In most cases when writing a song, the chorus will feature the title or at least the main line. The word or words that will stick in the listeners head even when the song is over.
But, where to you put the title line? At the beginning of the chorus or at the end?
Well, either option can work. However, deciding between putting the main line at the beginning or at the end can greatly impact how the message gets across to the listeners. Let’s take a look:
When you put the title line at the beginning of the chorus, you tell the audience just by the placement of the line that this is important. That of all the lyrical lines in the chorus, the first one is the most important. Plus, putting the title line at the beginning of the chorus allows you to repeat it if necessary throughout the rest.
Saving the title line for the end doesn’t give you the luxury of repeating it as much as if you were to put it in the beginning. However, it makes interest grow because you create suspension by saving the line (the punch) for the end. Just be sure you don’t drag it out so much that people forget it is the chorus.
Try both and see how you song works!
