What songs/tracks do you find yourelf hitting the repeat button on?

One of mine is from the Sin City soundtrack: "Absurd" by Fluke - really hard to go past the afterburner electric guitar and throbbing racing engine-like bass line to the point where the vaguely nonsense lyrics are incidental.

Another is from Leonard Rosenman score to the original Lord of the Rings movie: "Helm's Deep" receives the honour on this album partially because it's my favourite scene in the entire movie, which in turn is largely down to the orkish battle hymn that dominates the 7 minute running time, and these approaching subsomic bass notes from a massive horn that sound at a few key moments and take several very long seconds to fade away into the vocals.

On Cybertech's 1994 self-titled album - which is essentially an awesome "What If" soundtrack to a sonically reimagined Doctor Who (with the serial numbers filed off) by the guys who did the rave version of the show's theme tune for Dimensions in Time - I will often hit the rewind button for "Time Loop", the concluding track. It;s a combination of soaring ambient electronica paired with alien winds and a percussive synthesiser bubbling while a snare drum keeps the piece running until it fades out.

Unsurprisingly, Orbital's The Altogether offers up its repeater in the form of "Doctor?", their ambient trance version the Doctor Who theme. As I've expresed elsewhere, the thrum it hits on the realy deep base notes is just turn-the-knees-to-jelly orgasmically good.

The Seatbelts - Tank, you know the Cowboy Bebop intro, always gets the repeat from me.

Jim's Big Ego - Stress  would get the Repeat if I had it.

Tom Lehrer - Poisoning Pidgeons in the Park
Dana Lyons- Cows with Guns

both the above for the humor

Us3 -  Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)

Los Lonely Boys - Velvet Sky

Anything by Santana may get repeated but Europa usually does.

The Beatle - Abby Road. The progression of Sun King, Mean Mr. Mustard, Polythene Pam, She Came in thru the Bathroom Window, Golden Slumbers, The End. Because I love the way one progresses to the other<shrug>

Tom Waits - Nighthawks at the Diner (entire album) but especially Emotional Weather Report because the lyrics really speak to me. His poetry is very evocotive.
Quote
late night and early morning low clouds
with a chance of fog
chance of showers into the afternoon
with variable high cloudiness
and gusty winds, gusty winds
at times around the corner of
Sunset and Alvorado
things are tough all over
when the thunder storms start
increasing over the southeast
and south central portions
of my apartment, I get upset
and a line of thunderstorms was
developing in the early morning
ahead of a slow moving coldfront
cold blooded
with tornado watches issued shortly
before noon Sunday, for the areas
including, the western region
of my mental health
and the northern portions of my
ability to deal rationally with my
disconcerted precarious emotional
situation, it's cold out there
colder than a ticket taker's smile
at the Ivar Theatre, on a Saturday night
flash flood watches covered the
southern portion of my disposition
there was no severe weather well
into the afternoon, except for a lone gust of
wind in the bedroom
in a high pressure zone, covering the eastern
portion of a small suburban community
with a 103 and millibar high pressure zone
and a weak pressure ridge extending from
my eyes down to my cheeks cause since
you left me baby
and put the vice grips on my mental health
well the extended outlook for an
indefinite period of time until you
come back to me baby is high tonight
low tomorrow, and precipitation is
expected



Actually alot depends on my mood and where my heads at. At one time Supertramp - Dreamer would have been repeated but now not so much.

I'm embarrassed to say last week was... "Umbrella" by Rihanna.

I tend to suffer from brain hiccups* in the worse possible way. It took nearly three weeks of listening to THAT song four or five times a day to get it out of my system. (edited: As you can see, I don't tend to listen to R&B, which what makes this so odd).

Other repeatables: "Answer Me with Silence" - Laura Powers; "The Chill of October" - Client; "Basket Case" - Green Day (my personal theme song); "Living In A Lie" - Guano Apes; "Stand My Ground" - Within Temptation; "Goolie Get-Together" - Toadies; "Bless the Child" - Nightwish.

*Brain hiccups - the phenomenon that causes the same part of a song to continuously replay in your head.

Very little, I have trouble paying much attention to music - I love it in the background, but I never sit down to just listen to music.
There's a version of one of the bond theme tunes by Stringfever (a string quartet) which I've repeated a few times - partly because I find it somewhat inspires the idea of a steam spy game... though their version of "Eleanor Rigby" is also worth listening to a few times.
Tom Lehrer's "Hold your hand in mine" go a few listens to - after seeing Neil Hannon perform it live (from Divine Comedy).
I've sat and listened to the Planescape: Torment soundtrack over and over for about 5-6 hours.

I tend to go through phases with different artists. A couple of weeks ago I was finding it difficult no to listen to the same Wolfsheim album 3 times a day. Similarly with Roger Waters. At the moment I seem to be heading back to Tori Amos.

I also keep a last.fm profile http://www.last.fm/user/meadicus so if anyone is truly curious all of my music listening at home is charted there.

But Anderson was asking for specific tracks people hit 'repeat' on. I tend to be more of an album man but there are a few tracks which have occasionally induced this behaviour.

Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb, Echoes, Atom Heart Mother, Mother, Shine On You Crazy Diamond (I-IX), Let There Be More Light
Queen - Doing Alright, Save Me, Somebody to Love
Tori Amos - Winter, Hey Jupiter, Digital Ghost, Crazy, Silent All These Years
Roger Waters - Gunner's Dream, Perfect Sense,
Wolfsheim - In Time
Smashing Pumpkins - Today
Jefferson Airplane - Somebody to Love, White Rabbit
Led Zepplin - Kashmir
The Doors - Ghost Song, Love Her Madly

The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.
