    What is your favourite Katatonia hook? (A hook is a musical idea, a passage or phrase, that is believed to be appealing and make the song stand out. -taken from wikipedia)

    I'm pretty sure their hasn't been a thread on this before so I'll start off...

    For My Demons

    you would never sleep at night
    if you knew what I've been through
    and this thought is all I have
    to trust upon when light is gone

    the way it's sung gets stuck in my head everyday. So... what is yours?

    Clean Today

    Will the streetlights reflect me well enough
    Am I transparent when I am clean
    Will the darkness around me be so strong
    That there is no way I can be seen.

    I really don't have one favourite part, but lately I've been addicted to parts like
    'From the Gateways hear me cry, I love youuuu' :p
    and
    'Brave try the meaning of loss, I know your smile is deadly at this point, wherever you are I am not'
    I also like the bridge in Complicity

    The main riff from 'For My Demons' which is also the riff during the chorus. Best hook ever? Maybe.

    I'll go with the chorus of "Chrome."

    I find those lyrics to be extremely visual and haunting, and that little keyboard flourish is just the icing on the cake of sadness.

    Had To Leave:
    I had a choice
    You had to leave
    Into the night
    This was my choice

    Clean Today:
    Will the streetlights reflect me well enough
    Am I transparent when I am clean
    Will the darkness around me be so strong
    That there is no way I can be seen.

    Chrome:
    Burn down my house..

    Criminals:
    Gather your strength and break free..

    O how I adore that part!!


    And Had to Leave:
    it's so hard to explain what I meant
    when I said that I wanted you dead
    but I saw you fuck up and I just can't get back
    the feeling I had for you
    so I put all my strength into my only will
    it was the only thing to do
    and now I only regret that I cried
    cause you would never do that for me


    Strained:Chorus

    A Darkness Coming:That killer lead guitar part!!!

    Actually every fuckin moment in Tonight's Decision...
