OCD Reports

I'm gonna start up a new on-going feature here in the land of Boymeat. Every now and then, I display some OCD tendencies. This usually comes out in the form of collecting (find one item in a grouping, like it, and then obsessively need to own them all,) and in terms of music.

Sometimes I am struck by a song. It might be the beauty, the relevance of the lyrics in my life, the rythym, the beat. Something in it speaks to me deeply, and I replay it. And then again. And again. And suddenly, I find myself obsessively listening to this same song for a day, two days, sometimes a week.

It's rather frightening sometimes.

Anyway, I am going to share with you all what songs get trapped within me and get repeated ad nausea. I'll give you the artist, with a link, and the song, with a link to the lyrics. But, I won't tell you the significance as to why I am replaying it. That you'll have to figure out for yourself. A little game, perhaps.

Last week, from Thursday through Saturday, I was stuck on the title track from Susanne Vega's album entitled 99.9 F.

And since yesterday, I must have listened to The Dresden Dolls' The Perfect Fit maybe 20 times. And I don't see the trend ending soon.

(both of these songs and albums were added to my life by eisa - thanks for adding to my OCD tendencies, luv.)

Perfect Fit is an amazing song and I myself will sit and listen to it over and over again and even sing along to it. It's a good frustration song for me. Usually hits me at least once or twice a month.

Especially the
"Will you just fix it for me.....it's gone Bezerk.
Awww Fuck! I'll give you anything if you can make the damn thing work!"

There are alot of songs by DD that do that to me.

and there is nothing wrong with OCD tendencies with music.
I really think that if the music is really good and hits that close to home being OCD with it is a good thing.

it could be normal, but it isn't -- quite.

Both very good songs, Sir. I'm not one for replaying over and over, but I can understand it.

Nothing abnormal about the song OCD ... of course, judge the source on this. Your choices of songs to obsess about are quite good, and very interesting.

Hope you are holding up ok with work and home hunt. *hugs*
