Kite
The Fly
I Will Follow
Electric Co
Discotheque
Vertigo
Beautiful Day
Mercy
One Tree Hill
Running to Stand Still

Songs like Bad, AIWIY don't have choruses in my mind, all though the 'sha la la la de days' in Running only just count.

i think the "let it go, and so to fade away...I'm wide awake..." part in 'bad' is a chorus. it repeats, it comes after the verses, the song builds to it..

No I think it is a climax, but not a chorus.

I feel choruses need a more down beat lyric and melody before stepping up, whilst in Bad whe song rises to this point gradually before dropping back down sharply straight after.

Its tough to describe in words.
