They're still doing it

my neighbors who play the same annoying song over and over, and yes, I've now determined it IS the same goddam song, or at least the same goddam record playing variations on the same goddam...what IS that, anyway? Some tortuous variant of "Heart and Soul," rearranged for the electric kazoo?

Whatever it is, it is now, seemingly permanently, stuck in my head. We hatess them, we hatesssssssss them, we HATESSS THEM FOREVER

Heh. I've got neighbors down the way that really love loud Bryan Adams-eque cheese rock power ballads from the late 80s and early 90s.

When i moved to the old 'hood, it was a brand new HUD subsidized joint. I would play music regularly, but it was n't loud.

This guy next door, though, he hated it and kept telling everyone it was loud. None of us could figure it out. We'd go outside the door of my apt, listen, we could barely hear a thing. How could it be annoying him?

We finally figured out that there was a structural defect in the AC units. My stereo was set up right next to the unit. Noise went directly to his apt.

on another, uh, note, your story reminds me of a list I was on where someone wanted to get revenge on a neighbor. On dj said, get your hands on a record that played a bass line. set it up to play over and over. Leave house for the day. Never loud enough to disturb, but loud enough to annoy.

Sounds like your neighbors have inadvertantly stumbled on this DJ's idea of tortue!

Maybe!

The thing is, it actually *isn't* just a bassline; there's a melody. A really stupid, repetitive, monotonous melody, but a melody nonetheless. It seems to be their get-going-in-the-morning/whistle-a-happy-tune
song, judging from the accompanying bustling noises.

You want annoying? Get a teenager really mad, send her to her room, and then listen to the bass line from some godawful screaming German death metal band for the next four hours. Know that she's playing it to punish you. Know that because her bedroom is upstairs and you're disabled and don't do stairs there's pretty much nothing you can do.

Fortunately the teenager has moved out. And I live in a single family house so I can listen to the same song all I want without anybody hearing or caring.

Heh.

Of course, I've been known to play the same over and over again; but *my* taste is GOOD, see...

Oh my God. My last neighbor played the first Interpol record, a record I actually liked, to the point where hearing it made me feel claustrophobic.

I never say anything about loud music though because I have this really sad childhood story. When I was a kid in public housing, my family was decorating our little Christmas tree and playing Mickey's Christmas ... until a mean neighbor came by and threatened us if we didn't turn it off. It broke my heart at age 4. So, I never ask people to turn their shit down, no matter how painful- it would make me feel like a traitor! :)
