Cicada Singing!

Reading about the cicada, I wanted to see how they "sing", and what kinds of noises they make. 
So, onto YouTube we go!

Here's a cool little video of a cicada singing:

I see why Fabre would write, "from sun-rise to sunset, he tortures my head with the rasping of his harsh music. This deafening concert, this incessant rattling and drumming, makes all thought impossible." If I heard this sound all day, I don't think I'll be able to think either.
