Notable squeaky songs would be Wish You Were Here, and Every Breath You Take. Lots more, but those are two of my favorites.
Related : hearing a cellist's fingertips tapping the fingerboard when playing. Sexy.

I haven't checked this particular link, but I remember this being quite noticeable in Pieter Wispelwey's second recording of the Bach Cello Suites
Mais je porte accroché au plus haut des entrailles
À la place où la foudre a frappé trop souvent
Un cœur où chaque mot a laissé son entaille
Et d’où ma vie s’égoutte au moindre mouvement
