Songs With the Best Ending


The Top TenXW

1A Day In the Life - The Beatles

Forty second-long chord that made history. I can only imagine what folks were thinking, sitting at their record players in 1967. It's amazing how big of an impact it has on me. Actually, the only thing that's amazing is the fact that it amazes me.

simply the best ending for the last song on a revolutionary album like sgt pepper

Heck yea! Nightmearish orchestra and then, a whole orchestra, 2 sec pause plays the same note for about 30 seconds. The you wait about 10 sec and you hear some people talking.

2My Love, My Life - ABBA

can't overlook the vocal ending - ekos

Still agape every time I hear it

3Hotel California - EaglesV1 Comment
4Funk # 49 - Joe Walsh - The Eagles - 1977
5The Bluest Blues - Alvin Lee

Alvin Lee (played with Ten Years After) - one fast axman, one of the fastest from the 70's - ekos

6B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down
7One - Metallica

The song start off very slow and somber, and as it goes along it picks up pace until it eventually evolves into a madhouse of shredding guitars and thundering drums. After a four-minute-long face-melting solo the song charges full-force towards the end for a few seconds, and then slams to a stop with the brutality of a high-speed car accident - a perfect contrast to the gentle, calm vibes of the intro. Nothing short of amazing.

8The March of the Black Queen - Queen
9November Rain - Guns N' Roses

Whoa! It was at #12. My vote made it #10.
But where it deserves to be is #1
Greatest guitar solo ever at the climax.
Slash is not like God... He IS God
Only wish Guns N' Roses remained the same

10Life's Been Good - The Eagles

They really messed up with the wah wah version. Am I the only one who knows the "Uh oh. Here comes a flock of wah wahs" I KNOW I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS!
