Top 10 Songs that Start with the Chorus

Metal_Treasure
The songs on this list have non-standard structures because the most common song structure is this:
Verse
Chorus

Verse
Chorus

(Bridge
Solo)

Chorus

You see it's "normal" to end the song with the chorus but not to start it with the chorus.
However, some great songs start with the chorus. Enjoy!
