Best album closer?

Which song do you think is the best album closer?
My pick (very predictable):
The Tourist from Radiohead's OK Computer.
Just a nice quiet song after an emotional album.

So what are your picks?

My favorite album "Closer" is by Better Than Ezra, of course.

"Would?" is an awesome closer on Alice In Chains' Dirt.

I'd also like to nominate "Bring It On Home" on Led Zep II.

Speaking of "closer", I'd go with Joy Division's "Decades" from their album "Closer".

Cocteau Twins' "Four Calendar Cafe" definitely isn't one of their best recordings, but the last song on the album, "Pur", is as good as anything they've ever done.

Edited to add: Garbage "You Look So Fine"

"Only In Dreams" is a great closer on Weezer's blue album.

My wife loves "Release" off of Pearl Jam's Ten. I happen to agree w/ her - it's an excellent closer on their first, and best, album.

Well, either that or Year One on Wild Gift by X.

Actually, "Sweetwater, Texas" is the closer on that album, which isn't a bad way to end the album -- very mellow.

Here are a few favorites of mine:
"The President's Daughter" (Fountains of Wayne's Utopia Parkway)
"Source Tags and Codes" (AYWKUBTTOD's Source Tags and Codes)
"A Murder of One" (Counting Crows' August and Everything After)
"All Apologies" (Nirvana's In Utero)

Actually, there are others I'd've picked if there weren't incredibly short songs (i.e., less than 30 seconds) following them -- "A Long December" off of the Counting Crows' Recovering the Satellites and "The End" off of the Beatles' Abbey Road come to mind.

"The End" off of the Beatles' Abbey Road come to mind.
You correct me, then I correct you: the album closer for Abbey Road is Her Majesty
