What's best album ending song????

Maybe you're bored with threads like that, but i'm going to make your life harder, you'll have to think!!!(just kidding)
Soooo, what's your best album ending song??
My vote goes to THE WANDERER, without that crazy sound at the end of it, after 30 sec silence.
You might disagree, but i don't know what is so special about Mothers of dissappeared(i don't get what's the song about at all)
and All i want is you is great, great song, but it would be better without that 1.5 minute solo at the end.

I'm with "Mothers Of The Disappeared," personally. I love the evocative musical accompaniment to what I think is one of Bono's more powerful lyrics. I love the vocals, too...this song has always found a way to profoundly touch me.

I need to give props to "The Wanderer" and "Love Is Blindness," though. Also WONDERFUL songs. And I think that "Shadows And Tall Trees" is one of the best out there, too. There it is.

All I Want Is You is the best closing song, but Love is Blindness is the best closer in terms of album mood.

Love Is Blindness is a great song, but I love MLK.

I also love All I Want Is You, but it doesn't seem to be similar to the other "last songs".

Love is Blindness gets my vote. Dark & sexy: a good snapshot of the whole Achtung Baby album.

'mlk'--it's beautiful, haunting and other-worldly. a gorgeous lullaby to one of the bravest souls that has graced our planet.

perfect ending to the perfect album.

Yes it is, unless you think The Ground Beneath Her Feet is the official closer to ATYCLB.

Oh, and I can't choose a favourite closer. I love them all. U2 are masters at brilliant closers and it's just too hard to rank them. I think if I were forced to choose ... I would refuse.

I love All I want is You. It kind of sticks out on Rattle and Hum, not exactly the best way to sum up that album, IMO, but I love it nonetheless.

Mothers of the Disappeared....

It's a great ending just based on the theme of the whole album.

For me it's definately the Wanderer. Gawd, the brilliant song to brilliantly end a brilliant album.

All I Want Is You is one of my top 5 songs, and the minute or two at the end of it is what makes it a great closer! IMHO
It goes from Edge rocking out to this soothing, hypnotic rhythm. Gotta love it.

Second Place: MLK

Mothers Of The Disappeared - an emotional end to an album full of them.

I gotta say, though, that I really dig Yahweh.
