I once downloaded the incidental music from ABC World News Tonight in 1978, and listened to that for hours. The song is only a minute long, too. It kind of reminded me of Goblin, but more exciting!

these tracks either seem to have insistent/thudding/motorik/etc recurring motifs or just a key change/chorus/half-second of sublimity

This got a lot of repeat play, too, when I found it for download. "Heavy Action" aka the Monday Night Football theme. ABC is good with the thrilling instrumental themes!

The first time I heard Madrugada Eterna (the first time I heard anything off Chill-Out), I listened to it like 8 times in a row (and it's an 8+ minute song)

Polmo Polpo's Kiss Me Again and Again, I listened to for like an hour and a half when I first heard it. It's absolutely brilliant.

EDB, Sunday, 5 December 2010 01:48 (ten years ago) link

just a key change/chorus/half-second of sublimity

def

all the trax I mentioned have moments - timbres, melodies or shifts - that tend towards the indescribable - maybe if they're ever fully worked-out they'll lose their magic

Cap.Obv (acoleuthic), Sunday, 5 December 2010 01:49 (ten years ago) link

Actually, I got the madrugada Eterna stats wrong, It's 6 minutes, but I think I listened to it 13 or so times.

EDB, Sunday, 5 December 2010 01:49 (ten years ago) link

I alternated the slow version of "Hello It's Me" by the Nazz and the faster Something/Anything? version by Rundgren solo for a couple of hours once this year.

pretty sure hearing any song more than twice in the space of an hour would make me start to hate it

loved both versions more and more as they played on -- the only reason I stopped was I had to leave the house for an appointment.

Brian Eno's "Through Hollow Lands". Around 1980 I had it taped on one side of a C90 tape as many times as possible. That's only 45 minutes so I am cheating a little here. I listened to it for meditation purposes. Probably I have never come closer to satori ;- That track for me is perfect to clean my brain of those weird things people usually call thoughts.
