Overly repetitive songs but not boring is key?

SO I was checking some songs in dance/house i like from past and literally realised that even if its 4min or 8mn a lot of them repeat the same motif/chord pattern from start to end.

eg.

http://youtu.be/f-Nd5aWM2Ks

http://youtu.be/hjjnZQdGwP8

http://youtu.be/zK1mLIeXwsQ



So it seems in creating dance type songs that repeating one theme from start to end actually works or is common?

Id always been trying to vary my music so far cause i assumed it be boring...BUt it seems this is key also its easier to chill to one song that kinda loops same thing rather than frequent changes.

Obviously theres short breakdownd and introduction and removal of new sounds/instruments/melodies as the song goes along.


BUt would you say in general this is a good process to follow? Its hard to make a repetitive track not boring so it must be a good riff etc
