Verse, Chorus, Pre-Chrorus, Bridge, Middle 8, Coda… there are so many labels and names we can give to the parts of a song, and also to the song’s overal form, but I’ve often seen many musicians disagree on what exactly these terms mean, so I’m going through every common type of song structure and song part in an attempt to clear things up!

My video on The Beatles’ middle 8s: https://youtu.be/SkC_8wdzGn8?si=J4hIsc2FcSRU1PYE

The outro music to this video is my track "Clap" which you can hear in full on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/0wKKJoOZd8JQJDgGU8sb8V?si=dcs5zn4JRDO7oVCEkfK6YQ
