    Maybe this is common, maybe not:

    I am a fan of Dave Matthews Band, but haven't cared for "Everyday." Until now. All of a sudden, I landed on the track "Angel," and I've had it on repeat, all day at work. I must've listened to it about 50 times this weekend while traveling. Carter lays down this simple shuffle that really swings, then he gets real fat and meaty right in the chorus and especially at the end. Stephan just totally lays out and lets a mellow little bass line sing and provide space for Dave's guitar to breath and get funky. The melody is great, but simple, (maybe Bach knew what was up with simple melodies :) ), but it's infectious.

    Usually my only "big time repeat" songs are Ray Charles' version of "That Lucky Old Sun." But, every couple of weeks one song will just jump out and make me put it on repeat for literally hours.

    So, how weird am I? Anybody else do this?
  2. Yeah, man, I've done that a lot in the past! Most recently, I've had my VHS copy of "Michael Manring: The Artist's Profile" cued up to his live performance of "The Enormous Room", and I just watch it over and over and over.

    From week to week there is always a certain song that I really get into above all others, and I play it to death. Last week it was Pat Metheny's Spiritual. Just a few days ago I picked up the Thelonious Monk c.d. of the Ken Burns Jazz series and I must have listened to Green Chimneys close to a hundred times, I love the song.

    Whenever I have the Flecktones' "Flight of the Cosmic Hippo" in my car stereo, I always listen to "Blu Bop' and "Flying Saucer Dudes" twice. Sometimes I'll play the third tune (Turtle Rock) and rewind from there.

  7. i've been doing that with "big eyed fish" from the DMB lillywhite sessions. that "cd" is hit or miss, but BEF is a HIT baby!

    Tons of songs. That's acutally a test I run...if I can stand it more than three times in a row..:D

    I've done this to nearly every song I have on Mp3...
  12. I am not a huge fan of listening to single songs over and over unless I am listening to something long like Tubular Bells. This disks I keep listening to over and over lately have been "Zoot Allures" by Zappa and "Revenge" by Mingus.

    I've listened to Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Riviera Paradise" on the "In Step" album so many times, I've had to buy 3 CDs. There's something about that song...

    The current song I have on repeat is "Double Trouble" , Disc Two (Live Disc) of Eric Clapton's "Blues" CD.

    I do that with a lot of songs. I just can't get them out of my head and the only way to ease the pain is to play them over and over. This is also a great way to annoy your roommate or any other person you want to leave the room.

    The most extreme for me was Jane's Addiction, "Ocean Size". I listened to that for a week solid once.
