favorites as in the way they close out the album, rather than favorite songs that happen to be the last tracks on their respective albums (because that list would require more thinking and i'm pretty much just going off the top of my head here). really, the only criteria i'm using to try and whittle down a short list of seven is songs that make me really hate the album is over:

sinners & saints - it's all coming down tonight

springsteen - jungleland

bouncing souls - gone

barenaked ladies - (this is where i'd put "tonight is the night i fell asleep at the wheel" if it wasn't for that godawful secret track marring what i consider to be a pretty awesome way to end an album. so instead i'm gonna go with "shoe box")

the first three clash albums end perfectly. yes, in that context even "train in vain" is still ok and not slightly overplayed.

ramallah - bye-bye

ducky boys - crumbling heart. moreso now since lind has left behind the nah nah nahs.


it should be noted that as some point the last song on live's distance to here album would have made a list like this for me, but 1) i'm already at 7 and did some kind of creative math to make it as seven anyway 2) if i think too much harder i'll probably come up with another 7 and 3) i can't even remember what the song is called, so it can't really be that wonderful.

2. The Cure - Untitled
3. R.E.M. - Find The River
4. Prince - Purple Rain
5. Love - You Set The Scene
6. Big Star - I'm In Love With A Girl
7. Nick Drake - From The Morning

8. Neil Young - Ambulance Blues
9. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - American Girl
10. Nirvana - All Apologies
11. Beck - Debra
12. The Flaming Lips - Bad Days
13. The Moody Blues - Nights In White Satin
14. Pink Floyd - Eclipse
15. The Who - Won't Get Fooled Again
16. Bon Iver - Re: Stacks
17. Animal Collective - Brothersport
18. Elliott Smith - Say Yes
19. The Zombies - Time of the Season
20. Titus Andronicus - The Battle of Hampton Roads

Songs I think close albums wonderfully:

1.) The National - Mr. November
2.) Nick Drake - From the Morning
3.) Bon Iver - Re: Stacks
4.) U2 - Love Is Blindness
5.) Tears for Fears - Start of the Breakdown
6.) The Cure - The Top (Damn them for one time not making the title track the closer "Disintegration" )
7.) Bruce Springsteen - Devil's Arcade (That album's book-ended pretty damn well)

This is an excellent choice. I considered including it, but "Terry's Song" technically closes the album, even if it is a bonus track. I was not sure as to the eligibility of "Devil's Arcade."

I may or may not compile my list later, but I just wanted to add that my favourite album closer this year is These Days by The Black Keys. Such a great way to end that record.
