For how long can you listen to just one band? Song? Album? Genre?
For example, I find it hard to listen to technical thrash metal for an extended period of time (although I really like the genre). But it's relatively easy to listen to power metal or grunge all day long.
There is this one song that plays repeatedly in my car. A few weeks ago, all of my gospel radio stations stop playing. I tried listening to some of the other stations, but it just wasn't the same. I put in a gospel various artists CD that was given to me and have been playing track 6 repeatedly ever since. It's amazing how the loss of my favorite stations has worked out to be such a blessing!
I can listen to the folk music era endlessly--love the songs that told stories.
I can play a Celtic Woman CD in the car for days and days
Can listen to jazz for several hours.
Can handle rap for five minutes--if I try real hard.
Pretty much everything I listen to falls under the umbrella of hard rock/metal/punk rock, but even in that niche there are a lot of sub genres and different styles. I tend to grab a dozen or so random CDs out of my cabinet every morning to listen to throughout the day and therefore I get a decent mix of 70s rock, classic metal, thrash, hair metal, punk, etc.
...and then when I'm in the mood for something completely different I'll throw in some Weird Al Yankovic (working on a Hub about him right now!) or the "Rocky Horror Picture Show" soundtrack.
I do get on a "kick" once in awhile where I'll listen to a certain band, or a certain album, over and over again for days at a time, but it's rare.
I love country western songs. All the different musical instruments used in country music is awesome. I can listen to rock music only for a short time, beyond that it jars my very existence. Maybe it has something to do with my age. Love Indian classical music. Can listen to it anytime, all times, time after time, any number of times!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the song Time after Time by Cyndi Lauper (don't know if the spelling is correct).
One song: about 1 hour. I have done that several times, especially if I am in a very specific mood. One band: about 4 hours, depending on how many songs. Genre: I mainly listen to only one genre. Pretty much all the time.

What genre of music do you listen to?I wondered what genre was listened to, and why. Perhaps the favorite radio station could not be found, or tuned in for some reason. All that I can get in my area are country radio...
