Assistant Professor of Music Theory, David Heetderks, has published an article in Music Theory Spectrum, a journal for the Society for Music Theory. His article, "Play with Closing Markers: Cadential Multivalence in 1960s Prechoruses and Related Schemas." It argues that the moment that the verse leads to a chorus in a 1960s pop song is often the most climactic in the song because it uses melody, text, and chords to create ambiguous boundaries.
