Burn Down the Mission - Tumbleweed Connection 

Good call.... though it isn't even one of my favorites from this incredible album - those would be Ballad of A Well-Known Gun, Amoreena, Son Of Your Father and My Father's Gun. Hookfoot made an incredible backup band for Elton.

The End, Abbey Road

 

 

 

 

A classic, to be sure, and one heck of a way to close out your recording career as a band IMO... but technically, is it really the closer? Some might consider the closer on Abbey Road to be Her Majesty... ;)

The Beatles did it three times with "Tomorrow Never Knows", "A Day in the Life", and "Her Majesty".

"Won't Get Fooled Again",

"Brain Damage/Eclipse" (Eclipse was already mentioned but I consider these two to be a single song).

"Are You Experienced",

"Brothers in Arms" (even though it's not the best song on the album it's the perfect song to end with),

"I Am a Rock",

"You Can't Always Get What You Want".

Glad I thought of this in time to edit. "Moving in Stereo"

But the album closes with "Her Majesty" 

That's more like a hidden track and not part of the sequencing of the album. 

I wouldn't consider "Endless Nameless" to be the last track on Nirvana's Nevermind or "Disgustipated" to be the last track on Tool's "Undertow" for the same reason.  

But if you do consider Her Majesty to be the closing track of Abbey Road, then maybe the endless loop ("never could be any other way") is the final track of Sgt. Pepper's instead of Day in the Life.
