The Top 10 Greatest Chorus Effect Recordings of All Time


The Top 10 Greatest Chorus Effect Recordings of All Time

... Jeffrey McAlack/Sourceaudio:

Let’s talk about chorus. Not the section of a pop song where the whole band steps up to the microphone and shouts the same five words over and over again, I’m talking about the chorus that comes out of a stompbox. Back in the 80s and 90s, no working guitar player would set foot on stage without his or her trusty Boss CE-2, Electo-Harmonix Small Clone, or MXR Micro-Chorus. The beautiful shimmering modulation of a good chorus pedal adds life to clean guitar signal or an army of three-dimensional depth and popping overtones to an overdriven tone - long live the chorus pedal.

And now, after hours and hours of extensive research, I’ve taken it upon myself to come up with what I believe to be the definitive rank order list of great songs that use the otherworldly effect we call “chorus.:

1. The Police – Walking On the Moon

2. Nirvana – Come As You Are

3. U2 – I Will Follow

4. Daft Punk – Get Lucky

5. Jaco Pastorius – Continuum

6. Rush – Spirit of Radio

7. The La’s – There She Goes

8. The Red Hot Chili Peppers – Mellowship Slinky in B Major

9. Metallica – Welcome Home (Sanitarium)

10. Boston – More Than A Feeling
