All The Time

Yes, I do this all the time.  I don't quite know why.  I've made myself so sick of songs this way...  I'll love a song so much that I'll make myself hate it.  But I usually come around eventually and like it again.  Often it's just that I'll find a song that fits my mood perfectly.  I often have trouble putting my feelings into words now and since that's happened music seems to have become a lot more important to me.  It's really counterproductive at times.  This is particularly true on nights when I feel really lonely or depressed.  I'll listen to a song that reflects these emotions and gives more life to them.  And so I just end up subjecting myself to more and more of the same and so I really work against myself.  On the other hand, this can be quite therapeutic and fun sometimes with more positive emotions.

I do this too,right now it a few songs by radiohead,like,Like Spinning Plates,Street Spirit,How to Dissapear Completely,Let Down,The Tourist

I think most people do this, some just do it more, the first reason we listen to music, well actually enjoy art in any form, is because of it's emotionnal significance to us. Right now for me it's turn the page by Bob Seger, love that song. But I feel the Metallica coming back.

Nope, you're definitely not the only one...and glad I could help! :)

I thought I was wierd cause I was the only I thought that did this... good to know I can relate it makes my feel good. :D Thanks for sharing... seriously you made my day!'s probably not the best way to handle things, but it never fails that I do it anyway. I can't seem to help myself.

yes.. i love to fuel my sadness with music

Yeah, I never permanently abandon a song either. ^_^

I'm always doing this. I listen to a song that expresses how I'm feeling, then it seems to fuel it, so I keep on listening. It is rather counterproductive as you said. I too will not listen to it for a while after, but I come back to it eventually.
