How many times can you listen to a song you really like until you get tired of it? For me, i can listen to it for quite a few times, probably over 10 times. Not consecutively or non-stop i mean, like over time spaced out as long as you feel like.

I've grown tired of punk rock for being all I heard from like 7th grade until 9th, but that's about it.

Depends on how well made the song is for the purpose of repeated hearing.

Instrumental songs are the best for longevity.

I actively listened to this song over 50 times in a row one day, and still am not in any way shape or form tired of it.

I used to listen to songs on repeat

When I was a dumb little kid.

When you listen to the same fucking song over and over again, you spoil it and get suck of it. I listen to albums in moderation. Appreciate that shit.

It's impossible to get sick of ambient or chill, you can't even tell when it loops

Unlimited times, I can listen to a single song on loop all day if I enjoy it enough.

Singles can be just as good as albums if not better. There are still shitty albums and great singles out there.

A new song that's good I will listen to any time of day. Eventually I'll only be able to listen to it in certain moods. That is as close as being tired of it as I ever get.

At the moment I can listen to this perfect song all the time and I reckon I always will actually.

And I don't care for your opinion. I listen to albums because I don't have a small attention span. I want to listen to everything the musician does.

Then you're not getting the full experience and you're not enjoying music as much as you can and you're a filthy pleb.

Then why even listen to music? Music is a connection from the player to the recipient. The only music good for you is this where he likewise doesn't care.

Yeah, sure, ok.

Not only that, but that as well.
Why do you even bother listening to music if you don't care about what the artist intended?

Fact. You want to listen to them because you like them. That makes you a fan.

I just hate classifying an artist's music by albums,

because most albums have songs that I don't like.

I normally get tired of a song after listening to it about 20 times (not repeated).

I remember a number of songs that sounded very catchy to me at first. I listened to them like two dozen times and then I got completely sick of them and wondered why I ever liked them in the first place. For example, I think about everyone had this with Fireflies by Owl City.

On the other hand, there are some songs that I've listened to hundreds of times (according to iTunes) and I still love listening to them. In moderation though, I just can't keep on listening to the same songs forever.

Anyway, I guess it all depends entirely on the song.

Most music sounds the same to me. The first time I hear most pop or rap feels like the 50th time I've heard it if we're going to be honest here. Although when it comes to music I actually like, I can listen to something maybe six or so times consecutively before it gets too repetitive, and probably a couple dozen times over a few weeks before I really get sick of it.

In a row, probably two or three. If it's a song I really like, I do my best to listen to it as inoften as possible so it doesn't wear out.
