Songs that do the chorus too many times


#1

Mansun - Negative (4 times, double chorus each time, so the same thing 8 times)

NOW YOU GO


#2

the las - there she goes
lady gaga - it wasn’t love, it wasn’t love, it was a perfect illusion, it wasn’t love, it wasn’t love, it was a perfect illusion, it wasn’t love, it wasn’t love, it was a perfect illusion, it wasn’t love, it wasn’t love, it was a perfect illusion


#4

Sacrilege, but The Mercy Seat by Nick Cave. I know the grinding repetition is sort of the whole point, and I know I’m usually the one to run to the defence of things that others claim are overly long, but sometimes that song feels like it goes on for a little too long.


#5

It was going to be my next suggestion! So many choruses.


#6

Oh God The Las :fearful:


#7

Roll With It by Oasis. I mean Noel basically just wrote a bridge and a chorus and went back and forth like the world’s worst skipping record.


#8

Hey Fucking Jude.


#9

Norman 3 by Teenage Fanclub (if you can call the “Yeah, I’m in love with you…” bit the chorus).


#10

That’s the thing Raan, some of the songs nominated so far don’t necessarily repeat the chorus.

Hey Fucking Jude, for instance, doesn’t have a repeated chorus so much as an extended coda. And The La’s falls into a similar trap to Roll With It - is it really a chorus when it essentially works as the verse and the bridge too?


#11

there’s always one isn’t there…


#12

#13

Kiss - Rock & Roll All Nite (12 repetitions)


#14

One for every hour of the night?


#15

Exactly when does your night run to and from?


#16

Couldn’t tell you, too busy rockin-and-a-rollin


#17

#18

Well, if Hey Fucking Jude has a chorus (which it doesn’t, really), it’s surely Naaaaaaaa naaa naaa nanana naaaaa…


#19

Suppose it’s sort of the point though.


#20

Ketchup song
