Songs That Have Caused You to Press the "Repeat" Button Over and Over Again

Some recent and not so recent ones:

Woman Like a Man - Damien Rice
Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand
Lover I Don’t Have to Love - Bright Eyes
The District Sleeps Alone Tonight - the Postal Service
B is for Brutus - the Hives

And that Simple and Clean song that **Stonebow **mentioned up thread is really catchy. Don’t be ashamed. :slight_smile:

The bad thing about liking a song so much that I endlessly put it on repeat is that I inevitably get tired of it, and no longer like it as much as I did when I first heard it. All of the above songs have suffered this disillusionment. I still like the songs, but that “this is such a great song!!” excitement is gone. In the case of songs that have been so overplayed, like Hey Ya - Outkast, will take years for me to like again.

That reminds me:

“Ten Storey Love Song” - The Stone Roses

Anni, nice list! Especially the Love and Phil Ochs songs. I wouldn’t put “Surf’s Up” on repeat, though. To me, when that one’s over, it’s done.

Suffragette City - David Bowie
Back in the USSR - Beatles
Stuck in the Middle With You - Steeler’s Wheel (otherwise known as “the Ear song” for obvious reasons :eek:
60 Miles an Hour - New Order
Walk Idiot Walk - The Hives
Country House - Blur

Rebel Heart, by the Corrs. This is truly one of the loveliest pieces of music I’ve ever heard and I don’t seem to tire of it at all.

Teo Torriate by Queen always gets played at least twice.

And, OK, I will admit it - when I’m cleaning house like a lunatic, I sometimes alternate between Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go and Love Shack for hours on end. Because, you know, then the duster becomes a microphone…

**First Time Ever I saw your Face ** by The Sterephonics

I love that song, Ive mentioned it in several threads on this message board…
Some more recent songs I’ve been hitting the repeat button for are **Sometimes You Cant Make It On Your Own ** by U2, **Dublin Sky ** by Darren Hayes, **Mr Brightside, Somebody Told Me, & Glamourous Indie Rock and Roll ** by The Killers.

And occasionally Damien Rices ** The Blowers Daughter**

Good, it isn’t just me.

“Baby, Can You Dig Your Man?” by Self

Isn’t this Larry’s song in The Stand? Did Stephen King take it from Self, or did Self take it from Stephen King?
