MickyMan what is your favourite chorus song? (78* d) RE: Longer choruses feel the best? 16 Jan 04

Wow... Country Life. That one also sticks in my head as #1 after reading down the thread through about a hundred. How about Five Foot Flirt. I believe it's by Cyril Tawney[sic]? I don't know about the rest of you, but there seems to be a strange dynamic that exhibits itself in the singing of chorus songs....People like LONG CHORUSES BEST, but they need to have people around who can sing with them. There's a great feeling of accomplishment when you've learned the words and tune to a real long one, and a real charge when you find out that other people know it too. I'll bet that in the days before recordings and general literacy this must have been a compounded charm. All the learning had to happen in groups of at least two. Anyway, there seem to be lots of long choruses in older songs.
