Oh I love this sort of thing. I first encountered it with Beethoven’s 9th Symphony stretched to 24 hours, and it’s a fascinating way of listening to something, because in between the note changes you hear overlaps and individual entrances that would normally happen too fast to register in the brain.

Its always 9 hours in my head. If nothing else is on, it’s playing away.

At least Psycho Killer got the heave-ho. Don’t read anything into this. It is just the way it is. Pachelbel’s Canon was there for a bit too and I don’t think anyone died in that.

We’ve all got our multi-hour songs in our heads
