You guys beat me to the punch on Sgt. Pepper.

How about Brian May's regal "God Save The Queen" to end Queen's "A Night At The Opera".

Bowie's Rock and Roll Suicide is a fitting and brilliant end to "Ziggy Stardust".

"Moonlight Mile", Rolling Stones

"The End", Beatles (though the real end comes with "Her Majesty", but "The End" was the real end of Beatles albums...)

i love the end of parachutes by coldplay - everything's not lost followed by the little codetta:

now i never meant to do you wrong, that's what i came here to say

so if i was wrong, well i'm sorry but don't let it get in our way

cos my head just aches when i think of the things that i shouldn't have done

and life is for living, we all know, and i don't wanna live it alone.

also the secret track at the end of daisies of the galaxy - eels: mr e's beautiful blues.

totally agree though that a day in the life is the best of all!

WITH THE BEATLES/ Money (Barrett Strong)

HELP/ Dizzy Miss Lizzy (Larry Williams)

MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR/ All You Need Is Love

LET IT BE/ Get Back

" Where Did You Sleep Last Night ?" -- a Leadbelly cover from Nirvana's Unplugged album. A powerful, anguished, and slightly eerie ending given Cobain's suicide 5 months later.

Led Zeppelin III- Hats Off To Roy Harper

This song always catches me off guard, because III is a very acoustic, folksy album, and it ends nicely with Bron-Y-Aur Stomp (one of my favorite Zepp songs)...but then, out of nowhere, Hats Off starts and takes off into crazy delta blues.
