Have you ever ruined a piece for yourself by listening to it too much?
I fear I've done this with Beethoven's 5th and 7th symphonies. I listened to the Carlos Kleiber recording of them incessantly as a teenager and into college. But now I find I never want to listen to either piece, any recording. I thought this would wear off, but it's been years. I heard the 5th in concert a few months and felt nothing (granted it was a very underwhelming HIP ensemble).

I almost ruined Fidelio, Maria Stuarda, and Barber of Seville by listening to them incessantly. But I would not say ruined, but more of a saturated state where something new is needed. I come back to each at times, but probably will never be as intense as I once was with them. There are works I like but rarely listen to, but have fond memories of the times I was listening to them. That I can listen if and when I want to is enough while I pursue other works. If I never come back to them, it is likely because I found something more interesting.

the only things i seem to listen to obsessively are more current songs from the radio. not as big a deal if those are ruined for me. lol! actually, that's not true. it takes a lot for songs from Handel's Messiah to do anything. i've heard/sang that too much. there are still times where a really super amazing performance does the trick tho. but i find myself avoiding listening to anything from that work.
I ruin pretty much any song I put a lot of work on for one project or another. For instance, I once made a cheesy music video for Papa Roach's "Getting Away With Murder" (I had a class in high school where we made music videos as a class project and it was considered cool at the time). I can still listen to the song but I don't enjoy it as much anymore. When arranging music (currently at 1.75 songs arranged) I have to listen to individual parts and some sections over and over and over. By the end, each time I hear the original song I'm still picking out those parts that are only meant to support the driving melody.
