    HUGE POP/ROCK CHORUSES

    I'm hook, line, and sinker for a big chorus in any rock or pop tune. A great example is the fist pumping, "Ready to Go" by Republica. I loved Saffron in these days. So cute.

    Ready to Go is good. Stupid Girl by Garbage - reminded me of someone I dated.

    Since first seeing the "I'm Only Happy When It Rains" video, I would go down on Shirley Manson so hard I'd give her an aneurism.

    Now you've stumped me. I don't recall that tune.


    Here's one of the true rousing choruses in rock:

    Can't tell Prince wrote this one, huh? Susanna Hoffs is unbelievably beautiful.

    Some of these might not be the most detailed of all time but most of them get you singing the chorus. (And yeah some are rather formula )

    ^All great tunes, Beerfish.

    It won't embed, but "Mungo City" by Space Hog has a very catchy chorus. (I will now be singing it for the next three hours.) Double click and listen on YouTube.

    If for no other reason than to look at the mesmerizing Paz Lenchantin, I wish Zwan had clicked. Again, the jerkoffs won't allow embedding, so check out the songs--and Paz--by double clicking to YouTube. She is so adorable.

    Staying with the chick power-pop theme, Veruca Salt:

    Muse has some really anthemic choruses:

    Franz Ferdinand, Brit-pop at its best imho:

    Duran Duran was a very talented band before they became a teeny-bopper magnet. Just listen to John Taylor's baselines and Roger Taylors stickwork on "Rio":

    ^ Thanks for posting "Volcano Girls". You beat me to it. I loved Louise Post from that era.

    Not sure why so many have chicks, but this chorus is massive. Amy Lee can belt it.
