I'm somewhat obsessive about music, so I tend to get into replay loops a lot, and since my iTunes jukebox is somewhat imposing - 4,000 songs/11 days' playtime and counting - there are hundreds of songs that trigger them. Some of the recurring and recent ones...

Within Temptation - It's the Fear (talked about this one in my blog - it's outrageously good)
Agnes Poetry - Upside Down (talked about this one in my blog, too)
Orbital - The Doctor (as has been said, it's magic)
Many of Murray Gold's pieces for the new Doctor Who show (variations of the main title, Doomsday, I'm Coming to Get You, Rose's Theme, Face of Boe, The Lone Dalek, etc.)
AFI - Love Like Winter
Bowling for Soup - 1985, Stacy's Mom, Thirteen, Jimmy Neutron Theme
Angels and Airwaves - Breathe, The Adventure
Burgundia - Pale (she's an as-yet unsigned but unbelievably talented classically trained soprano I expect to see more of in the future)
Cory Sipper - Practice
The Donnas - Safety Dance
Frankie Valli - Grease
John Williams - Superman Main Title (I can't wait for the new 18-disc set they're releasing, it's gonna rule all)
VNV Nation - Beloved, Too Close, Standing, Epicentre
Vangelis - Blade Runner score (any or all of it)
Zooey Deschanel and Leon Redbone - Baby It's Cold Outside
A-Ha - The Sun Always Shines on TV or Hunting High and Low
Ago - Tell Me Where You Are
April March - Chick Habit
Assemblage 23 - Document
Aurora - Ordinary World
Most of the stuff off the Buffy musical disc (and for that matter tons of stuff by Christophe Beck, especially Close Your Eyes, Remembering Jenny, Waking Willow, Loneliness of Six, and Sacrifice - especially with the voiceovers from the show)
Avril Lavigne - My Happy Ending
Blaqk Audio - Stiff Kittens
Blue October - Calling You (sweet Zombie Jesus this one got under my skin - I thnk I listened to nothing but it for a good two days of writing)
Blue Oyster Cult - Don't Fear the Reaper, Veteran of the Psychic Wars, Godzilla
Blues Saraceno - Dead Zone Epic
Comsat Angels - Gone
Conjure One and Poe - Extraordinary Wayand One World (as well as Poe's Haunted, Wild, and Spanish Fly)
Conjure One and Sinead O'Connor - Tears from the Moon
Covenant - We Stand Alone (which, as a minor spoiler, is my unofficial theme song for Crucible)
Cruciform Injection - Recovery (not only is their music cool, the band's cool too!)
Oingo Boingo - Insanity (off their final and best album, IMO)
Crystals - Then He Kissed Me
Darling Violetta - Angel Theme Song
Delirium - After All
Delirium and Sarah Maclachlan - Silence (and its many remixes)
Depeche Mode - Home and most stuff off of But Not Tonight and Music for the Masses

Um, Pat?

I think they wanted the list of songs you listen to on repeat, not a copy and paste list of Tower Records inventory.

LOL! Believe it or not, there isn't a single song/artist on there I haven't listened to on repeat for at least 3-5 plays at a stretch (and often much, much more). Like I said, I'm kinda obsessive about music.  Cheesy

I could probably get that way if I had a better head for names.  As is, for most of the songs I like, I couldn't tell you the title, let alone what band it is from.  I lost count of how many times my friends are talking about songs I have never heard...until they play it.  Then I usually exclaim something to the effect of " Oh, THAT song!  Yea, it's pretty cool."

Wow, that's a heck of a list. Though I get the feeling I'd be coming up with something of similar length if I started listing all my favourites. I'm not obsessive about music, just eclectic.

BTW, if people are looking for some good chase music try "Backseat Driver" from the Tomorrow Never Dies soundtrack. David Arnold and Propellorheads certainly make beautiful music.

A second visit to the list brings up the following.

"Still Alive" by Jonathan Coulter featuring Ellen McLain. It's so gleefully jaunty, but it's Ellen brilliant turn as her alter ego GLaDOS that really makes this shine - her voice has a hypnotically enchanting quality to it.

"I Am The Doctor" by Jon Pertwee. Essentially a spoken word performance over a Derbyshire-esque rendition of the iconic theme music (mmm, twangy piano strings), it brilliantly sums up the character of the zen action man version of the Doctor. As a result it also amusingly seems to side with the idea of intelligent design almost three decades before the idea became popular.

"Call Me When You're Sober" by Evanescence. The hurt of the lyrics and Amy's talent for expressing them is palpable, and it combines nicely with a rocking guitar riff.

"On A Bridge" by Halogen. Mournful lyrics paired with a hauntingly etherial vocal performance that shifts mood halfway through much the way "Call Me" above does into a hard rocking chorus. It's hard not to groove on the line "The glory of pure will".

"Everything's Wonderful" by Lily Allen. Three and half minutes of gleeful snarky pop, it's not so much the whole song that sees it get repeated by a specific snatch of the middle verse - it's my current tag line - that's just so brilliantly absurd and delivered in just the right manner that makes you go "I wanna hear her say that again".

"Six Underground" (The Perfecto Dub Remix) by the Sneaker Pimps. It's virtually a completely different song from the original, but it's just so thrummy will a great laid back beat to it. Perfect chill out music.

Assemblage 23 - Document

The "Ultimate Gloom remix by Echo Image" of that track is probably one of my all-time most listened-to tracks. Has an endearing bouncy quality (in spite of the name) and adds a female vocalist for a nice duet thing Smiley

In fact, looking at tracks that I think I've listened to most during the past couple of years (on ipods and my old computer), it would probably have some of these at least (and I just have to rise to the challenge):

Aïboforcen - Twilight World (Icon of Coil remix)
Apoptygma Berzerk - Burning Heretics, Spiritual Reality, Kathy's Song (Victoria remix by VNV Nation), Unicorn (Duet version)
Audioslave - Shape of Things to Come
Babylon Whores - Exit Eden, Sol Niger
Bachman Turner Overdrive - Takin' Care of Business
Binary Finary - 2000
Captain Tinrib - 2001 Final Frontnose, Mackerel, Blue Oyster (remix), Coke, cos I learn 2 cope
Cocooma - Yellow Base, Virtual Experience
Craig Armstrong - Escape from Mantua (Romeo and Juliet score)
Cydonia - Animals, The "In Fear of a Red Planet" album
Das Ich - Destillat (VNV Nation remix)
Front 242 - Headhunter (Funker Vogt remix)
Front Line Assembly - Evil Playground (Tim Schuldt remix), Colombian Necktie (Tim Schuldt remix)
Funker Vogt - F-117, Gunman, Black Market Dealers, Tragic Hero
Haujobb - Dream Aid (Filtered thru Assemblage 23), Penetration (Future Fuck remix) (No, I'm not making that up, and it's a good track!) Smiley
Icon of Coil - Remove/Replace
Jesper Kyd - 47 makes a decision (Hitman 2: Silent Assassin soundtrack)
Lab-4 - Mind Control, Bardig, Reformation, others (been too long!)
Moby - Natural Blues, Extreme Ways, In my Heart
Muse - Assassin, Knights of Cydonia
Neuroticfish - Prostitute (NYC Club mix)
Nightwish - Sacrament of Wilderness
Nomad - Psylodelic
Op:L Bastards - Scorpius
Panzer AG - Sick is the one who adores me
Parallel Project - Fusion Album (music by Negative Format, vocals by Tom Shear of Assemblage 23, Mark Jackson of VNV Nation etc.)
Praga Khan - Injected with a Poison (BK and Nick Sentience remix)
Rammstein - Amerika, Moskau
Rotersand - Electronic World Transmission (SITD remix), Almost Violent (Psyche Remix)
Sentenced - Killing Me, Killing You
Slipknot - Wait and Bleed
Slusnik Luna - Sun
Solitary Experiments - Miracle (original and Flesh Field remix), Essence of Mind (SITD remix), Pale Candle Light
Swarf - Subtext (Bold remix by Weirdo)
System Syn - Momentary Absolution (first promo I ever got, I've paid them back by listening to it... a lot) Smiley
Theater of Tragedy - Machine (VNV Nation remix)
Unter Null - Playing the Fool
VNV Nation: Beloved, Electronaut, Honour 2003,
Weirdo - Curva Peligrosa, Exotic Particles, I know a Plaice, The Other Side
Zombie Nation - Kernkraft 400 (DJ Gius remix)
? - Max Payne 2 theme (Max Payne 1 theme is my ringtone) Smiley

Funny, while I feel that I like Assemblage 23 in the abstract sense, I don't find myself listening to it very often. Disappoint was one of my first two ebm/futurepop/electro industrial CDs, so I guess I must have burned it out in ~2003 or something... The only bands that I really listen to, as opposed to individual tracks are pretty much Informatik, Juno Reactor, VNV Nation, XP8 (and occasionally Babylon Whores, when I need get that metal vibe) Smiley

I had to sell my turntable in 2004, so I've been cut off from my hard trance vinyls ever since... but I still got the collection waiting for an apartment big enough to fit both a 5 channel home theatre setup and DJ gear Cheesy (I found out I can squeeze just one of those into a studio).

So er. That's my musical history from 2004 onwards, pretty much Smiley

Reaaaaally? I may have to look that up. It actually looks like we have fairly similar taste in music, so I may just sample from the stuff on your list I haven't heard yet in the near future. Thanks!

The Portal song.

Even when it isn't on the radio/computer/anything that emits noise, I can hear it on repeat.

That song needs to be released as a single so they whack in on the music countdown shows as a video clip.

So I haven't played Portal and hadn't heard this song before I just clicked through to it in the Cool Vids thread.

Sigh. I get it now. I'm so gonna be humming this thing at work tomorrow...

Knights of Cydonia - Muse (a couple of Muse tracks are really really good, the rest I can take or leave - but I'm crap with names and can never remember which ones are which - except the KoC).
