Default unintended sounds in popular recordings

This seems like a good place to ask. When I hear Since I've Been Loving You by Zeppelin I can't help but wonder what that intermittent squeaking noise is throughout the song. If you know the song surely you know what I'm referring to...what is that??

My guess is a squeaky reel or other circular device in rotation.

I know some others, care to guess what they are?

I guess it might depend how you look at it. It could be telling of how resolving your system is and how close of a listener you are.

The chirp in the Zeppelin track go much further into the track becoming layered in with the music and harder to decipher. Further in than I had realized since hearing it through time.

Some foreign nuances aren't quite so easy to detect in other songs.

On Sun Ra's "Cosmic Tones for Mental Therapy", a phone rings at about halfway through the composition "Adventure-Equation". It's somewhat buried in the mix, but distinct if you're listening for it. Of course, since the Arkestra is in full cry at that point, no one answers it.

Tho not quite as popular as LZ, Glenn Gould is probably the biggest selling classical pianist.

His noisy piano and his rickety old wooden chair make all kinds of racket, on most of his recordings. He would not allow the piano action to be repaired, and he would not use the piano bench. And then he hummed loudly along with his playing. Critics have always complained, but it's just part of his art. Grows on your after a few decades.

There is a Bob Marley recording where a truck must be maneuvering near the studio, comes through as some deep bass. I will try and remember to get the title next time.

Thelonious Monk tended to mumble along as he played. Roland Kirk would vocalize whilst fluting, he sometimes managed it whilst playing three saxes simultaneously

Jackson Browne: Nothing But Time. Recorded on their tour bus while en route, you can hear the engine a number of times.
