Hooked! is an exciting music game that challenges your music memory. It is based around 2000 of the most popular songs of all time. Though, while Hooked! looks and feels like a game, it is also a science experiment!

What makes music catchy? Why do some pieces of music come right back to you even if you haven’t heard them in years, while you forget others almost immediately? Hooked! is designed by researchers of University of Amsterdam and Utrecht University to answer these questions. The game tests how quickly different parts of a song trigger your memory, and with data from thousands of players, the researchers will be able to see what the catchiest hooks of all time have been and what they have in common. The more you play, the more you contribute to science!

Powered by Spotify, Hooked! ensures high quality audio playback and hours of popular songs.

Sounds really interesting, but...

I don't have Spotify - and isn't that a paid service? I'd love to participate in the study, but am not willing to have to get Spotify first...
