Song Binging

Does anyone else get the Urban Word of the Day through iGoogle or an RSS feed? I do, and today was Song Binging: The act of repeatedly and obsessively listening to a particular song or artist over a relatively short period of time. Periods of song binging are followed by extended periods of skipping the certain track or artist, leaving them unplayed.

I read this an immediately thought, Yes! Thank God I'm not the only one who perseverates on music like this! I'm SO not the only one that they've created a phrase just for this specific issue! Woo hoo!

It was sort of like finally being able to celebrate one's own specific mental illness and boy was it liberating.

And, in case you're wondering, I'm currently Song Binging on two songs, both from the movie The Painted Veil (which is currently my favorite movie of all time): River Waltz and La Claire Fontaine (after I finished movie binging by watching it 4 times in the last month I downloaded those two songs and have pretty listened to nothing else since).

Hooray for enabling!
