When you hear to song that is new to you, that you enjoy a great deal,
Do you obsess over it and play it again and again?

For example with the recent Leon Russell posts I found a song by Mary McCreary Russell that I love called: Butterlies In Heaven.

Just curious. Do some of y'all do the same thing?

Yep - quite often I do. And it doesn't have to be a new song but I sometimes do this with tunes that I haven't heard in awhile and am revisiting and getting really moved by.

The answer is yes!!! I am playing Tony Tyler's "Radio" at least ten times a day.
I go to myspace and listen to it.

YES. Currently obsessing over Jerry Joseph. I've got the new CD and have been streaming nothing but Sugarmegs for 2 weeks. I've lost count of how many times I've heard "Climb to Safety".

Oh, YEAH! That's how I know a song has "IT". I hear it and immediately have to hear it again. And again. Then I'm away from music for whatever reason (work, etc) and it plays in my head the whole time so as soon as music is accessible, I plug it in and listen to it again. And again.

First time I heard Gov't Mule's "Brighter Days" was like that. First time I heard the original ABB recording of "Soulshine." Many, many more examples...

I loved Brighter Days as well, and listened to it repeatedly when it was fresh - as I do with many tunes that are new to me and really hit the note.

On a related note - a few years back, I could time to the second how long I had to hold down the CD back button in my car to get back to the beginning of Duane's solo on Stormy Monday from AFE.

All the time. It drives the people around me crazy, but I do it anyway.

You want to talk about driving people crazy - when I was selecting tracks for Top Droog's favorites, vol. 6, it was easy to identify which songs I would use, but not necessarily which versions/dates/sources I wanted to use.

Man, the people in my office suite must have heard tunes like Afro Blue, Sahib Teri Bandi and This Sky dozens of times each over the course of that project. I'm sure they were glad when I wrapped up that little project.

It's easy to download a song now, but in the pre Itunes days, I would flip the radio stations endlessly to hear "the song" that I wanted to hear.

Also, love using Pandora when I have a song that I'm really liking.

How do you get Pandora to play THAT song?

Sometimes it plays it first, but you're right, you can't play it repeatedly in Pandora...for that you have to buy it.

A couple of years ago I left Tallahassee on a Sunday morning and drove home
to Delray Beach with Gregg's Laid Back in the CD player and listened to it for six
hours, over and other. And I was ready to play it again the next day. I still play
it often.
