Top Ten Best Final Songs from Popular Artists

In the lives of musicians, life can end abruptly as hell. What do they leave the world with? Their final message; their swan song.

The Top Ten

1 (Sittin' On) the Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding
2 Free As a Bird - The Beatles

Maybe some people consider "The End" their last, or "I Me Mine" or something, but I consider this the final Beatles song, and it does a superb job at being so. - higgsboson2142

3 Mercedes Benz - Janis Joplin
4 The Show Must Go On - Queen
5 Hurt - Johnny Cash

Not the last song be Johnny Cash released, but the last one released in his lifetime. - higgsboson2142

6 Years Ago - Jimmie Rodgers
7 Louder Than Words - Pink Floyd

For a long time "High Hopes" was the final Pink Floyd song, but eventually The Endless River came out, with the death of Richard Wright, and I think it's a wonderful sendoff for the band. Sure the name Pink Floyd can move on, but it won't ever be the same. - higgsboson2142

8 I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive - Hank Williams
9 Horse to the Water - George Harrison

Sorry folks, it's "Horse To Water", not what's listed. - higgsboson2142

10 Milkcow's Calf Blues - Robert Johnson

The Contenders

11 Riders On the Storm - Jim Morrison
12 I'm Gonna Crawl - Led Zeppelin

The last song before John Bonham's tragic death. A sad song, really. It brings tears into my eyes. And it's done so WELL! Especially Plant's vocals. Beautiful! - MontyPython

13 You Know You're Right - Nirvana
