Analyzing song structure

Endless

This video I made shows the different sections in the structure of Fox Stevenson’s song Endless.

Endless has a semi complicated structure.

It starts with an intro that is essentially the same as the outro with more instruments layered in. 2 verses lead into the chorus that lead into the drop.

The drop is broken up into 2 similar, yet slightly different parts.

This brings us back to the chorus for a bit then into drop 2.

Drop 2 has 3 parts, Drop 2 A (a pitched up layered version of Drop 1 A), Drop 2 B a new section, and Drop 2 C a edited version of drop 2B.

This leads into Verse 3 then into a Change.

This heads into the bridge then back into 2 A, 2B, and 2c.

Then it ends with the outro.

Here is the break down of the song’s times
