Consider if you will, the recent hit song “Mr Jones” by Counting Crows. OK?…remember it? Sing it! Go on! Sing it now!
Right. I am prepared to bet good money that all you did was go “#Mis-terr JONES and me.. # “. Why? Because it’s the only bit that sticks in the mind. I assume there’s a lot more to the song than that like the guitars and that – but that’s all we remember.
Compare this to most ABBA choruses – there’s a line or two at least that most people can bash out if they have to.
This is different to just a memorable chorus. This is nano pop. Songs with just a tiny soupçon of memorableness. Any others?
