We've all heard songs that prominently feature guitar players, singers, bassists and drummers, but what about the foley artist?

Plenty of songs feature everyday sound effects - the pop of a soda can, clinking of beer bottles, dogs barking, glass breaking, gunshots, footsteps, creaking doors, rain, waves, etc.
