The dead stop of I Want You (She's So Heavy) where the tape was simply cut has to be up there as does the chrashing piano chord of A Day In The Life.

Im Only Sleeping with that glorious guitar fade out.

Helter Skelter with Ringo's complaint of having blisters on his fingers.

And the Get Back version with Johns audition quote, admittedly not part of the actual song but really fits when listened to as part of the Let It Be album - maybe that belongs more in the album closure thread then.a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

On the Rubber Soul thread, BenefitOfMisterkite mentioned "Wait"

Always loved the ending of that song: "I'm    so    alone...." - the guitars tumble down and then the rustling of the cymbals

(or other percussion instrument)

I love the ending of Twist And Shout.  Rising chromatically from A7 to D7 and ending on a D7/9. The endings of some early songs were great.

Cant remember if its been mentioned already but Long, Long, Long when Paul hits the low note that sends the bottle rattling which brings George, Ringo and Paul back in. Totally unplanned but fits the song perfectly.

The Isley Brothers version of Twist And Shout had a fade out ending.

Well then kudos to the Beatles for the ending of "Twist And Shout" - definitely better than a fade out.

Along the same lines, "Please Please Me" has a very climactically satisfying ending.

Definitely I Want To Tell You! I love Paul's little ad-lib harmony thing at the fade! Cry, Baby, Cry maybe....

This!

That is to say that I agree.

I've always thought a lot of the songs on Revolver end in interesting and unexpected ways. The totally sudden, terse, solemn ending of Eleanor Rigby. I'm Only Sleeping ends beautifully if you ask me, with the heavy HISS of cymbals giving way to a weird dreamy flurry of backwards guitar that fades out. She Said She Said goes rhythmically into double time for the last couple of lines. And Your Bird Can Sing, with that riff looping over and over and then suddenly coming to a musically unresolved halt and there's a little thrum from Paul's bass at the end, like "Oh, are we stopping?" Good Day Sunshine's random key change right at the end. For No One just trails off with those two last sad notes from the horn. Paul doing that cool Eastern cadenza in the vocal harmony at the end of I Want To Tell You.

Another ending that I really love is Happiness Is A Warm Gun. The cheesy doo-wop vocals end: "is a warm gun yeeeaaaah," and the band finish... then a little bit of guitar feedback hums in... and then Ringo kills it dead with one last snare shot. Always thought that was cool for some reason.

EDIT: Forgot the snorts of derisive laughter at the end of Within You Without You. Always found that sort of creepy as a kid.

So far, all good ones (I still dislike Bip Bop, though. blue-meanie)

Strawberry Fields Forever has an ending I like. The fake fade-out, then it comes back in with that... stuff (I don't know what was used to make those sounds) and, of course, "cranberry sauce."

If you're lonely (or not!), you can talk to me. .....Hey! Are you a new member on this fine forum and don't know where to go to introduce yourself? Well, you can do it here! Dig it?
