My wife is one of those people who will play her favourite song of the moment over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again until she’s finally tired of it. Some of the play counts in her iTunes are insane.
Maybe what she needs is a site called The Infinite Jukebox. By analyzing all the possible edit points–place in the song where things can create seamless loops–TIJ can extend a song, well, infinitely. It will only end when you press “stop.”
Using the “New Song” button will take you to a list of the most popular songs, which includes Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jespson and Psy’s “Gangnam Style.”
I can see how this could be weaponized. Imagine being locked in a cell with a never-ending version of “Gangnam Style” at high volume?
Here’s what “Rock the Casbah” by the Clash looks like mapped out. I’ve had the song running constantly for over 12 minutes now. I’m done, thanks.
