Struggling with song structure of Rita Oras "Ritual"

Hi,

i try to analyze the song structure of Rita Ora her track "Ritual":



Regarding to this YouTube tutorial the common song structure for radio pop songs is:

So this means 68 bars in total which is at 115 BPM -> 2 minutes and 20 seconds... ok this is really too short for a song, isn't it?!

For me it's something like this:

Intro 4 Bars
Verse 16 Bars
Chorus 16 Bars
Verse 16 Bars
Chorus 16 Bars
Bridge 8 Bars
Chorus 16 Bars

Correct me if i'm wrong. Also are there any "pre's"?

How would the song look like if it were a "EDM tune"? Are just the part names different? "Drop", "break", ...?

No.

Or yes, depending on target market/function of song.

Tempo/duration etc in the commercial marketplace are partly determined by target market/demographics etc.




Look at the duration of every Beatles #1 hit (especially their early material) and you'll have evidence running counter to your statement.


The mean duration of the first sixteen #1 hits by the Beatles is...

2:20.
