What are some bridges you wish came a thousand times in a song? I love bridges, but of course they only sadly come once or maybe twice. Mine are This One by Whitecross, True Confessions by Tonio K., No Way I'm Going Down by Whitecross, The Lion's Den by Guardian, & the words to Petra's bridge in Fools Gold, are amazing. 

Now, mine all happen to be Christian Rock but obviously they don't have to be. I love bridges---:P

I love a good bridge / pre-chorus, often more than the chorus. 

The best of all time, though, absolutely has to be this;

Quoted for truth. That is probably literally the best ever recorded. 

Another one I'd put in the top three of all time;

Still remember Mike Portnoy stating that   they would have never release my all time favorite DT tune with my all time favorite bridge... Good luck, Mike Portnoy with your latest DT clone with that lousy Bruce Dickinson falsetto... :lol::lol::lol:

These are more pre-choruses, rather than "Bridgesss". A couple more featuring the great Vivian Campbell. The solo on "Firedance" is perfection also.

I always thought a pre chorus was the section between the verse and the chorus, hence the name. Whereas a bridge was the middle section in a song connecting the beginning and the end, hence the name.

That's the part I've been noticing in the songs you're posting.

They are essentially the same thing. I was just being pedantic. I would say a pre chorus is a type of bridge connecting the verse to the chorus, but a bridge doesn't necessarily have to be before a chorus.

Here's a couple of examples of what I consider bridges followed by another Roxus track with a great pre chorus. How "Body Heat" never made it to the album I will never know.

Best bridge ever is in Warrant’s I Saw Red just before the solo.

”I’ve been hurt and I’ve been blind....”

I love a great bridge and this one is what I define as a great bridge.

i like the one in This One by Whitecross ~This One gave all of heavens glory for you~ & Tonio K.'s True Confessions. The melody is better than the words though.

Another great pre chorus. I think being a Lead Vocalist/Drummer has got to be incredibly difficult. You could get away with it in the studio, but live is another story. I've never seen Von Groove live, but it would be interesting.
