That seems to jog my memory a bit. It was something like that and the guy when he was interviewed didn't like the band anymore.Haha, I heard a similar story, but the tape was a cassette single of Wham!'s "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go". That would be pretty rough.
That seems to be the theme (did it/had it happen, now I'd rather (insert miserable metaphor here) before hearing that song again. I'll put the James Brown song on again in a few days and see how I feel.Late 70s driving cross country in my '56 Ford, with Jean-Luc Ponty over and over on the 8 track.
Liked him when I started the trip, don't think ever listened to it after. It did help keep me awake
Radio talk show man Larry King told a story on himself from when he was a radio DJ in iirc Miami.
During his evening show he needed to be away from the mike and controls for 20 minutes. So he aired an LP vinyl record that had 25 minutes of songs on one side, and left the studio. There'd be no story except that the record had a repeating skip in the first track. Oops.
Next day, a bedridden gentleman, who had been physically unable to reach over and change the station, calls in to complain. One line of one song had burned into his mind for 20 minutes.
This is an interactive post: You now fill in the detail of which line, of which song, you'd like/hate to hear for 20 minutes.
Probably maybe coulda been Frank Sinatra? Louis Prima?
... me, come fly with me, down to Ack! ... me, come fly with me, down to Ack! ...
I might actually like it, if it was "... leave your worries on the doorstep ..." fave of mine is all

Both are awesome, Heaven Up Here for me by a nose.It's between that and "Heaven Up Here" for me. Nice!
I'm ashamed to admit I haven't heard it (I don't think). Thanks for the suggestion I'll check it out tonight.I could listen to Echo and the Bunnymen's "Ocean Rain" on repeat for hours. A masterpiece.
I just had this exact opposite thing happen today with Kim Cairns Betty Davis Eyes. I never thought much of it but I now like it a lot.I do it all the time - geeking out trying to learn a tune.
About songs ruined by repeat... There's a kind of opposite thing too. A song you couldn't stand because it was painfully ubiquitous. And then it pops up out of the blue years later and you realize it was actually pretty good
