Woman ruins favourite song by listening to it for eight hours on a loop

A WOMAN who liked a song so much she listened to it for eight hours straight can no longer endure even the opening notes.

Nikki Hollis assumed she would never get tired of ‘Here Comes Your Man’ by The Pixies but was proven wrong after hearing the accessible underground hit hundreds of times in a row.

Hollis said: “It was one of those rare things – a good song that hadn’t been overplayed on the radio or used in a John Lewis Christmas advert. And then I went and screwed it up.

“During the third hour I briefly thought I should probably play something else. Then I came to my senses and told myself ‘just one more listen’. I was clearly addicted. I can admit that now.”

Despite an intervention by her friends and family around the seven hour mark, Hollis thought that if she pressed on she might get a second wind.

She added: “I’ve learnt my lesson. Love is an exhaustible resource, like coal. In the future I’ll play it safe and only listen to songs once, or in the case of contemporary chart music, not at all.”
