What are People Looking For in White Noise Recordings?

The white noise recording below has nearly 4 million views. But why is “Rain in the Woods Sleep Sounds” so much better than “Rain Showers” (55k views) or “Rain & Thunder Camping” (318k views)? All three recordings came out within a couple of months of one another and are from the same YouTube channel. Doesn’t “Spring Rain with Birds” sound nice? Yet it has only 417k views despite being released two years before “Rain in the Woods Sleep Sounds.”

More confusingly 7% of votes on “Rain in the Woods Sleep Sounds” are a thumbs down. Not a large percentage, but should it not be 0%? What are you expecting to hear when you click on “Rain in the Woods Sleep Sounds”? Give it a listen. I promise that you will think it sounds exactly like rain in the woods. Thumbs up from me.
