12 Things You Face When You’re Addicted To One Song
It is best to let obsessions run their course because the more you try to fight them, the stronger they become.
Obsessions can actually make you successful. They develop you into a more self-aware person, plus prove that there are many ways to be a nerd (we aren’t all into Star Trek and Harry Potter.) You will learn things you never would have. Steve Jobs, Thomas Jefferson, and Leo DaVinci were all known for their extreme obsessiveness, and it gave them the drive to stay working on projects.
Do you have moments when you’re scrolling down on your phone trying to find a nice song to listen to, when you come across that one song you so madly were in love with once upon a time? Seems crazy how you got over that track, because you played it every single moment of every single day without so much as wanting to listen to another one.
Following are the things you go through when you’re addicted to a particular song.
The first time you heard The Song, you had a spiritual breakthrough. Somewhere, another person has had an experience just like you, and put your exact emotions into words. Not only are the words right, but everything about The Song is perfection, down to the way the singer’s voice cracks a little on the final word. When you listen to it you feel heartbroken yet reassured.
You push repeat. And then again, the circular arrow. And again.
Yes, you did just use up the last 28% of your battery listening to The Song.
You wake up with The Song stuck in your head for three days in a row.
All of your old music seems pathetic in comparison to The Song.
You have too much respect for The Song to have ever sung along.
Doodles are no longer funny stick-figure-men fighting each other. They are The Song lyrics, written on every margin of spare paper.
Time is now kept in 4 minute and 36 second increments.
- When you’re about to sleep, it’s that one song that goes on in your head the whole time
And as an obligation, you listen to it once more.
- You make sure to look up the lyrics so that you can sing along with the song
So now you can REALLY enjoy the song. ?
- There is one point in time when you think you’re sick of the song, till it starts playing again
I can’t listen to this anymo- *song starts playing*
- And finally, letting go of that song becomes easy when you catch hold of another that you can binge on later
And then, the song you were obsessed with before, you will never listen to again. Amen
You plan time into your day to be alone so you can listen to The Song.
