Default musical ruts,....

i've found that i cycle musically,......and sometimes i find myself in a rut,...
i'll listen to the save things over and over until something new catches me,......or i cant stand it anymore,.....
this is 1) driving my friends crazy and 2) sometimes depressing

do y'all do that? and if so what makes you pull outa it

I was in a rut at some point with every band in my top 10.

EDIT-It kinda helped expand my discography with certain artists, because if I like someone I'll do whatever to get everything they have done.

Yeah, I go through that, too.

As for what pulls me out of it...I dunno...it's always something different. Sometimes, it's a an old favorite I haven't heard in a long time...or something by a favorite artist I've overlooked up to that point...or something entirely new that just happens to kind of fall into my lap.

I guess my point is that it'll end pretty damn soon.

You just have to kind of keep yourself open to anything that might come along.

I can be really fickle. I go through phases where I'm all about a particular genre or artist, but I kinda' appreciate that I do that. I mean its your life you get to choose the soundtrack at least.

My great love is Jazz, but that's been on the backburner lately. I've really been diggin on Steely Dan (especially today), Grateful Dead, Tom Waits.....I guess a lot of 70's stuff. I'm also trying to build my appreciation of classical music, but there's not a whole lot that I like.
