The Clash U.K Version-Janie Jones/Garageland Sticky Fingers-Brown Sugar/Moonlight Mile Marquee Moon-See No Evil/Torn Curtain Closer-Atrocity Exhibition/Decades Bringing It All Back Home-Subterranean Homesick Blues/Its All Over Now Baby Blue
Of new-ish stuff, I'd also give honarable mention to the Thermals - The Body, The Blood, the Machine for "Here's Your Future" and "I Hold the Sound"
Life Without Buildings - Any Other City The Pixies - Doolittle The Replacements - Pleased to Meet Me Slint - Spiderland Jets to Brazil - Orange Rhyming Dictionary Elvis Costello - This Year's Model Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It In People Modest Mouse - This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About The Futureheads - S/T Bonnie "Prince" Billy - I See A Darkness
Every Hold Steady record has fantastic openers and closers... that should go without saying here though.
Weezer, Blue Album (My Name Is Jonas/Only In Dreams)
Only In Dreams is a veyr underrated closer. That guitar build up is pretty epic. On YouTube there is a cover of Ash playing it live and they play it almost as good as Weezer. uk.youtube.com/watch?v=bzgmOqFZGnM
if i could've chosen, i would've been born a woman. my mother once told me she would've named me laura. i'd have grown up strong and beautiful like her, and one day i'd find an honest man to make my husband. we would have two children, build our home on the gulf of mexico, our family would spend hot summer days on the beach together. the sun would kiss our skin as we played in the sand and water, and we would know we loved each other without having to say it. at night we would sleep with the windows of the house left open, letting the cool ocean air soothe the sunburned shoulders of our children.
oh, man. best closing verse ever. so gutsy.
edit: also, bright eyes- lifted (the big picture/let's not shit ourselves) belle & sebastian- if yr feeling sinister (stars of track and field/judy and the dream of horses) lucinda williams- car wheels on a gravel road (right in time/jackson) the strokes- is this it? (is this it/take it or leave it) fugazi- red medicine (do you like me?/long distance runner) the distillers- coral fang (drain the blood/death sex) the gossip- movement (nite/light light sleep + the hidden track with just the noisy electric guitar and beth singing notes, but no words) sleater-kinney- dig me out (dig me out/jenny) jawbreaker- dear you (save yr generation/unlisted track. the reissue bonus tracks are good--and well-placed--too.) against me!- reinventing axl rose (pints of guinness make you strong/8 full hours of sleep)
