List of some common part of songs
Michael Jackson used in the song “Billie Jean” a catchy chorus. Since the chorus is the most memorable melody of a song, he introduces two verses before the chorus, and used repetitive lyrics to state the summary of his action. Such lovely idea is what made the song one of the greatest hit of all time.
The Beatles used in the song “She Loves You” a wonderful intro. Since the intro is an instrumental opening that should introduce the tone and rhythm of a song, a melodic chorus is used to open the song! This is new right?, breaking the typical form. That is why the song made waves around the world.
Pharrell used in the song “Happy” a lovely tune. The pulsating, up-tempo beat has the power to get stuck to your head once you listen, even though the tune was initially intended for a popular kid movie ( Despicable Me 2) it is generally enjoyed either it is being listened to by a parent or a child. The amazing tune is the key to its massive success it recorded.
Lady Gaga used in the song “Bad Romance” a ultra-catchy chorus. It is unique like many great songs of all time as we can make a case for few different part of the song technically being the hook. Between the can’t-get-out-of-your-head ‘Oh oh ohs’ and the thumping drum line this is a tune that as much as the classics from decades ago deserves to be in conversation, it does too.
Queen and David Bowie used in the song “Under Pressure” a great hook. On a lighter mode, the dum-dum-dum-di-di-dum-dum beat which accounts for the 99 percent of the hook of “Under Pressure” was even borrowed by ”Ice Ice Baby” many years later and made Vanilla Ice a star. This beat works fine for decades now and across genres for a reason. It’s spelling out the height of creativity involved in the make-up.
Also, so many other songs that have rocked the music industry in ages uses so many unique ideas to make it awesome and perfect.
