I listen to songs over and over again all the time. My family knows that it is my "thing" to do. I think it's an Aspie trait not related to OCD.

My best friend once asked me how i still can stand a song after hearing it over and over and over again. Normal people seem to dislike a song after hearing it 2-3 times on repeat. Not for me, sometimes i listen to the same song literally all day long. I wouldnt say its OCD because its not a thing i "must" do to reduce anxiety or pain, but its a positive thing. i LIKE hearing a specific song over and over again. I dont know why but when i found a tune that i like i just want to hear it again. And again. And again. Its just the way i am...

Peace
TK

I've done this before, with multiple different songs, too.

Face Down by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus is one of my favorites.

I know I listen to the same few operas over and over again. Usually, I take one opera and listen to it repeatedly for days, sometimes weeks, until I know every single verses and notes. I find that I just need to listen to the whole thing, and some specific part of it to satisfy me, much like I sometimes need to rub the palm of my hand on some materials (stimming). It's very nice to listen over and over again to the same thing.

I use Infinite Looper <click> to listen to the same song repeatedly. I don't think I have OCD.

I thought I might share the song name Run Away by RadioBlackband with you all,because it is my obsessive listening choice.They also have a song called "Nothing Is Permanent" that I really like to listen to over and over again.

Hm, I recall having similar fixations with songs as a teen, I might re-read an old book today and I'll even remember the music I read that story to originally years ago, it's like it all becomes interwoven with the plot and the characters.
I would often scavenge old CD's, even stereo parts and broken headphones from my older sister's hoard to fuel my own interests and start to build up a decent spot in my room where I could happily play music. Back then if I managed to get hold of a new album, it would take weeks to work through the music so that I would be 'listening' and not 'hearing' it. Once I could listen, the interest in a song seemed to become more natural and I might tire of it but still like it, or not. Sometimes I'd hear a song on the radio in the car, and spend hours each day laying in wait with my stereo's radio on, a blank tape cartridge in the record position, waiting for that song.
These days the fixations on a single song for a long time is pretty much gone. I have a broader taste in genres and quickly get to the point where I can comfortably listen to a new album, so excessive song repeats are confined to within the first week of having them. I do still have one remaining ritual where I play the same song, actually an opera excerpt, whenever I get on my treadmill in the evenings, however.

I sometimes thinks OCD gets misused because the repetitive behaviors someone does gets misunderstood or the other person doesn't even understand what OCD is, especially those who claim they have it so they go "I am so OCD about x, y, and z."

I feel the same way about this issue, that and the excessive usage by non-depressed, happy, out-going persons on being depressed, e.g. 'I had a bad day, I'm so depressed right now!' I always want to sarcastically reply, 'I've had a bad a decade: ego, visa vi, I am,' etc... It and OCD look to have been absorbed into popular phrases as a lighthearted form of self-deprecation to gain attention. :/ I used to talk to someone with OCD who told me at his worst he had to wash himself with white spirit every morning just so he could feel clean enough to go to work.
