersed with random hellos has gotten creepier as I've gotten older.

Oh my! This happens to me in general whenever the ice cream truck drives by.

It's a sound that kind of terrifies me every year. It usually plays Christmas music of Fur Elise or something like that... but it switches between songs so fast, it's just... *shudders* I can't really explain it better than it sounds like someone tried to make a mix of songs that don't go together but ended up blending the songs into a tune that makes little sense and hurts enough to possibly wake the dead if only so they can groan in protest of the awful noise.

Nice job with this. :clap:
