FMD 2/2/18 – I Got You Babe + Super Bowl Music

What song could you listen to over and over and over and over if you had to?

Also, drop your list of 1 song played 10 times! Or your 10 song list. That's good too.

Also, let's talk about Super Bowl-related music stuff. We all agree Prince was the best halftime performance, right? Who else is up there? What do we expect from JT? Etc.

  3. I think I would start to hate most songs quickly if I had to listen to them over and over. Sometimes I'll listen to a song twice in a row if I'm really into it or it's catchy. But if I had to pick one I'd definitely go with something classical, soft, long, without a lot of repetition.

    Now if it's just the same song every morning at 6:00 am, then I could deal. Maybe something from Dave Matthews Band like "Spoon" or "#34" or "#41"

  4. Not by choice, but according to last.fm, as of last week, I've now heard "Thunder" by Imagine Dragons enough times in the past 4 months to make it my most played song of the decade.

    1. Ha! The jalapeno is totally into that song. Also "Closer" by The Chainsmokers. (Which meant I had the pleasure of explaining what "chain-smoking" is.)

  5. Just thinking of songs lately that I've listened to multiple times, Eric Whitacre's "Lux Aurumque" sung by the Concordia College choir (look it up - it's on YouTube and it's awesome) or the last 1½ minutes of "Young Persons Guide to the Orchestra" by Benjamin Britten (the maestoso section with the low brass will give goosebumps; otherwise maybe "Victorian Brickwork" by Big Big Train?

  6. I. Copperhead Road - Steve Eare
    II. Blister in the Sun - Violent Femmes
    III. Fame - David Bowie
    IV. Tell Me How - Buddy Holly
    V. Expresso Love - Dire Straits
    VI. Bring It on Home to Me - The Animals
    VII. Broken Houses - Tranzmitors
    VIII. We Could Send Letters - Aztec Camera
    IX. Mona - Bo Diddley
    X. I Confess - The Beat
    XI. Monkey Man - Toots & the Maytals

  7. I could probably listen to the Funeral album on repeat without getting too bothered on the twentieth time.

  8. I've been listening to a lot of Alice Coltrane, so something like her "A Love Supreme" (or John's... if a full album can count as one song. Alice's version is 10 minutes) or "Ptah, the El Daoud" could work for me.
    Or Aaron Dilloway's "Infinite Lucifer", or any of the songs from Black Dice's Beaches & Canyons except "Seabird".

    1. And I've listened to the Arvo Pärt album Fratres end-to-end several times over, even though six of the nine tracks are versions of "Fratres"
