Unformatted text preview: beginning and act as a breaking point between the third time they played a verse and chorus. Last but not least, vocal is main in making the song because it conveys and describe the authors’ intentions. The Beatles started the song with a chorus, rather than a verse as seen in today’s songs.
However, it also seems that they begin some of their other songs with a chorus - perhaps this was a
common technique at the time. I choose to cail this part the chorus “can't buy me love, love..." because
it repeats throughout the entire song. In fact, it is played four times; the last time also serves as the fade

response to the previous two verses. This is also in the A—B-C format. However, line C is the same in all
verses. Before the song goes into a pattern of verse, chorus, verse, etc..., it added the element of

to the song. The song is then reinforced again with the chorus for the third time, repeats verse three, andis ready for a fade out. The fade out consist of nothing more but the reiterated chorus, yet it played out brilliantiy with the drum slam to let the audience know that the song has come to an end. Vern) 500A ...
