    Default Musical obsession poll

    Do you become obsessed with new music? If I hear an album I invariably hate it the first time, get hooked on a couple of tracks the second, and then listen to it repeatedly for about a fortnight (and hear songs during the day/when I'm trying to get to sleep)

    So on the flimsy premise of attempting to identify some kind of type-based generalities here, respond!

    Edit: Bugger, forgot to make it public. You'll have to post to maintain the charade of keeping this MBTI-related.

    Well, there are a couple of titles that did that to me, except I liked them the first time, and all the subsequent times. Although with too many listens, I can get burned out on them temporarily. But I seem to come back to them eventually anyway.

    Duran Duran - Greatest Hits

    Styx - Brave New World

    The Big 80's: Arena Rock

    This intense preference for 80's music seems really weird when you consider that I'm 19.

    I LOVE music, some albums hook me so bad it can be like you said, at least 2 weeks of non stop listening to the album before another album hooks me. I kill the songs lol seriously, after too many weeks of hearing said album I am not so into it anymore, until a certain amount of time passes.

    There are some songs though that I have to listen to weekly, need my dose.

    Blue October was the last obsession, and now the orange lights who only have 2 songs to obsess over.

    Not exactly obsessed.. but I do enjoy hearing music I already like in a better format. So, when I bought my stonking new subwoofer (Mordaunt Short) to complete my system, I had a lot of fun last week with some of my favourite music. Not sure the neighbours enjoyed :-)

    Hmm, well, the music I become "obsessed" with is usually not "new" per se, but new to me... oftentimes I'll find a couple songs I like, then go back to my old obsessions, then come back to the new album and assimilate it into my obsessive collective...

    Music in general is an obsession to me.

    I go through spurts where I become obsessed with all things, really. Or at least interesting things. Right now I'm disgusted with the state of much of the new music I hear so this isn't one of them.

    But that's not always the way of it. I can look back and see intervals where I paid great attention to music, in particular, new stuff, and others where it was nowhere on the radar.

    This signature left intentionally blank.

    Really.

    Amen to that; on past occasions I've genuinely not realised that I've heard a track before.

    Ah, to have money to spend on these things.
