The show you’ve all been waiting for…or maybe that was just Neel. The Song Talk Radio Team tackles the subject of the pre-chorus; what it is, what it does for a song, and why have one? Singer/songwriter Melanie Peterson joined us to perform one of her songs as an example, “Been So Long.” To add a few more examples to the mix, Phil brought “Buddy Holly“, a short catchy tune by Weezer, Bruce brought Beige Shelter‘s latest release “Light Your Way” (by Adi Aman and Neel Modi), , and Neel presented “Head Like a Hole” by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails.
We talked about:
- How the pre-chorus relates to song structure
- How is a pre-chorus different from a bridge?
- How it amps up the energy
- How is the pre-chorus different from the verse and the chorus?
- Neel and Adi’s co-writing process for Light Your Way – check out Neel’s blog post on this
