Aural Obsessions

The way I listen to music probably annoys other people, like my roommates, who have to hear what I play on a regular basis. I tend to get obsessed with a handful of songs and listen to them repeatedly for however long the obsession lasts. The songs aren't necessarily new, often the are songs that have been in my collection for ages and have heard on a regular basis, but something changes and they become all I want to hear. My fixation on a song can last anywhere from a few days to months and there really is no rhyme or reason to how or what catches my attention. I thought I would share the songs I'm currently obsessed with, so enjoy.

And So It Goes by Billy Joel


Coffee and Cigarettes by Michelle Featherstone


Ever Fallen In Love cover by Pete Yorn (originally by the Buzzcocks)


Between the Lines by Sara Bareilles


Orange Sky by Alexi Murdoch

Hah! I'm a bit the same way. I will download a new song and give it 30-40 new plays before I get tired of it. Some times several times in a row.

That is my favorite Billy Joel song.

This is Exactly the way I am with songs! I've never known anyone else with the same affliction/obsession. Thank goodness for headphones, in order to save others from my habit and myself from the embarrassment of being found out.
