best song with an abrupt ending

i'll think about that, but I know it's not the Beatles "A Day in the Life".

The Beatles-I want you (She's so Heavy).

Probably not the best but one of my favorites.

I second I Want You (She's So Heavy).

I really like how it works out on the CD. On the LP, that is the last song on the first side. The first song on the second side is Here Comes the Sun. On the CD, as soon as I Want You stops, Here Comes the Sun starts. The contrast is so stark it is just GREAT! I don't know if it was planned, that way, beings that you have to flip the LP over... oh well. I like it!

Yeah. But not a Homer Simson doh! (although a parody like that would be kinda funny)

No. No. No. and No.

If you want ABRUPT you want Dream Theater's only mainstream hit, "Pull Me Under."

Queensryche has one too, but which one it is right now escapes me.

I thought for years that my cd was messed up. Didn't know it was supposed to end abruptly until I heard my friend's cd.

"No Regrets" by Robbie Williams.

Just a loud 'DEAD.' and it's a bit of a jolt.

Counting Crows- "Rain King"

This is a great song UNTIL the abrupt, crappy ending where the lead singer adds his stupid "Yeahhhh!"

Does Zep's Heartbreaker count? I burned that track onto a mix CD and with out Livin' Lovin' Maid following it just stops at "Heart!".

also along the lines of DT's "Pull Me Under", Opeth's "Serenity Painted Death" and "Closure" have some pretty abrupt endings..
