       Could this be jury rigged using Pandora and some bit of Java that controls your volume?

       Gets my vote if it could be random bird- song.

       No, no. Has to be Girl From Ipanema played on the vibes.

       Actually what would be perfect is the random, gibberish whistling that you always seem to hear as someone brushes up litter in an empty railway station late at night.

       This should be fairly easy to bake as a Firefox plugin.   

       tall and tan and lovely the girl from Impanema goes walking...
