    Is this even possible? I realized today it was. I was on my way to the doctor today and was listening to an old favorite of mine and I realized that I had been
    listening to this song since I was 15 yrs old ( I'm 46 now), and have never "burned out" on it. Not once.

    We've all gotten tired of certain bands or songs in our lives and put them away for several years and maybe revisited them occasionally, but how many songs can you really say you never get tired of hearing?

    Anyway, the song I was listening to today was "Catch the Rainbow" from the
    Rainbow alblum "Live On Stage" from 1977. 20 minutes of Blackmore/Dio/Powell
    goodness.

    Another one for me might be "Hocus Pocus" by Focus.

    hey fullpin...

    Most music I like I NEVER get tired of hearing... I may put 'em on the shelf for awhile.. and when I listen I tend to listen to the same tunes for quite a while.... another thing is I'm careful not to let ANY of the tunes I compose and record etc get heard to DEATH!

    Often that's not easy, depending on the project and type of music.. but it is something I learned to handle long ago... Having got sick of a tune before it was even Mastered lol... grrrrrrrrrr

    I guess the closests I get to what you're refering to is new music and even old that's a "filler" on an album or a formula... for example cheap riff and average musicians with a cookie cutter company polish and 30 tunes that sound like they came form the same writer ... band... factory etc.. I burn out instantly on those.... I listen.. then file 'em.... and don't bother with 'em again... You do that?

    Good Thread man... brilliant topic....

    Oooh...there's a few favorites of mine. Tower of Power's "So Very Hard to Go", Spinner's "I'll Be Around", CCW's "Fortunate Son", and Company of Thieve's "Oscar Wilde" come to mind right away.

    You need to hear more from Focus. Hocus Pocus has been flogged to death and most of the rest of their music is actually better. Check out Focus III.

    Little Wing - Hendrix's version only and not the 1 millionth cover of it


    ps: Yes, I realize the silliness of my comment being that I covered it and it is in my signature :) But I dont play it like Jimi. It's just a creation in his honor, in a folky/ambient style.

    This is silly but "Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon as I love the harmonies the guitars, the solo, everything.
    Mysterious Ways by U2 is another.

    I NEVER listen to the same thing twice in a row, but for the past week, I've pretty much listened to "Undercover Man" by Van Der Graaf Generator at least 50 times.

    Johnny Nash "I Can See Clearly Now".

    How would you know unless you've already heard it a billion times? Can I listen to this song and hate it after another billion listenings? This song will stand the test of time when so many others will fail.

    That song is about as close to perfect as anything I've ever found.
