Save The Best For Last?

What's a favourite song of yours that you wish would go on forever because the end/fade out is the best part?  Maybe it takes an unexpected twist or just has that killer chorus.

My pick is The Carpenters - 'Goodbye To Love', starts out like a show tune ballad and ends with a killer guitar solo and vocal harmony heaven, the last 60 seconds justifying their place in musical history.

    My pick is “Starstruck” by the 

    Kinks. I love the melody at the end of the song, and the backing vocals are great. “Starstruck” has a happy, pleasant & sincere vibe, and I would’ve loved to see a continuation of that feeling.

    Modest Mouse - Spitting Venom,  starts out kind of brash, but about midway through the tempo changes as though a victory and revelation, and concludes with a most incredible and hypnotic ending. Highly recommended.

  • Hi fellow Rock fan,

    My pick is Kitchen's of Distinction- Mad as Snow

    I chose that because it is a fairly short but highly effective song. Using the first premise on your question, this has a totally different ending to the main song that does go on for a long time, but personally I could zone out for a lot longer in it :)

    The songs you pick I notice have a good combination of the right stuff. The type that can cause some powerful emotions. I also liked your intro to it.

    Cheers Sad Eyed Lady.

    "Van Diemen's Land" - A solo performance sung by U2 guitarist The Edge. Nice song that starts fading out at 2 1/2 minutes for no apparent reason. More of this would have been a pleasure. From the CD Rattle and Hum.

    Foghat's "Dreamer" from the "Rock and Roll Outlaws" album. A great song that builds and builds to the cathartic guitar jam at the end... and then it fades within just a few seconds! Truly a case of musical satisfactus interruptus!

    “Pretty Maids All In A Row” - a Joe Walsh cut from the Eagles “Hotel California” album.  The harmonies at the end are awesome - too bad they can’t just keep on going.
