Understanding the Verse/Chorus Connection
There are two anecdotes that can be handy in understanding the verse and chorus connection, depending on whether the verse or chorus comes first. When chorus-led, you can think of the “dramatic roommate” example. Verse-led can be explained via the “couch therapy” example. Both still tie in with the same “Set-up,” and “Punchline” functionality, but have a distinct way of fulfilling these song roles.
