    Default Songs With The Greatest Endings

    That moment when a song drifts away with a lovely ending, and everything is right in the world.

    +1 for Perfect Day, totally agree. The Hand That Rocks The Cradle and The Diamond Sea are great examples too. And ehh Zafocaine, Love Cats is a great song but the ending is nothing special.

    Yes, because the ending of a song is important. Much like for a movie or a book. Beginnings aren't nearly as crucial to make a good song great.

    The end of this song is the length of an entire song in itself, but the final 4 minutes make up possibly my favorite ending of all time. I can't even express what it's like to experience live...

    We can't all pick A Day In The Life, eh? The intro to a song can be just as crucial as the ending. For me, a good song intro would be LA Woman by the Doors. I pick these songs because they have pieces that stand out to me. As someone who writes music, I have a certain taste when it comes to intros/outros. I find it interesting that you criticize peoples preferences as if they can in any way be incorrect lol

    And another:



    This sort of falls into the category of Paul McCartney multi-songs. I enjoy music that takes you places.

    In the context of the song, the "shh shh shh shh" that is barely audible at the end is just so damn creepy and perfect.

    I don't play the drums, but when it builds to the solo, I must air drum.

    This reminded me of Science vs. Romance, which also has one of my favorite melodies. I love playing it on keyboard. Not necessarily the greatest ending, but memorable.

    Only a year prior to the Femmes first album and 4 years prior to Pixies. But I agree, I hear both in there.

    The Gun Club is a killer band, I'd highly recommend checking them out if you like punk, alt rock or blues.
