Is the line or lines that are repeated in music or in verse; the "chorus" of a song.

Originality, impact, recognition, variation and coherence in the phrase.

Examples:

- Another Brick In The Wall part. 2
- We Are The Champions
- (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
- Smells Like Teen Spirit
- Twist And Shout
- Oh Pretty Woman
- Layla
- Sunshine Of Your Love
- Money For Nothing
- Black Hole Sun
- Paradise City
- Under The Bridge
- Symphony Of Destruction
- Hotel California
- Come As You Are
- Creep (STP)
...

I'll put the best list in this comment
thanks!

I thought that the refrain was different from the chorus. But I don't see how it's possible to rank either objectively.

The decibel level that drunk people sing it would be the greatest way.
