Music Is Good....

a: Music motif ~
b: a hook

What: "But there is another element related to the hook, called the motif. Like the hook, a motif is a short, repeated idea. But while a hook tends to repeat the same way each time, and is very noticeable, a motif serves as a starting point - a building block - for other ideas that appear in a song, and does its work mainly in the background. Think of a motif as being similar to a certain shade of green that's used as the main wall colour in the kitchen, but also serves as the colour of the mat in the bathroom."
