Why are so many songs nothing more then just the hook like the artist couldn't take the time to come up with more lyrics?

Take Someone New by Hozier, eighty-nine percent of the song is literally 'and so I fall in love just a little ol' little bit, every day with someone new'. It's like a low budget film that stretches the run time with establishing shots.

    I suspect this is a consequence (whether intended or unintended) of some people being conned by the pestilence of (C)rap "music."  Much of this is "sampling" (better known as plagiarism) of real, legitimate music by the charlatans who create this bilge.  This coincides with the "sound byte" world general society has turned into over the last 30-40 years.  That's very similar to how in this forum Yahoo! had to institute a rule that an answer had to involve at least 15 characters.  We live in the age of an increasingly mindless society.  It's like a self-imposed "Newspeak", in which across time we will lose the vocabulary to express controversial ideas.  Then, we'll be easily overtaken by "artificial intelligence", robots & machines.  The capitalist elite will have won a decisive victory over life.

    Most modern artists can't even play an instrument, never mind write music...

    Because a good hook can mean a hit song. A hit song means success.
