When one thinks of house music, lyrics are admittedly not the first things that come to mind. Most people are drawn to the genre for the incredible impact of the beats, the fat low-end grooves and the lush melodies that drive the songs. However, the importance of a good hook is completely undeniable, and the best producers know it very well.
Some of the genre's most influential tracks and performers are all about using unforgettable chorus lines as the "cherry on top" to complete their masterpieces and give listeners of all walks of life something to connect with. Scroll down for some of our favorite house music hooks.
"Upon a hill across a blue lake, That's where I had my first heartbreak. I still remember how it all changed." - Swedish House Mafia (Don't you worry child)
"How sorrowful I am, early in the morning rising." - Tiesto (A tear in the open)
“Music is the answer, to your problems, keep on moving, and you can solve them.” - Celeda (Music is the answer)
"Brothers, sisters. One day we will be free. From fighting, violence. People crying in the street." - Joe Smooth (Promised Land)
"I need your love" - Frankie Knuckles (Your Love)
