The word strophic comes from the ancient greek word "strophe" which means to twist or turn. In musical composition, strophic (also called strophic form) refers to music in which every verse or chorus is sung to the same refrain. This is also called "verse-repeating" or "chorus form". Most modern pop songs are strophic, following a common A A A B verse/chorus repeating refrain. "Through-composed" is the opposite of strophic form in which new music is created for each verse and chorus.<br>
