When you can't stop listening to a piece... on December 23, 2015 @ 9:24 amReport this post as inappropriate#1

It seems a few works draw me in so much that I can't stop listening to the piece, and don't want to move on at all for a while... which may take 5, 10 or more listening of the same piece or set of pieces over and over again! When I turn off the music, I keep hearing it in my head during the day and I want to revisit it later, without getting tired of hearing the same piece again.

So far that has happened with a few pieces, such as:

- Beethoven Cello Sonatas
- Beethoven String Quartets
- Dvorak Cello Concerto
- Haydn Cello Concertos
- Bartok Concerto for Orchestra and String Quartets
- Mozart Piano Concertos
- Brahm's Violin Sonatas and Piano concerto #1

My philosophy is to never leave as long as the piece draws me in...

Wondering how others hear have the same experience and for which pieces.

Yes.. You are right.. This also happens to me sometimes. I don't remove which piece but I used to have the same experience. Music is really a peaceful feeling.

I have a very similar kind of experience everytime I listen to something mellow and dark, I don't know why but it somehow resonates with me in ways that couldn't compare with others. Steven Wilson is the prime example of the kind of music that keeps drawing me in, especially from his own album.

Another I really like is Beck, especially from the album Mutation, Runner Dial Zero is my go-to mellow music. Gazpacho also really likes making dark and melodic music that I just could not turn away from. Something like Black Lily and Molok Rising is just mind blowing.
Lastly, I've been listening to many folk-oriented music lately and find them to hold similar qualities that lures me right into it like a moth to a flame. These include Pentangle, Finterforst, and also this Thai band my friend recommended to me: The Rube
