Me and Julio, whistling, and a very strange sound

A little bit of music trivia for the Faucet tonight. What makes the high-pitched sounds at the end of Paul Simon’s “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard”?

A) a Squeegee scratched across a dry window

B) a monkey

C) a soprano that has had too much to drink

D) a small furry animal under duress

E) a cuica, which is a Brazilian friction drum used in carnivals and samba music

Skip down to find the correct answer.

The answer is E, though if you listen closely on repeat, I think an argument can be made for D.
