Repeating songs

Do you ever get into one song so much that you just put it on repeat and let it play for hours? I'm not talking about the first new song released from a long awaited album and you play it over and over because it's the only new thing out there from that band. What I'm thinking of is when you have a whole album and you fixate on one song.

If you have done this, fess up, which song/songs?

Fairly recent repeaters for me have been:

Steve Kilbey -- Blessed One
The Church -- Invisible
Art of Fighting -- Something New
Wilco -- Jesus, etc.
Wilco -- Via Chicago
Gersey -- The Night We Walked to Mexico (I listened to the Storms Dressed As Stars cd for about 30 hours straight -- even overnight -- when I first got it)

And I'm not even sick of any of those songs yet. I think that might be the greatest feat.

"New Year's Day"

Yup, not sick of it, funny thing is, it's probably the one U2 song I've heard the most, I mean, shouldn't I be sick of it yet?

I was a casual U2 fan up until 2000, so technically I've onlyknown it as a U2 song for 5 years.

"Take on Me" A-ha. Don't laugh, I like it aight!

Beck - Nicotine & Gravy
U2 - Love and Peace or Else
Snow Patrol - Run
Ted Leo and the Pharmacists - Six Months in a Leaky Boat (Split Enz cover)
Beck - Missing
Air - Cherry Blossom Girl
Air - Playground Love
Bright Eyes - Let's Not Shit Ourselves

I think I tend to listen to certain songs on repeat for a long time because I really enjoy the atmosphere or the feeling it gives me. For example, I really enjoy listening to Snow Patrol - Run when I'm working on webdesign-related stuff, because it's very calming, unobtrusive but very enjoyable.

yes...... this is the way I listen to music.. This is the way I am.

I am a man of EXTREMEs...either I want everthing or I want nothing.. If i say yes it means YES and if I say means NO...

no comprises or negotiations...

coming to the list

1) Down by Blink 182...atleast 1000 times in a month recently
( 5 hours a day in repeat mode for many days) in 2005

2) Champagne Supernova by Oasis - 500 times in a month in 2002

3) Dont look back by Oasis - 1000 times during a month in 2001

4) Prodigal by Porcupine tree - 500 times during a month in 2004

5) Streets by U2 - 1000 times during a month in 2001

6) Let down by radiohead - 2000 times in 2002/2003

all figures are approximate figure which I think I had listened to...a conservative estimate...I think...I didnt count it but guessed based on howmany hours I spent listening to it..and the duration of the song...

Been there, done that! Also with "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart."

For awhile recently it was Manic Street Preachers "If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next" but I've cooled it a bit.

When I first discovered the "repeat 1" feature I was about ten years old and decided I wanted to listen to "Here Comes the Sun" forty times in a row. Now recently it's been "Love Untold" and "First Glimmer" by Paul Westerberg but about a year ago it was "Plainsong" by the Cure.

Most of the time I can't listen to the same song twice in a half hour span. Just not my cup of tea.

Not to slag off anyone who does.
