  1. !!

    I’ve done this too many times. When other people sing my favorite songs, I have this urge to correct them when they make a mistake without realizing it.

    Frustrating. Also happens with favorite movies and TV shows.

  2. I do this all the time. i get a song i like and I play it until everyone around me begs me to stop.

    A related awesome thing for me is finding a copy of a long lost old favorite again. I recently found copies of dozens of old disc from my college era. I’ve been in nostalgia heaven for a month now.

  3. I have done this to songs to the point where I have listened to one over 500 times in three days.

    I’m not kidding.

    My friends are generally not pleased when this happens. =D

  4. I do this all the time on my iPod…especially when I’m working out. My latest has been either Waking Up In Vegas by Katy Perry or Heartless by the new American Idol, Kris.

  5. Lately I’ve been trying to back off on listening to the new, awesome songs I come across. I’ve killed so many of my favorite songs by listening to them again and again. Now I try to ration out the ‘coolness’ by keeping the listen-count low.

  6. As people have mentioned, its awesome when you do it for yourself. Less awesome when you’re a victim of it.

    I had a roommate in college who only owned 1 CD. It was Blink 182’s Enema of the State. He listened to the entire CD, on repeat, for an ENTIRE year. It was really ridiculous. Trust me that as far as torture goes, this is worse than waterboarding.

  7. Remember back in the days of cassette tapes, it was an art:…song ends…hit rewind… hit play again at the exact right second. Awesome!

  8. This is quite possibly my favorite thing on the list so far. I am guilty of doing this every day. I have a favorite song of the day or the hour or the week and I play it over and over until I get sick of it. I do the same thing with albums sometimes.

  9. Put in Pearl Jam’s Yield (MASSIVE PJ fan here!!) and alternated between ‘Given To Fly’ & ‘In Hiding’ (my current favorite song) for about 1/2 an hour!

    …did that with ‘The Real Me’ by The Who and DMB’s ‘Tripping Billies’ a few days ago, actually!

    man, I do this all the time!

  10. Meh, I’m not much a 1 song over and over type. I prefer to listen to a whole album repeatedly :D. Of course, by the end, I have whiplash, but it’s worth it.

  11. When I was a kid, I got 20 dollars a month for allowance, and every month I would buy a new CD. The moment when I got into the car and took last month’s CD out of my walkman, put on my headphones and let the new music flow was the highlight of the month! That CD would stay in the player until another 20 bucks came around, by which time every track was almost irritatingly etched into my brain…

    But on the way to the store on that special day, there was only one song to play. Knowing I was going to be transfixed by something new, and I probably wouldn’t be hearing my favorite track from this month’s CD for a long time, my parents were treated to a loud rendition of that one wonderful song — for the whole 30 minute ride to the store. And it was awesome!

  12. I loooove to do this! But.. I’m trying to learn when to stop before I get tired of it. :-/ It’s so hard to do.

    1. OMG i saw this one!!! wow ive been following it since the end of march i think… that video is what lead me to this site =D totally and completely and utterly

  13. I thought i was the only person who did this and upset all those around me. I remember putting the 12 inch version of she sells sanctuary on a 90 min tape and just playing it continously…. heaven !!!!!!!!!!!

    I thinks it is a form of meditation and those who can do it, get some real peace from it…..

    My current obsession is an oldie but a goodie.

    Collective Soul – Shine……….

  14. Yes, this is awesome. but it’s even more awesome when you own the tape that has it, and cannot find the song on google or anywhere else for that matter. “who invented music? I’d like to shake his hand, ’cause music put’s a spell on me that I can’t understand…..”

  15. today I listened to my new favorite song about 25 times, effectively spending about an hour and a half listening to that one song!

  16. I do this so many times, i have a new favourite song everyday. I have no idea why i have a 16gig ipod when i tend to only listen to one song per day on it. And when my mom heres the same song being repeated outloud, she has no idea how i can do that. Some people just can’t listen to the same song ovr and over.

  17. I like to listen to music. I need my music, every day! When I come home from a busy day on school, I put my Ipod in my stereo and I enjoy the music.
    Music helps while I’m studying, it makes me calm. Music gives me inspiration. My mood determines my choice of music. I love singing under the shower. I also love to wake up on weekends with the radio. In the summer I like going to music festivals. And before I forget, I’m used to listen to a new favorite song over and over again, until I’m tired of hearing it.


  18. I think it’s awesome to hear your new favorite song over and over again. When I’ve just downloaded a song which I really like, I listen to it over and over again. I like it to hit the back button again and again until my new song is permanently in my head. I can’t get enough of it. Sometimes a song is so awesome you can’t get tired of it.

  19. I have a new favorite.. Jill Barber’s Oh My My. I just love this song. Check out the video on YouTube.
