For several weeks I played Neil Young's "Cowgirl in the Sand" on repeat. (I'm sure my neighbours loved it.) I still can't listen to it without pressing Repeat at least once.

Also I have a scratchy tape of Joni Mitchell singing "You Turn Me On (I'm a Radio)" that I will rewind again and again, and have done so since I originally got the tape seven or eight years ago. (It's a live version that I can't find on CD).

Of course, there are always hit songs that people really dig when they're popular (like that fucking Lisa Loeb song my roommate played constantly for a week, and then forgot about). I'm really wondering about the old songs that keep making you reach for the Repeat button, years after everyone else has stopped listening.

I think we should include songs that are on "Repeat" with nary a CD player in sight.
In other words, songs that go beyond "stuck in your head for a day or so" -- you've sung them to yourself on and off for years!


There's a great stairwell at my work, great acoustics, never anyone in it. It often gets filled up with me singing "Marakesh Express". Has since '96.

At full volume. In various styles -- one day Sinatra doing swing, next day Joanis doing the blues. And imagine Pavarotti: Cleeeeeeear Morrooooccan Skiii-i-iiies...

"Joanis" is somehow related to Janis (Joplin)...


sorry.




Hmm. And "Marakesh Express" is tangentially related to "Cowgirl in the Sand"...

This Ruined Puzzle by Dashboard Confessional is on heavy rotation for me right now as is My Immortal by Evanescence from the Daredevil soundtrack. Yes.. I am in a melancholy mood and wallowing in it with songs like these.

About anything by Dire Straits with a good instrumental. While writing my thesis I kept the CD player stuck on Skateaway, Where do you think you’re going? And On every street. I switched to writing in the evenings after a few less-than-subtle death threats by the other grad students that shared the office.

Hotel California and Ring of Fire, listening to their sweet sounds remind me of a better time. Sometimes I think I spend more money on the jukebox than on beer.

Clocks by Coldplay and Trouble by Lindsey Buckingham. The first choice is obvious--fairly new, VERY catchy tune, but the second one I have no good explanation for.

Songs I have listened to over and over:

"Sweet Thing," Van Morrison
"Mother," Tori Amos
"Wish You Were Here," Pink Floyd (when I need to cry)
"Over the Hills and Far Away," Led Zeppelin
"What I Am," Eminem

"The End of the Innocence", "Sky High" by Jigsaw (Art Bell used to play it as bumper music), "Losing My Religion" and "Walk Away Rene." But only when I'm alone. I play them over and over and over and well, you know.

I tend to not like repeating songs over and over etc., but I've got one that I consistently do this to : REM's cover of "Wall of Death" . Works especially well considering the theme of the song, and that it begins, "Let me ride on the Wall of Death one more time ..."

I tend to do this with a new song every now and then...

The three songs for this week are

1)In My Place by Coldplay
2)Crawling (Reanimation mix) by Linkin Park
3)Live from Heart by Sa Trincha

I can't believe that's butter!

I listened to "Morning Train (9 to 5)" by Sheena Easton 20 times in a row once. I was (and still am, a bit) intrigued by the drum track, along with the keen vocal delivery by Ms. Easton and the background singers.

Sam Stone..by John Prine.

Sam Stone came home,
To the wife and family
After serving in the conflict overseas.
And the time that he served,
Had shattered all his nerves,
And left a little shrapnel in his knees.
But the morhpine eased the pain,
And the grass grew round his brain,
And gave him all the confidence he lacked,
With a purple heart and a monkey on his back.

Particularly relevant today I think.

I once made up a whole compilation CD of things that I frequently got stuck in my head.

Unfortunately, it appears to be at work. :(

In particular, "House of Stone and Light" by Martin Page, "Moonlight Shadow" by Mike Oldfield, and TMBG's "Ana Ng" were all on there, as well as a cover of "Voices Carry" by a local a cappella group. And now that I've thought about the compilation, the other twelve will all come 'round to haunt me over the next 24 hours . . .

I tend to cycle my repeats, ad I listen to entire CDs, rather than specific songs. One week, it's the Evita soundtrack, the next, one of my Minstrels of Mayhem CDs. This week, I've been listening to Leo Kottke, and last week it was Diana Krall.

I think the last single song I did this with was Somos la Semilla by Ricky Martin because I was trying to memorize the words in Spanish.

I listened to Platinum Blonde's Standing In The Dark at least once a day for about 12 years.

More recently, Jeff Healy's See The Light and Derek and the Dominoes' Layla have received heavy play.

There are lots of songs I play over again, but most of them I really, really like and play often anyway. However, once a year or so, I break out "Rapper's Delight" and play it like 10 times in a row.

Omorka, for the past few months "Ana Ng" has been in my head a lot. But I dont have it, so I cant play it :(

I can't listen to songs over and over and over. After a while they start to drive me crazy. At some point, even the songs I love, I don't want to hear more than just every once in a while. Songs I didn't really like all that much in the first place become extremely aggravating after repeated listenings and end up getting pitted (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?threadid=173761).

Abandoned Pools- The Remedy I'm listening to it for probably the 5th time today.

James- Laid I usually listen to this at least 5 times per week

Better Than Ezra- In the Blood Greatest song ever written, and rarely a day goes by that I don't listen to a version of it.

Strange Funny Way I can listen to this over & over with no problems, as with

Live Again which I usually hear a few times per week.

Right now I have Ends by Everlast in my head. I've been listening to it for like two weeks. I can't get the lyrics out of my head. Highly haunting stuff.

Hands down, the song I listen to over and over and over and over and over and over for decades now has been Starship Trooper by Yes. Live, studio, whatever. I can't get enough of that song.

Other recent obsessions include All The Small Things by Blink 182, and and Smooth Criminal by Alien Ant Farm. ( yes, it sounds EXACTLY like Michael Jackson during his "Thriller" years. So? And? :) ).

Come to think of it, I did a fairly heavy period with Youth Of The Nation by P.O.D. as well. Something about truly well crafted hip-hop/rap lyrics that get me, I guess.

Then again, I burned out my 45 of Call Me by Blondie...................... heh

Spoz told me to post this on his behalf, as he's gone to bed now:

SPOZ's Playlist (http://www.subwoofer.32k.org/playlist.html)

That's his Winamp-generated playlist of his 300 favorite songs; the list changes all the time. Knowing him, the list has Aphex Twin / Beastie Boys / Radiohead / the Prodigy / etc. on it.

I'll think of stuff I like listening to over and over again, and get back to this thread later. :)

"The Scientist", "Politik", "Clocks" and "A Rush of Blood to the Head" by Coldplay.

The first four tracks off The White Stripes' Elephant.

And, inexplicably...

"Love Bites" by Def Leppard

I also listened to Radiohead's "Fake Plastic Trees" every day of my sophomore year in college.

I'm with mungo on being afraid to listen to songs over and over, because then they become everyday-ish. I do, however, save my favorites for when I'm psyched to hear them. I really like the way most of them begin, although some develop and that's why I like them. They include Stones' Carol, Gimme Shelter, Jeff Beck's Goin' Down, Who's Fooled Again, any of the songs on Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac very first album (love those dust my broom blues), and Steve Miller's Jetairliner (long version), Red House, and some others. But these are my main squeezes. Probably left a few vital ones out, like Red-neck Friend (JB) and The Call Me the Breeze (LS)...

Pretty much anything by Hank Jr. - his songs have such a catchy tune and lyrics. Even my friends who are anti-country get his songs stuck in their head. I have a Hank Jr. CD that never leaves my car CD player.

Also, I constantly listen to anything by Dwight Yoakam. But my "song of the week" that I can't stop listening to is "Dune Buggy" by Presidents of the USA

Almost any new song I love I play to death.

But there are a few that I have been listening to for upwards of 30 years and still never tire of. A couple that pop into my mind at the moment are both Marvin Gaye tunes: Mercy Mercy Me and "What's Goin' On."

The Pixies' "The Sad Punk" still thrills and awes me after approximately 1,472,409 listenings.

Also I got the new White Stripes album, Elephant, today, and I can definitely see the song "Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine" entering my personal Hall of Fame.
