    Been going back to Regina Spektor a lot lately. Regina is my listening, and The Beatles make up my 'bass practice'. Though, I'm having a period of 'rediscovering childhood classics' - latest rediscovery: Architechs and Nana - Body Groove.

    Yup, every time I get into a new artist. I'd listen to their song(s)/album on reply until I get obsessed with a new artist ^^;

    Happened with Coldplay, Big Bang, N.E.R.D...

    I'll have odd days where I just listen to a lots of albums by one artist and weeks where i'll listen to just a few artists repeatedly but never just one. This is probably as a consequence of being scared that over-listening to things may lessen my appreciation to them. <_<

    Yeah, I go through those phases a lot. They normally last around 2 weeks. It's most annoying though when your listening to an artist/band and no-one's heard of them, so you can't talk about it and when you do, they're like 'WTF!' Gets me everytime.

    At the moment, it's probably Drake.

    Yes. It's so annoying. Afterwards I end up hating them because I've listened to their songs so much. :/

    I listened to Up The Bracket and pretty much nothing else for a solid month when I was 15.

    At the moment I'm listening to a lot of Bombay Bicycle Club. They're not particularly fantastic (but still pretty good) but every time I open Spotify I end up listening to them. 'How Are You' is on repeat.

    I tend to listen to a band a lot after I've seen them live and been really impressed. After I saw the Hives I listened to them every chance I got for about a week.

    I try to stop myself though because I end up getting bored of what is a really good song just because I've listened to it too much.
