I'm loving that song right now...probably listened to it half a dozen times today.

Great songs never go out of fashion.

Here's a theory.

When Tony looks up to see Meadow walk in, that was the last thing he sees. Then there's the blackout.

The guy from the bathroom comes out and shoots Tony in the head and Tony blacks out. Hence, there's your ending. Tony gets whacked, but it's implied by the blackout.

Yeah, that's a popular theory, that the abrupt blackness was Tony's death. It ties back to the conversation he had with Bobby when they were at his lake house, about how you don't see it coming and it's just nothing ... or whatever it was they said about dying.

Just to add to my point:

Because of the five-second blackout, the viewer gets to actually feel what it was like for Tony to get whacked

I drive by Holstens in Bloomfield every day going to and from work.

I will forever get chills passing by Holstens everyday.

I also pass by the Bada Bing every now and then on Route 17 in Lodi. That place is actually called Satin Dolls, FYI.

Wasn't there an episode (I think either season 5 or season 6 Part I) when Tony and Carmela were talking about high school and/or when they first started going out, and this song was mentioned? Or am I thinking of another?

Can't you just see Tony taking Carm to a Journey concert back in the day?

Agreed. But if they do show Tony getting a bullet in the head; that's the end of the story, ie no possibility of a movie. This way, they have "closure" if they can't get the actors to do a movie, and an out if they can.

Personally, I think they should have wacked Tony, let us see it; but the rest (Chris, Sil, Bobby, even the NYC boss) should have all lived and they could have done a spin off of Chris' rise to power. The actor who plays Chris has said he would do the Sopranos forever.

a little blurb from tmz.com

'Sopranos' Creator to Fans -- Take That Ending and Shove It

"Sopranos" creator David Chase doesn't see what all the fuss is -- about the ending to the mob drama. He tells the Star-Ledger of New Jersey that he has "no interest in explaining, defending, reinterpreting, or adding to what is there," concerning the final scene, which had fans aghast with its ambiguity and abruptness, going to black for five full seconds after building up. "We did what we thought we had to do," says Chase, and he definitely didn't design the ending to work into a possible movie. The cast, meanwhile, at a viewing party for the show, said that they didn't know which ending would end up being used, but didn't comment on it beyond that.

i do remember when Carm had that brief ... not even a fling, just a lusy kiss with that hunky plumber in Season 2, the song at the end of that show was "wheel in the sky."

which was so friggin' perfect i couldn't stand it.

can't you see an early 80s Tony and Carm at some summer carnival while that song plays in the background? or at, like, Action Park or whatever that super dangerous Jersey water park (that i had a great time at, once) that's now closed was called?

Carmella's brief "affairs" (I'm still a bit disappointed Furio never came back.)
