Butterfly - Weezer, Pinkerton

Only in Dreams - Weezer, Blue Album





I also like alot of Radiohead's strong endings, but not OK Computer. Mostly...


"Wolf At the Door" Hail to the Thief by Radiohead

"Motion Pitcure Soundtrack" off Kid A by Radiohead




"Take the Veil" from Deloused by The Mars Volta

The Ghosts of Saturday Night - Tom Waits / The Heart of Saturday Night

Oh, Sweet Nothin'! - The Velvet Underground / Loaded

Reservations - Wilco / Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

I like most of the songs mentioned here. I love album closers.


The first one that came to mind was Motion Picture Soundtrack. But then another brilliant one came to mind - You Can't Always Get What You Want. Let it Bleed is bookended by that and Gimme Shelter. Brilliant.


My next album might actually be called End Songs, and consist of all potential closers. It's just the way a lot of the songs are going.

Eyes of a Stranger - Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime

Blood Fire Death - Bathory - Blood Fire Death

Octavarium - Dream Theater - Octavarium

In the Presence of Enemies Pt II - Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos

Through the Ages - Bolt Thrower - The IVth Crusade
