Song Building Blocks

Songs use a number of common sections. These sections are the building blocks of songs. When discussing song form these sections are assigned letters as labels, but you will be more familiar with their names such as verse, chorus and bridge.

This article looks at the common sections, what defines them, and how those sections work together to form a working, popular song.

This was a very comprehensive article on song structure. Nicely written. And unless I missed this somewhere on the page, if there is room to expand upon this article I would add an explanation of a "Breakdown section," which does differ from a Bridge or Instrumental Interlude in that instruments will tend to not only get quieter and play more sparsely, but some will usually drop out completely, and in live renditions it is sometimes the part of the song in which the singer talks to the audience. Great article though. Kevin Thomas
