Today we are going to be talking about how changing the form by balancing/unbalancing sections can makes things – pop out.
Think about it. A section that is balanced in a group of unbalanced sections would stick-out in the listener’s mind through this juxtaposition. And this works in vice-versa.
A verse of 4 lines where 3 lines out of the 4 rhyme – the odd one out will get more attention from the listener.
Verses that have an unusual rhyming pattern or odd number of lines will create tension. Making the chorus a place of even resolution will make the chorus stick-out from the verses around it; thus, giving the section more power.
Keep this in mind as you are revising your lyrics.
