Following on from Bingo Little’s thread on album openers, how about on the best ever finales, the tracks that conclude an album with the maximum satisfaction?
I suspect The Beatles may feature but I’m going to nominate T. Rex’s Rip Off, the wild track that concludes Electric Warrior. I love its rampant rhythm and the parping sax, but the rhyming couplets, giving the listener a glimpse into Marc Bolan’s unusual mind, are what make it special. “Rocking in the nude/Feeling such a dude” is my personal favourite (somehat inexplicably, it makes me think of Rob C!).
Any better ideas, Afterworders?
