Welcome to the world of Barbershop Tags!

Tag (Definition):

A Tag, in barbershop music, is the last section of the song. Its rough analog in Classical music is a coda.
Tags are characterized by a heightening of the dramatic tension of the song, frequently including a hanger, or posted note.
In addition, good Tags can be sung as short, stand-alone works. Tags may be soft and tender but are typically characterized by loud, "paint peeling," ringing chords. According to the competition rules of the Barbershop Harmony Society, every song entered for a competition must have a Tag.  Retrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tag_(Barbershop)," 09/07/2008.
