Songs with the best endings
So we've had a thread with the best opening riffs, here's one with the best endings. I'm interested to see if somebody else puts up what I think is the best ending to a song. Here's an example, I think the last 15 seconds or so of this R.E.M. song is great.

Baba O'Reilly has to be up there with the best.

Shocking twist at the end

Thin Lizzy had some great song endings. Chinatown and Waiting For An Alibi spring to mind.

There's possibly mileage in another thread for 'songs which turn into a completely different song'. Layla and I Am The Resurrection are obvious examples.

Suspicious Minds by Elvis with its false fade out

Hey Jude...though a long 'ending'

The last minute of the 12" version of Sister Surprise by Gary Numan is brilliant.

Malarkey 15-03-2019 09:11 AM

"Perhaps Vampires......" by Arctic Monkeys where you think it's finished but it isn't.

The end of Radiohead's 'National Anthem' sounds like a massive punch up. Love it.

Love You More - The Buzzcocks
EMI-Sex Pistols

Down in the sewer- The Stranglers

I love the closing run of this song and especially the last chord everybody hits at 3:35.

If you like Mandolins and don't mind a wee bit of goth then the rather excellent and unique track 'Mask' (1982) by Bauhaus is something worth definitely discovering.

To get the full effect listen from the beginning though.

Trust me you weren't have heard anything like it. I first heard it on release and still listen to it today.

Any Nick Cave song. The ending is always a massive relief

JJ 25-03-2019 08:28 PM

Always liked the end of Too Much Too Young by The Specials:

"Ain't you heard of the starving millions?
Ain't you heard of contraception?
D'you really want a program of sterilization?
Take control of the population boom
It's in your living room
Keep the generation.... gap
Try wearing a cap!"

JJ 26-03-2019 05:33 AM

Also like the end of Turning Japanese by The Vapors.

chrisophiex 26-03-2019 08:54 AM

I’m not that keen on Vienna by Ultravox but the ending is much better than the rest of the song.

KYLIE MINEAGLE 26-03-2019 08:59 AM

Well I'm not the world's most masculine man
But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man

So is Lola. Lo lo lo Lola.

crystaljim 26-03-2019 09:12 AM

Satellite Of Love - sublime ending.

Joe85 26-03-2019 09:17 AM

Kaiser Chiefs - Angry Mob


Percy Dalton 26-05-2019 08:01 AM

Isley Brothers - Behind a painted smile

Funk Butter 03-09-2019 03:24 PM

The correct answer, for me, is the end of "Time" by Pink Floyd.

Don-Donovani 17-10-2019 05:43 PM

For me, the last minute of Fleetwood Mac's Oh Well (pt 1), is am elegant coda. Pt 2 is a fine continuation of the theme

Could easily have been written for a Western film.

If we are talking Floyd then comfortably numb does it for me

chrisophiex 21-11-2019 10:46 PM

I am the resurrection - Stone Roses

The ending that just keeps on giving.

Bovril Dan 27-11-2019 08:00 AM
