Songs With the Best Ending

The Top Ten

1 A 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

The end cord/note made history - ekos

Never could be any other way!

2 My Love, My Life - Abba

can't overlook the vocal ending - ekos

Still agape every time I hear it

3 November Rain - Guns N' Roses

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.

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

4 Hotel California - Eagles

This song is amazing

5 The Bluest Blues - Alvin Lee

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

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

Hands Down... This Song Has Taken My Soul

Not the best metallica ending bu a great one

8 The March of the Black Queen - Queen
9 Life's Been Good - The Eagles

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

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!

10 Karn Evil 9 - Emerson, Lake and Palmer

By far the most exciting climactic ending to any song ever.. SEE THE SHOWW

Just... Epic.

The Contenders

11 Starless - King Crimson
12 Sweet Home Chicago - The Blues Brothers

Great cover and ending to the song from the legendary Robert Johnson - some may not think of these guys as a real band but they played live and the band had professional musicians - ekos

13 Suite: Judy Blue Eyes - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

WOW. Ending, just really catchy.

14 Floods - Pantera

That ending is so beautiful

15 Jealousy - Billy Fury

Dramatic and passionate with really orchestral notes and strong snare drum at the end amazing ending

16 Crazy on You - Heart
17 Fly Me to the Moon - Frank Sinatra
18 Under Pressure - Queen
19 Hammer to Fall - Queen
20 New Kid In Town - The Eagles
21 Time Has Come Today - Chambers Brothers
22 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
23 Dogs - Pink Floyd

Best ending ever

Who was dragged down, by the stone.

This is my favorite ending to any pink floyd song, and it deserves to be way higher. - Kyledren

24 I Want You (She's So Heavy) - The Beatles
25 Soul Man - The Blues Brothers

Haha love these endings! Like Rumour Has It by Adele should be on here

26 Chiquitita - ABBA
27 The Little Things Give You Away - Linkin Park
28 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath
29 Helter Skelter - The Beatles

I GOT BLISTERS ON MY FINGERS!

30 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
31 Valley of the Damned - Dragonforce

Purely orgasmic! Listen to it once and you'll know. sadly it comes from an underrated band.

32 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest
33 Atom Heart Mother Suite - Pink Floyd
34 Rumour Has It - Adele

After the line that twists the song, "But rumour has it he's the one I'm leaving you for" there's a big dramatic gorgeous piano riff that just finishes it off so brilliantly

35 Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers

How is this not on the list? Like seriously, the outro is incredible

36 Little House I Used to Live In - Frank Zappa
37 Terrible Lie - Nine Inch Nails
38 This Is Who We Are - As I Lay Dying
39 Lovers - Jackie Evancho

The final acapella line "Your voice still echoes...In my heart" is a total heartbreaker.

40 Just - Radiohead
41 Piano Man - Billy Joel
42 Wet Sand - Red Hot Chili Peppers
43 Dream On - Aerosmith
44 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

Wow, that riff tone change is amazing, setting another dark and somber air to the song. Master Iommi is one of a kind!

45 A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd

Never has the ending of a song been as powerful as this one. The song progresses from chaos to order, from disaster to perfection, from ugliness to beauty. The organ sends shivers across your body, yet it also sets a happy mood. The vocals lifts your soul from your body. That is only the sudio version. The version from Pompeii has David Gilmore's vocals. There, he makes one of the most amazing sounds a human being has ever made. It is a true masterpiece, a work of beauty. Never again will a combination of noises ever come together like that.

46 Maggie May - Rod Stewart

Gives me chills every time.

47 The End - The Beatles
