The first time I heard this noise I thought my Sim was being robbed or that something awful had happened. Nothing ever happens though. I remember telling my husband about the noise. I described it as sad and beautiful. I, like the others, sort of think it has something to do with a Sim dying because after hearing that noise I read the news paper the next morning and, sure enough, someone died each time.
I've had sad music in my game a few times, and I'd read somewhere that it can happen if you have the pets game and an animal that doesn't belong to you dies. Just the other day there was a stray cat that died on my property and the same music played.
