Thread Name: WHAT IS THE 'HOOK'?
Subject: RE: WHAT IS THE 'HOOK'?
wow - that's incredible Jim - because I don't think I've ever read anything on song-writing that DIDN'T sooner or later refer to a "hook"

and there could be argument for at least several of the songs you have listed that they indeed HAVE a "hook" - implicit if not explicit.

A hook can be a musical phrase - it can be a lyrical phrase - or it can be a concept that the song is built around.
