It usually gos between two major sections like the chorus and the solo, usually like a small interlude sort of. It basically bridges the gap between two sections.

when you have a section, usually slower, that isn't a verse, chorus, or solo, and usually comes between the second chorus and the solo, then that is the bridge. it is also known as the middle 8, as it is usually 8 bars and is usually around about the middle of the song.

I always considered 'the section' between the verse and chorus and reoccurs to be the bridge. The middle 8 is usualy a key change or entirely differnet section later, possibly after the solo for contrast.

well, it's all down to how you look at it in modern music: most traditional rules are broken all the time nowadays, so the traditional sense of a middle 8 being a key change over 8 bars doesn't really apply anymore, it depends more on the context of the song. if you have a mental 20 minute song with millions of sections then you will have several bridges and middle 8's that serve traditional purposes and breakdowns etc as well. on the other hand, in a modern popular music song that's only 3 minutes long, the difference between a middle 8 and a bridge isn't going to be massive, so it's up to the listener/transcriber to decide which best suits it.
