There's a lovely Jazz Butcher song called "Rosemary Davis' World of Sound" on his album 'Waiting for the Love Bus', a tribute to the BBC's sound effects library:

Dawn in a suburban garden.
Troop of horses passing.
Milk float runs and stops.
House to house delivery.
Church bell tolling.
Alsatian barking.
Human heartbeat.
Start, tick over, depart.
Gas escaping.
Men running on country road.
Domestic fire burning.

Once the commonplace sounds of everyday life, now exotica. (I believe Rosemary Davis was the compiler of the BBC Sound Effects library.)
