    Favorite Album Closers

    Thinking of whole albums viz jessey's thread, I tried to gauge the mood and atmosphere I most enjoyed and that would sustain me through those times high and low.  I had quite a few to select but arrived at DSOTM as the most complete expression of same.

    Dark Side also has, for me, one of the all-time best album codas in "Brain Damage/Eclipse" - tailor made for a good pair of headphones...

    Often overlooked, what are your favorite album codas/closing songs...the ones that are SO good that you hit the Repeat button...??

    A few more:

    Radiohead - "Street Spirit (Fade Out)" - The Bends
    Rolling Stones - "You Can't Always Get What You Want" - Let It Bleed
    Grateful Dead - "And We Bid You Good Night" - (asst'd live)
    My Morning Jacket - "Mahgeetah" - Okonokos (live)
    Black Crowes - "Descending" - Amorica
    My Bloody Valentine - "Soon" - Loveless


    ** P.S. I have my reasons for not choosing "Sgt. Pepper (reprise)/Day In The Life". **

    Re: Favorite Album Closers

    The Cure / "End" (Wish)
    Elton John / "Burn Down the Mission" (Tumbleweed Connection)
    REM / "Superman" (Life's Rich Pageant)
    Springsteen / "Jungleland" (Born to Run)
    Supertramp / "Child of Vision" (Breakfast in America)

    +1 for Brain Damage/Eclipse and The Last Resort

    I also omit Sgt. Pepper (and similarly Abbey Road) due to the extraneous noises that follow the 'good' ending songs.

    I mentioned this song in another context on a different thread, but apart from New York City Serenade -- which serves the same purpose on E Street Shuffle that Jungleland serves on Born to Run -- I like Don Maclean's Winterwood, off American Pie.

    i'll all for the whimsy of her majesty, but if it ended with "the love you take is equal to the love you make" into fade out there would be no contest.

    brain damage/eclipse damn near comes close, matty was right on with that one

    Bob Marley closes Uprising with Redemption Song and Exodus with One Love/People Get Ready. Excellent albums and closing songs.

    Kid next door is 16, and a year ago I played him Side Two of Abby Road. He flipped. Couldn't believe it was the Beatles. Borrowed it and I didn't see it for another six months.
    It really stands the test of time.
