    What are some of your favorite album closers? The two for me that immediately come to mind are "Several Ways To Die Trying" by Dashboard Confessional, and "23" from Jimmy Eat World.

    "Inner City Blues" by Marvin Gaye immediately comes to mind for me, partly because I've been listening to Marvin a lot these last few days.

    These are both perfect, for sure. I was listening to A Mark, A Mission for the first time in awhile this week, and I was surprised at how well it holds up--that song in particular.

    Haha I was actually listening to it a couple of weeks ago myself. There's just something about that song that I really love. Honestly probably one of my favorite songs. Love the little jam session towards the end too.

    are you some kind of magic mirror

    I agree with these 100%. I basically think all Jimmy Eat World closers are perfect.

    My favorite of all time is probably "Dance Dance Christa Paffgen" by Anberlin.

    And that note he holds forever. Haha

    I also love "Heaven Here," from Dusk and Summer. Chris typically saves something special for the closing track.

    Yeah but Vindicated is the last song on Dusk and Summer

    Pretty sure my copy doesn't have "Vindicated" on there. It does have the hidden track before "Don't Wait" though.

    First one that comes to mind is "New Way Home" by Foo Fighters off of The Colour and the Shape.

    I'll take this opportunity to once again post the blog I wrote about my favorite opening and closing tracks like, four years ago.

    Closer to the Truth and Further From the Sky: Don't give away the end: My favorite opening and closing tracks

    For this post, I chose:

    Bruce Springsteen - "Jungleland"
    Jimmy Eat World - "23"
    Butch Walker - "Stateline"
    Marvelous 3 - "Cigarette Lighter Love Song"
    The Dangerous Summer - "Never Feel Alone"
    The Killers - "Why Do I Keep Counting?"
    Green Day - "Whatsername"
    Third Eye Blind - The last three tracks on self-titled, as a unit
    Dashboard - "Heaven Here"

    That list has probably changed a bit, but I still love all of those songs as closers.

    This song is such a downer. Especially the live piano version that Dallas Green released on the City and Colour live album.

    It is, but that doesn't change the fact that it's phenomenal!

    Ha, true! Besides, just about every Dallas Green song is a downer.
