2The Parts of a SongThere are 5 main parts of a song: The intro, the verse, the chorus, the bridge and the outro.The intro is when the song starts. It’s the introduction. The intro is normally like the verse or chorus, but without the lyrics. The intro usually lasts for about 4 to 8 bars. The intro is instrumental – just music.Each song has a story behind it. The verses tells that story. Each verse tells a part of the story which moves the song along. Each verse has the same background music, but the lyrics are normally different each time. Different types of music have different amounts of verses.The chorus basically tells the main message of the song and it’s always same each time in the song. The music and lyrics are same every time, but the chorus should be catchy otherwise the person who listens to the song will get very annoyed! Normally the title of the song is included in the chorus.The bridge is a small part of the song which only comes in one time in the entire song. It comes in after the second chorus and usually doesn’t last over 8 bars. It’s always different from the rest of the song. The bridge could be instrumental like a drum, guitar, piano or any instrument solo. It could also be a new lyrical part.The outro is the end of the song where the song could slowly end or could have a big ending, like a finale. Sometimes the chorus could be repeated 3, 4 or even more times for the outro.
