  • Why do we play songs until we're sick of them?


    You find a song. Fall in love with it. Then play it to death. Then you're sick of it. Why do we do that? ?? ??

    Practice makes perfect, as they say.

      Many times I've learned a song by ear and after listening to the same song 5 or 6 times I can't take it anymore. Sometimes I never like that song again.

        The only song I ever played until I got sick of it is Clapton's "Cocaine." Back in the day, we'd get requests for it multiple times every set. Didn't want to disappoint or piss off the people, but didn't want to play it every other song, either. We generally ended up playing it three times a night, six nights a week. That was just too much.

        Now, 40 years later, I'm cool with it, but people don't seem to want to hear it anymore.

            Same here. I’m also pretty sure I’ve forever ruined more than a few songs for friends, family and neighbors too
            Thanks, and rock on!

              That's the way to do it.

                One thing about playing songs over and over...you can be daydreaming, drunk, or stoned out of your mind and still play it on auto-pilot well enough for people to like it.
                It's not about money or popularity , although some money would be nice.

                  That's true and I think many of us have done that quite a bit over the years.
