Ouch.

When I was little I had a certain christmas song that I really liked. I once left it playing on repeat for about two hours while I played a board game.

Music by Holst such as Venus, Neptune and Saturn I found to be good sleeping music once (and I'd listen actually awake for hours whenever I could not sleep), would leave such on repeat the whole night. Gentle dreamy orchestral music just seems so peaceful to listen to on repeat.
And sometimes I loop soundscapes and ambient for sleep, too, might leave a track on loop and forget about it, have it play in the background, too.

Men Without Hats Antartica 10 Hours. Long bus ride. Don't question me.
Never give in be yourself, never give into what people say. If you do you'll be nothing but a pawn in the game of society. If someone isn't like you, don't hate, just be happy for them, no matter what.

Peace can only be obtained by the people of the world wanting it and all wanting it the same way. Not one wanting it one way and the other wanting another way. We all have to view peace the same.

For me, it's mostly Nightwish songs, but there are a few others.

1: The Poet and the Pendulum- Nightwish- 1 hour (but that song's nearly 15 minutes long)
2: Wildfire Part II- One With The Mountain- Sonata Arctica- 40 minutes (Great song. Loved it as soon as I first heard it.
3: Last Ride of the Day- Nightwish- 30 minutes (First it was my alarm, then I decided it sounded more epic in the morning)
4: The Kinslayer- Nightwish- 20 minutes (Especially the second half)
5: Hand of Sorrow/The Cross- Within Temptation- 10 minutes each (Both songs sound better when together. Plus it helps me think when writing.)

I have to spend several hours at least, sometimes up to a day mixing a single song. It gets rather tedious and unless the band is good (which they usually aren't on the bottom rungs of audio engineering), I find myself never wanting to hear or see them ever again :p

Dude I feel for ya. I have a good friend who runs a studio. The HORROR,  The Horror....  The really bad part is engineers  can't laugh. All that's between them and the 'singer' is two layers of 1/2 inch glass. These poor guys have to sit there with straight faces till it's all over. Yes, they have turned the monitors off. Only way to keep your sanity. :3

Four hours trying to learn a single two minute part of one song.

Most studios put a good deal into isolating the vocal booth from the control room. Generally, as long as the talkback mic is off and the singer cant see you, you can laugh as much as you want. Hell, I've had people having full blown arguments in the control room while the vocalist is doing his parts, none the wiser :p

That said, I seem to get lucky for the most part. The people I get in are generally tolerable :D

Longest for me now would be up to 10 hours of Trentemøller's "Miss You" on loop. I put it on to wind down before I go to sleep and leave it running until I properly get out of bed in the morning. I need some sort of quiet noise in the background while I sleep now.

I'm obsessive about not being obsessive... i do everything i can to keep my OCD from effecting my decisions.  i never repeat a song twice in a row, because if i repeat a single song too many times, it gets old, and it takes years for me to appreciate it again...
