When you listen to music composed in the last 50 years, do you listen for musical form?  For example, many popular songs follow a complex verse-chorus form, where you hear verses alternating with choruses, with other sections, like the bridge, or an introduction/conclusion thrown in.

How can listening for form help shape your musical experience?
