I have no idea if she already had the habit, but as soon as we had KRYKKYT, she immediately responded to my tongue clicks with her own, and she responds exactly the same to my gf's "kissy" sound -- I don't think she differentiates between the two.
As far as music, it's the same as with the clicking -- either a click or a tune from us or on TV means it's IMMEDIATELY time for a dance. Head bobbing up and down is simple happy-dance, while side-to-side swaying is less common and seems to reflect more of a slow-dancing mood.
Oh -- the other thing she's been responding to is the budgies' voices. Unfortunately, the higher she tries to squawk in imitation of their singing, the more she sounds like a cat being put through a meat-grinder! We thought she was dying for awhile there, as every day her calls got a little higher and more pathetic, until we finally recognized her attempt at "trilling" and the way she would stare at the keets and listen for their responses.
