Top 10 Songs With the Best Ending

The Top Ten

1 A Day in the Life - The Beatles A Day in the Life - The Beatles Cover Art

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.

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.

The end cord/note made history

Never could be any other way!

2 November Rain - Guns N' Roses November Rain - Guns N' Roses Cover Art

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

That ending is unparalleled. The piano and vocals are in perfect sync while Slash plays a guitar solo for the ages. It's truly a work of art.

3 My Love, My Life - ABBA My Love, My Life - ABBA Cover Art

Still agape every time I hear it

can't overlook the vocal ending

4 Hotel California - Eagles Hotel California - Eagles Cover Art

This song is amazing

5 One - Metallica One - Metallica Cover Art

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.

That headbang part at the end is legit! But, very sad theme.

Not the best metallica ending bu a great one

Hands Down... This Song Has Taken My Soul

6 The Bluest Blues - Alvin Lee The Bluest Blues - Alvin Lee Cover Art

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

10 Life's Been Good - The Eagles Life's Been Good - The Eagles Cover Art

Would love to see Joe Walsh and Alvin Lee play a duo

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!
