Dwane Thomas’ Tip of the Week – December 9, 2017

If you are anything like me, and I know I am, sometimes you want to listen to a song over and over again.  I do this often when I am up late answering emails.  Sometimes a catchy, upbeat song will keep me going when I am tired.  I like to listen to an old favorite over and over.

YouTube is a great place to find music.  But, if you want to listen to a song multiple times, it’s not so great.  Unless it is.  There is a trick.

For example, I am up late right now.  And, I am listening to an old favorite.  I am listening to One Headlight by the Wallflowers.  Here is the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zzyfcys1aLM

Now, watch closely.  If I insert the word REPEAT right before the “.com”, I can listen to the song all night long.  Here is what it looks like: https://www.youtuberepeat.com/watch?v=Zzyfcys1aLM.  Of course, the link is just going to take you over to listenonrepeat.com, but… personally, I like starting on YouTube.

Yeah.  I know.  You guys think I am over here listening to Latin chants.  But, no.  It’s late.  Those guys would put me to sleep.

I am classics teacher.  To stay awake at night, I rely almost exclusively on the classics.  Lynyrd Skynyrd,  Credence Clearwater Revival,  Aerosmith,  Guns-N-Roses, The Eagles, Z.Z. Top and (brace yourself, Aunt Vicki…) Tom Petty.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know the objections.  Put your hands down.

Now go listen to your favorite song all day tomorrow.

I hope you have a very happy Sunday!



I am currently working on another book.  I had hoped to have it available already.   Oh, well.  Still aiming for January.  Like a T-rex in a tar pit, the more I struggle, the deeper I sink.  Meanwhile, here’s the book I wrote in 2013.  For the most part, it’s about learning Latin.  The tips and tricks I share, however, do apply to other subjects.  Check it out here:
