The hook in modern music is the phrase that catches. What you see here, is my hook. It’s a hook I chose for myself(1).
I get confused but, long before The Web, long before I had a vague awareness of Modern Music, not to mention Quantum Physics, I knew about hooks. Google's first definition of fiction(2) April 14, 2004(2) was: a literary(2) work(2) based on the imagination(2) and not necessarily on fact(2).
