Albums where the last song is the best

1. Sgt. Pepper’s (A Day in the Life)
2. The Bends (Street Spirit (fade out))
3. Speaking in Tongues (This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody))
4. John Henry by They Might Be Giants (The End of the Tour)
5. Z by My Morning Jacket (Dondante)
6. Bitter Tea by the Fiery Furnaces (Benton Harbor Blues, well, kind of)
EDIT: 7. Daisies of the Galaxy by Eels (Mr. E’s Beautiful Blues)

What else?

ps. like how I didn’t list who made Speaking in Tongues, because of course you already know it, just as well as you know Sgt. Pepper’s and The Bends?

If I wanted to do that, I’d put a nice photo and say “a personal appeal from Jimmy Wales.”

Maybe I’ll do that anyway!

How can you forget Rubber Soul (“Run for Your Life”)?

Dan -

Ooh, “Run for your life” is good. “Norwegian Wood” gives it a run for its money as the second best song on the album, but man, “In My Life” is on that album too.
