25 Great Last Songs On An Album

And In the End: 25 Great Last Songs On An Album: "Although less and less relevant in the age of MP3s, an album’s sequencing used to be a vital part of the creative process. Important for pacing, creating a mood, and establishing a cohesive artistic statement, the order of the tracks was often mulled over as closely as the recording itself. Opening numbers have been given quite a bit of attention, especially with the now famous scene in High Fidelity where the employees of the ficticious Championship Vinyl record store debate their favorite Side 1’s, Track 1’s. We even did a similar list based on this scene here at JamsBio. The last songs of an album, however, haven’t been as widely discussed, so the editors at JamsBio have come up with some of the best final album cuts, listed chronologically. Let us know what some of your favorite closing songs are."
