Have you ever gone through a stretch of time where you only want to listen to one specific song?

Asked by ANef_is_Enuf (26789points) January 7th, 2012

It isn’t unusual for me to go through phases where I only listen to a certain band, or even a certain album. I listened to a song yesterday morning, and it is the only song I’ve listened to for the last 24 hours. For some reason, it is the only thing that sounds good to me right now.

Even if it wasn’t the only song you’ve listened to, are there certain days where you can listen to the same song on repeat and never get bored with it? Does that change, often, or is there a specific song that always gets you?

Yes, I’ll get taken with a song and play it over and over again.

@marinelife – Me, too. Sometimes, a certain song will just hit me, and I’ll repeat that same song again and again until I’m sick of it and never want to hear it again :-p

Not 24 hrs on end, but there are a few songs that I can play a dozen times continuously.
Most of them are played when I feel moody.
One of them.

I can’t do that more than a couple times in a row for one song, but I can listen to albums over and over.

Back a long time ago when you could move the stack arm on a turntable to play a record over and over again, I had a girl in my room and put on the first side of Fleetwood Mac, (the one with Rhiannon on it). We both fell asleep, it played for hours.

Yes – I have a song that will fit my mood for a while and want to hear it or sing it over and over again.

Right now, I keep singing a refrain from a Priscilla Herdman folk song:

“Well, our good times are all gone,
but at least there’s rain,
This won’t be barren ground
when September rolls around.”

Hahahahhaahahhahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahhahaha funny you ask. Yesterday, I listened to Hall and Oates “Kiss on my List” pprrrrroooobably 70 times. I whistled it for 5 hours at work, then at the store, on my bike, and then listened to it on repeat essentially for 4 hours when I got home, and then I sang it at karaoke to top it off. I think maybe I got it out of my system except….I woke up this morning after 5 hours of sleep and couldn’t think about anything but listening to it so I did….hahaha

@rebbel Thank you. I had never heard that song, and it was beautiful.

rebbel's avatar

@marinelife You are most welcome, I am happy that you discovered it, and enjoyed it!

Yes. I always have a song in my head. If not a song, sometimes a voice or a sound. I was once told that I need to write down all the songs and sounds in my head so my therapist could see if there was a deeper meaning. But the songs changed so much that I couldn’t keep up.
I will always listen to this song on repeat though.

Guilty as charged: the loop button is quite often my friend. It makes my account look ridiculous when I use programs that scrobble.

I’ve never had a period of time where I just listened to one song over and over again, but I’ve gotten songs stuck in my head and listened to them several times in one day before. It doesn’t happen often, but it tends to happen in groups. That is, I’ll have several days in a row where I get a new song stuck in my head each morning and then go months without it happening. When it’s going on, I have tendency to link to those songs on Fluther.

My mother-in-law, however, can get caught up in songs for months—or even years. There is an infamous story I get told every once in a while about her making a cassette tape that played the same song over and over again. She would play it every time she drove anywhere until it got thrown out of the window and into oncoming traffic.

@SavoirFaire who threw it? lol.

SavoirFaire's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf My father-in-law. We’re still not sure how he survived.

AnonymousWoman's avatar

Yes. If I feel like I really connect with a song on some level, that can happen quite easily.

@rebbel I. love. Earth wind and fire. Aggggggghhh. I could probably listen to Shining Star for hours on end and dance like Elaine from Seinfeld.

Earthgirl's avatar

For some reason I can play this song over and over and never get sick of it. It was the B side of Pick Up the Pieces by AWB
There are a few other songs I can play over and over but not many.
Sometimes I wake up with a song running through my head and I cannot rest until I hear it. But even then, once I hear it once or twice, I am satisfied.
deni Did you just fall in love or what!?

AshlynM's avatar

Yes, I’ve done that plenty of times. Right now I’m hooked on California Love.

deni's avatar

@Earthgirl Haha well I guess kinda, but I think regardless of when I was introduced to that specific song I woulda listened to it on repeat 4000000000000000000000x.

Linda_Owl's avatar

@rebbel , I agree, that particular Earth, Wind, & Fire song is one of their best.
