What 1 song is the best "last track" from any album. This doesn't mean the track that ranked highest on a billboard chart, sold the most, etc. Just the best song to wrap up an album.

my vote (and example);

"Eclipse" by Pink Floyd

Recently? I couldn't get enough of Outsiders, on Franz Ferdinand's 2nd album.

A few Tom Waits closers that always give me chills/closure:

- Anywhere I Lay My Head - off of Raindogs
- Fawn - instrumental that closes Alice...one of the most beautiful instrumentals I've ever heard
- The Day After Tomorrow - from Real Gone (this is ignoring the useless hidden track after it)

Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Iron Maiden on the Powerslave album, s**** EPIC!!!!
Also, Under the Sun off of Black Sabbath's Volume 4 is pretty bad ass!

I thought Her Majesty was the last track off Abbey Road? Granted it was originally just a hidden track after a bit of silence but every rerelease has treated it as it's own track.

As "Her Majesty" was only 23 seconds long I never really considered it a song...but I guess technically you're right, even though it is barely a snippet, it still counts as a track on the remaster.

Yeah sorry I was just nit picking, I consider The End the final track on Abbey Road as well.

Going to add another here.

Train In Vain (Stand By Me) by The Clash off of London Calling, which, while not even being listed on the album sleeve or the label on the record, got the most radio play of any song on that album.

"Rocket Queen" from GnR's Appetite for Destruction.

"Something in the Way" from Nirvana's Nevermind. The official last track on this cd. There is a hidden track after it on some pressings.

+1 - One of the best songs from my favourite album of all time.

They wrote it in one night, and recorded it the next. It was supposed to be for some giveaway with NME magazine, but that fell through, so they put it on the end of the album. However, the sleeve artwork had already gone to press.

How about "Seven Seas of Rhye" off of Queen II? Or one of my personal favorites, "Wind Up" from Jethro Tull's Aqualung?

One of my favourite albums of all time but one of my least favourite songs.
Someday, One Day would have been a WAY better ending.

Probably because Stevie Ray Vaughan did a way better version.
WHATEVER though.

The song grew more of a cult following for live shows than anything else...but I will agree with the ending the way you suggested it..Someday, One Day a much better finale.

Yeah that was a good episode and pretty much how I feel about a lot of music today, not all but lots of it.

But in all seriousness, SVR did an amazing job with Voodoo Child.

Oh speaking of modern music, if anybody likes The Sword, Ebethron from Age of Winters is a bad ass finale. Although in my most humble of opinions Lament for the Auroch would have been a better ender.
