Hello, anon! I’m glad you asked this because I think it’s something that a lot of people have been wondering, since “Go Down Singing” doesn’t completely follow the traditional structure of a pop song, which is something like this:
This is the type of song structure we’re all the most familiar with as it’s the most common. However, “Go Down Singing” seems to follow a variation of this format:
Some people, myself included because I am totally untrained in this matter, refer to the bridges in the above example as a pre-chorus, thus making the section between the final two choruses the “bridge.” Obviously, there’s no third chorus in “Go Down Singing,” but there is a reprise of the first part of the pre-chorus, which, to me, indicates the bridge as the preceding bit (Eyes on me/Wait and see…).
However, since Michelle, Tyler, and Theo are trained professionals, it could also be referring to the pre-chorus, since it’s also referred to as a bridge. So the short answer is, I don’t really know but I’ve narrowed it down. If I had to guess, though, I’d say, based on content and structure, it’s the bit after the second chorus. But again, that would only be a guess.
One of my favorite write ups on the subject is this article from Ethan Hein’s blog. There’s a lot of great information there, as well as some visual representations of various song structures. It’s an excellent read and, if you find it informative, you should explore his blog further. There’s some fantastic information over there.
Hope that helps, anon! Keep being excellent!
