Best Songs Endings

We’ve all come to cherish the song endings of most songs because they leave this ecstatic feeling of wanting more; as though you’ve not had enough. Besides the climax of songs, song endings are what people cherish the most because that’s the last part your brain captures and keeps repeating whenever you long to hear them again.

That’s why choruses are used as most song endings. Millions of songs are available out there; however, what are the best song endings? Yeah! We all want the best of everything and likewise in songs, we all want to feel euphoric with the bliss that song endings bring.

Therefore, in this article, we’ll consider some of the best song endings of all time. Prepare to be overwhelmed by the nostalgia these songs’ endings will bring!

1. “I Remember” by A Day To Remember

A Day To Remember - I Remember (Audio)

This song has over nine minutes of playing time. The first four minutes are composed of strong pop mosh music by A Day to Remember. This song encompasses all of the captivating memories that can be experienced during a life spent travelling.

When I heard this song for the first time, what struck me most was how much emotion was packed into such a seemingly straightforward statement as “I remember.” Even though the first half of this track is an excellent song in and of itself, the second half of the song is even more unforgettable.

As the song comes to an end, we can hear the individual band members speaking between themselves in an uncomplicated banter. They relate heartfelt tales and talk about some of the wild things that have happened to them as a band throughout the course of their career.

Songs are considered to be of the greatest when they are able to elicit strong feelings in the listener. And this is one of those songs. It’s one of the best song endings I’ve heard so far.

2. “Dance, Dance, Christa” by Anb1erlin

Dance, Dance, Christa Paffgen

This song spans through 7 minutes and 7 seconds. Anberlin’s album closes typically between 7-10 minutes long, and they are always expertly composed. From the moment it starts off until the music dies, it is an electric-charged rush of intensity that never lets up throughout its entirety.

This song starts off with basically nothing but Stephen Christian’s mesmerising vocals and an eerie (yet slightly groovy) bass line, but after a minute and a half, it explodes into one of the band’s most spectacular melodies, and it continues to develop layer after layer until it reaches an epic climax.

A pause for reflection comes towards the end of the song when the unnamed female vocalist utters a few lines in her hushed voice. The calmness of her voice at this point is remarkable and soothing

3. “Feeling This” by Blink-182

This song has a rather remarkable and complicated production. The choruses were written individually by Hoppus, and the verses were written by Tom Delonge, and the best part about this is that you get to hear them come together at the end in a stroke of pure genius. If you listen carefully, you can tell that there are two different songs happening at the same time.

The polarity in voice pitch that comes from the pair provides the melody that is exhilarating, and as the song approaches its climax, the highs and lows melodies intensify and become more apparent.

And of course, you can not discount Travis Barker since the skippy beat that builds into countless crescendos makes it impossible not to move your body whilst listening to this song.

The sudden surge in volume draws attention to the stunning quality of the vocals, after which the instrumental accompaniment totally recedes, leaving only the two singers to harmonise their individual sections.

Since 1992, Blink-182 have been demonstrating to music enthusiasts all across the world that only three people are necessary to generate one of the richest, chaotically organised songs in the history of pop punk. The warm, deeper tones contributed by Mark Hoppus are what gives the song its unabashed charm.

4. “Tiny Little Robots” by Cage The Elephants

Cage The Elephant - Tiny Little Robots - Track 4

In a generation full of people who may appear to be carbon copies of one another, “Tiny Little Robots” is encouraging us to rise from the sludge and show our own light in order to stand out from the crowd. Be gorgeous. Live your life.

The song “Tiny Little Robots” by Cage the Elephant addresses a number of topics, including social captivation, money, weapons, and dishonesty, in addition to other problems that people often have a tendency to misuse and let devour them.

The band continues to blast their instantly recognisable rock beats and hooks into your ears the whole time. On the surface, it is immediately apparent that the music is of high quality.

It is a typical Cage the Elephant hymn about not conforming, and their fearless leader, Matthew Shultz, lends his upbeat voice towards the end of the song giving it an epic and memorable ending.

5. “Goodbye Sky Harbour” by Jimmy Eat World

Goodbye Sky Harbor

It is common knowledge that Jimmy Eat World are the unrivalled masters of epic song endings. The first three minutes of the song sound like your typical Jimmy track from the 1990s, and they flow seamlessly into the beginning of the end of the song.

The song begins with a spare and simple guitar, and it builds ever so gradually, slowly adding layers until you are so completely lost in the music that you have no idea where the last ten minutes have gone. After some time, the instrumentals disappear, and the song transitions into calm, layered vocals.

The line “I am but one small instrument” is repeated several times during the song’s 16 minutes duration and each time it is possible that this snippet of Jim Adkins’ voice is just one of the song’s many little instruments, but when combined with the rest of the song’s minuscule components, it creates something that is stunningly lovely. This song leaves you totally immersed in it.
