  • Where is that POP euphoria?!?!

    Remember that? That transcendent moment when all was right in the world. The verse was building into the prechorus and the melody line was climbing and the drummer does a fill and....

    AND THEN I SAW HER FACE!!!
    NOW I'M A BELIEVER

    or

    ... LIKE A BRIDGE.... OVER TROUBLED WATER
    I WILL LAY ME DOWN!!

    or

    ELENORE I THINK YOU'RE SWELL
    AND YOU'D REALLY DO ME WELL
    YOU'RE MY PRIDE AND JOY ETCETERA!!!

    The caps are the way you felt when you heard the big payoff. Pop orgasm. So where are those moments of release now?

    Can you name some of your favorites from the past... or present?

    WHY DO YOU.... BUILD ME UP, BUTTERCUP BABY JUST TO LET ME DOWN?
    AND MESS ME AROUND?

        ...We are the Champions my friend....
        no time for losers cause we are the Champions of the world...

        ...here am i siting in this tin can high above the moon
        planet earth is blue and there's nothing I can do...

        as for a contemporary example- Bon Jovi does killer pop choruses:
        ...Its my life its now or never Im not gonna live forever
        i just want to live while Im alive...

        since you had the balls to list a Monkees tune how about this:
        The Cowsills: ... I love the flower girl...

        OK my next tune is gonna focus on this payoff.
        This is how hits are made.
        Psst... Wanna check out some free tunes?

            Bon Jovi is a perfect example!

            The early Beatles didn't even wait for a build. They'd just jump through the gate full speed...

            HELP!!! I NEED SOMEBODY

            or

            IT'S BEEN A HARD DAY'S NIGHT

            or

            SHE LOVES YOU YEAH YEAH YEAH!

                      I thought that "She's So High" by Tal Bachman got close to this, as well as "Breakfast At Tiffany's" by Deep Blue Something.
                      Every paint-stroke takes you farther and farther away from your initial concept. And you have to be thankful for that. Wayne Thiebaud

                        Incubus' "Dig" stands out as one of the better pop songs in recent memory.
