Wind Chime Hell

I live about half a mile from the beach where we get a pretty constant coastal breeze in the afternoons. Many people in the neighborhood feel compelled to hang a collection of aluminum pipes outside their front door. When I open my window at night, all I hear is a cacophony of random ding-a-ling-a-dinga-dings. New neighbors moved into our apartment complex and- guess what? They have aluminum wind chimes! What is going on? I'm no music afficonado with perfect pitch. In fact, I have trouble singing on key, but the chimes are driving me batty. Am I the only one who hates these things and fantasizes about cutting them down?
