What's your favorite/the best ending to a song?


A Day in the Life- The Beatles
That amazing orchestral rising concerto with that spectacular final note, I don't think there has ever been a better finale to a song ever.

What about you?

The ending of this David Allan Coe hit will always be a classic because of the last verse.

Two Who songs:

Baba O'Riley

Best usage of violin in a rock song, outside of the usual slower, symphonic use in the usual ballads.

Won't Get Fooled Again

Also one of the earliest and best rock screams.

Over the Hills and Far Away, after the other instruments and Plant fade away you're left with JPJ and his lonely harpsichord in what sounds like Westminster Abbey at 3 a.m. Page fessed up in an interview that what sounds every bit like a steel at the very end is also JPJ multiracked on a monophonic synth.

Zep

Hard to argue with A Day in the Life, but I really like the ending to NIN - Closer

Love the Over the Hills and Far Away call.

I just read somewhere - didn't know this yet - that one of the guys from LZ later went on to direct a choir in England. Pretty sure it was JPJ.

Verbal endings? REK - "The Road Goes on Forever"

Last verse is kinda cool.
