It seems we as media fanatics can watch our favorite movie around a dozen times, the same episode of TV maybe three times at most... and our favorite songs a hundred times at least. Although I typically only like to watch a movie or TV episode once since there are so many great movies or shows left that have yet to be seen that could be watched instead. I figured there would have been a scientific study done on this... as I'm listening to new albums now I wonder how long it will take to get absolutely sick of it or to almost begin disliking it. Yet, I could not find a study (through a quick Google search). I try to space out the times I listen to the same song, but there are some songs I would not mind listening to every day (although I'm sure I wouldn't say that after a month). Our response to recorded music, a relatively new invention, is pretty amazing honestly. We can listen to the exact same audio on repeat for a hundred or more times and in some cases still get excited about it. Albeit it is incredibly polished, but at least if you heard the songs live every night then there would be some variation throughout every song compared to repeating the exact same sound-waves. Mood does seem to effect our enjoyment in music more than repetition in my opinion. There seems to be a cycle, in fact. It can usually take a couple listens for a song to grow on you, then a few more to learn all the words, then a peak of exuberance over the song until it gets played out and another song takes its place in your rotation. Much like any other tolerance, time seems to be the only cure for growing indisposed to a favorite song. Nonetheless, how long does it take for our fondness of a song to briefly turn to contempt or even animosity towards it?
