It’s easy to assume that any given song will feature a chorus, and that we will hear that chorus three, four or maybe five times during the song’s duration. But a chorus is certainly not an essential element to a song and many songs do go without. So how do chorus-less songs manage without the focus and energy of a chorus and can avoiding a chorus actually have advantages?
