Popular songs often follow one of the traditional song forms, or one of the song forms that are derived from one of the traditional song forms. These music forms are generally made up of a number of sections that may or may not be repeated with the same song. As this article is focused on providing a basic understanding of AABA Song Form in the modern era, some root musical forms or classifications of musical forms have only been referenced for completeness.

It should be noted that the meaning of some terms, such as "verse", has not always meant the same as it's current commonly understood meaning. During the period from the s to the s, many songs used lengthy introductions that wandered around before leading into Bar, AABA structured songs. Just to confuse everyone, these long introductions are called "the verse". To add to the confusion, the complete bar AABA form is known as "the chorus".

For the purpose of this article we will use modern terminology, where each A section is a verse in the modern understanding of "verse".
The American popular song form derives from a long history of European folk song, theater music, and light opera, and was modified in America by Broadway musicals, African American folk songs, the blues , and other musics. The B section of these songs is called the bridge or the release, or the channel , and its words, melody, and harmony contrast to the A sections. Popular song forms can also be divided into 4-bar phrases , and they may be , , or bars long. In earlier times popular songs were divided into two parts, the verse whose words set the scene for what was to come and whose melody was freer and nonrepetitive and the refrain whose words and melody were usually repeated with small variations in every chorus. By the late s the verse had begun to be dropped in performance, and by the s it was not even written as part of the song, turning songs into vignettes whose titles were often repeated as a "hook" " Blue Moon ," for example, or " It Might as Well Be Spring " , leaving only the refrain. The words, melody, and harmonic structure of popular songs all function together to continually recycle back to the beginning to repeat again.
