Default Re: Are you a "bit" listener?

See, this is what the "hook" is! I wouldn't call it "bit" listening so much as really identifying with good hooks in songs and being fascinated by them. I love a well-crafted hook, but to me, if the rest of the song can't match up to the hook, I'm not going to care for the song as a whole.

A song I often hold up as perhaps the best-crafted pop song in recent memory is "Don't Speak" by No Doubt. If a hook is that part of the song you catch yourself humming, then that song is one seamless set of hooks from start to finish.

... now you're pulling it up on iTunes and/or humming it to yourself, aren't you?
