I have this bad habit, where I listen to a song I recently found and really liked, then replay it a million times to the point where hearing it again doesn't really do anything for me anymore.

Is there a specific word for this? Doesn't need to be listening to music, could be any activity that brings you joy, but doesn't after you've done it a million times.


There's ad nauseam:

Having been done or repeated so often that it has become annoying or tiresome.

Another common phrase is doing something to death. In your example of music, you could say that you "played the song to death".
