    Yeah, it's great but the album ends with effected studio chatter.

    The Doors agree.

    As far as The Beatles I think the name of that song relates more to, "And in THE END, the love you take is equal to the love you make" than their end.

    Re: Best FINAL track

    Without the hidden track on the end of Ten, I like Pearl Jam's "Release"

    Since I'm a big fan of the group and the album, Flogging Molly's "The Son Never Shines on Closed Doors" is an incredible end to the Drunken Lullabies album. Even how the song ends is perfect.

    On some versions. On the original UK vinyl, the laughing/chatter track was pressed into the runout groove, so that it would repeat infinitely until somebody stopped the turntable. On the American vinyls, though, they left this off and the album concludes with the piano chord. When things were digitized in the 80s, they included like 15 seconds or so of the studio chatter with a fadeout.

    Another interesting bit of trivia: the chord at the end of the song was originally planned to be sung rather than played on the piano, but they weren't happy with the sound.

    To clarify, this thread is confined to original LPs. I consider the runout a track since it was recorded and you can you know...hear it. You have a valid point though and if that chatter is considered the same as silent runout I might bump Day In The Life up to runner up status...it is great.

    As far as hidden tracks go, there are no hidden tracks on LPs...if you can hear it's there. So stuff that ended up on CDs doesn't count. Someone mentioned Pearl Jam's Ten album. Since it was released on LP when it was originally released that's the version to use.

    While there are some worthy contenders, this conversation really begins and ends with When the Levee Breaks, though.
    I gotta agree with Sig on this one. One of the first thoughts I had was T&S. The track/performance is full of youthful joy and emotion = the early Beatles. Yeah, sure, they didn't write it, but ask 100 people who sang, "Twist and Shout" and maybe, MAYBE 5% will say the Isley Bros.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Other than the fact that Master/Slave closes the album that's my definite vote. Might be my favorite song period. Seeing them open with that at Wrigley is my top musical moment and it isn't close.

    Other than that this thread is hard. I've moved so far into the mp3/Pandora/Satellite radio era I can hardly name 10 closing songs.

    In the other thread I added my favorite concert opener (mentioned here). So I'll continue the trend and say Yellow Ledbetter is my vote for concert closer. (even if it's starting to happen less often and I approve)

    If we assume an LP's "final audible content" is the official conclusion, I agree. To a typical listener, the run-out could be considered an afterthought, making "A Day in the Life" is the final track.

    To play devil's advocate with myself, does that make the coda to "Hello Goodbye" a separate song?

    I prefer "Strength" off of Let's Go Scare Al, but thumbs up on the Gear Gaddies reference.

    I'm the total opposite. I've always dug how the White Stripes threw a total curveball for the last track of every album. Sometimes it's kind of cheesy ("Your Southern Can is Mine" and "We Love One Another") but it's almost always catchy.

    "I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely Yet)" is the best song on "Get Behind Me Satan" and probably in my Top 10 White Stripes track.
