A gentle hum

The Dominion Post is reporting a persistent hum across the neighbourhood, for which inventive and interesting explanations have been proposed. (Our favourite: Mt Victoria is humming because no-one has taught it the words.)

Perhaps we should teach the words …. so we consulted a few songwriters to see what the explanation could be. Neil Finn had the view:

This gentle hum
Is just begun
This gentle hum
Make us one

Planet engines pulsate in sideral time
If you listen close you can hear the whine

Other explanations and sightings (hearings?) of strange humming occurrences welcomed in the comments.
