    one of these songs

    This is one of these songs that I could listen to for hours...

    1 ...and it will not get boring.
    2 ...and it would not get boring.
    3 ...and it's not going to get boring.
    4 ...without getting bored.

    Which ones sound best?

    Re: one of these songs

    Number 4 is briefest and best. It keeps the focus on the original subject, I, rather than introducing a new, unnecessary one.
    I am not a teacher.

    I'd say 'This is one of those songs ...'
