Okay.

I came up with a situation where someone could listen to a normal song over and over (like 7 times) without something unhealthy going on: if he or she is a musician who is trying to learn it. Although I don't know how many musicians use that technique and don't know if that would be a good way to learn.

I can't listen to a song more than once in a row. Usually I listen to my playlist once a day or maybe once every few days then I'm off trying to discover something else. I prefer listening to songs that feel fresh. Otherwise it just becomes redundant which is a turn off for me.

A roomy of mine picks a handful of songs and plays it over and over and over again for about a week. Then she picks another bunch of songs and does the same. Besides being horrible songs it drives me insane. I have to block it by putting my headphones on.

She's been playing the whole Eamon Frankee diss songs lately. Yeah, it's irritating as hell.

Or he or she is not a musician and perfectly healthy with nothing unhealthy or even abnormal going on and just really likes the song.

Instead of inventing a situation to psycho analyse just because you WANT there to be something wrong with such a person and absolutely refuse logical and sound arguments (non of which agrees with you), why not find somebody who does do this and ask them?

No one I'm personally friendly with does that, as far as I know. I've asked here - no real answer. With the exception of listening for training purposes or something like that, at some point - maybe 7 consecutive active listens (of a song that isn't very short) - it's so excessive that something unhealthy must be going on - can we agree on that?

No, because there is 0 basis that it is because of something unhealthy going on.

Just because what few people you interacted with out of the billions on this planet don't doesn't mean it inherently is unnatural or a sign of anything unhealthy.

Most songs behave like a bubble. They hit and disappear soon.

I try to find the sweet spot with a new song that I really like -- play it enough that it's in my head but not TOO much where I overplay it. I might purposely avoid the song / album for a few weeks just to let it settle in.

Because once it goes into "overplay" mode, I burned myself out and it could take months, maybe years before I can truly enjoy the song / album again.

I sometimes listen to a song over and over when I first discover a particular artist or band that I like. Other than that I hardly ever listen to a song more than once that I am familiar with.

I've had it with a few song for a while, but generally speaking, no. It ususally happens when I have the same song stuck in my head all day.

This is one of them it happened to on a certian day:

Sublime - What I Got - YouTube

It makes me happy :3. I also like how I can sing along, it's in my vocal range, since it's not high , unlike some other bands I listen to...
