      First and foremost, you have your song’s framework. Depending on the genre you’re working with, you may wish to follow specific structure-related norms. Regardless, most songs will follow a pretty similar logic in terms of form. Verse / chorus / verse / chorus / bridge / chorus / chorus / chorus / chorus / chorus / chorus / chorus / chorus / chorus / chorus / chorus / chorus / chorus / chorus
      Your song will already have a solid foundation if you use that basic format that best songwriters do, but if you want to spice things up, you may add other elements. There might be an intro and/or an outro, for example. A pre-chorus and/or a post-chorus can be included. You can even go insane and ignore all structures. This last approach, however, is more riskier than the others and should only be utilized if you are familiar with common song structure styles. Your music will become more cohesive and develop momentum at the correct times if it has a decent structure.
