Train whistle

I fell asleep to the sound of a train whistle about a mile off just about every night of my childhood. I love the sound...associate it with winding down.

Now I live a little closer to a train track, and the train whistle is a part of my late nights and early mornings again. But I'm not enjoying it as much. Why?

The pitch and duration of the whistle is almost exactly the same as the first note as the commercial jingle for Video Only. So I spend much of my late nights and early morning with that instrumental in my head, followed by the tagline of "You'll be sorry!"

I need to disassociate that sound from that commercial.
