Usually a worn or frayed drive belt. Inspect all belts and replace any you find that are worn, cracked, or frayed.

Crickets do not actually sing, but they are said to do so because they make a chirping sound that is similar to the sound of singing. The crickets rub there legs together, creating the mentioned chirping sound.

This sounds like vacuum leak in the braking system. Check for disconnected or cracked hose from the engine to the brake booster in the engine compartment.

The chirping is probably the Speedometer cable. Unless it a manual tranny, than it could be a throw out bearing. If the chirping get faster with your speed it's the speedo cable.

Yes, they can make a chirping sound. It is usually associated with distress/stress. If something has upset them you will hear a chirping sound. It's rarely associated with a "happy event".
