(KTLA Los Angeles)   Would you listen to the same song on repeat for three days just to get some "Me time"? What would it be: Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, or simply something that keeps eveyone away?   (ktla.com) divider line

I once listened exclusively to 'Burnin - MK Vibe Remix' for two months straight, most of the day every day.

I once had Beethoven's 6th on repeat for several hours while I was working. After a while the lab tech pointedly asked me to change it.

I would rather have quiet for three days.

Back when this song was new, I had a neighbor who blasted it night and day for a couple of weeks. I don't know if she finally got herself together or if enough people complained to put a stop to it.

I won't listen to a song on repeat unless I'm trying to learn the guitar part, and then it's a whole set's worth of songs before I go back for another swing.

Hell, I've got at least 200 cd's of stuff that people run from. I wouldn't have to listen to the same thing twice over a 3 day stretch. Any Dysrhythmia release sends them packing but "Deep Trip" by Destruction Unit makes the brains of others seep out through the ears yet brings me peace.

No. That would be torture.

I know from experience. I worked retail during college and they used to play the same for hour track of music over and over for months at a time. Then, after college I worked as an intern for an entrepreneur who insisted on playing the same spa-style, flute music cd on repeat. Both of those experiences made me contemplate murder multiple times over the course of my work day.

I do this as well, to memorize the lyrics at times.  I have the memory of a fruit fly

Don't you hate when that happens? Recently I wrote Minus Touch instead of Midas Touch.

I would come to your office just to listen quietly, I loved listening to that.

I could listen to Mozart or some other good classical music for three days, easy.  Same song?  Like a symphony?
And how loud does it have to be?  I pick some long-ass  Bob Dylan song but not too loud.

I could probably do the first Tubular Bells three days straight.  Or something equally long and nuanced

Many years ago I was in local watering hole. And I though it would be funny to put $5 into a juke box and use up all the plays on Herman Hermits "Henry the Eighth I Am"
Sadly it didn't work out as I had planned.
