VA - READERS POLL Greatest Closing Album Tracks
It has been quite a while since I last did a Readers Poll.
After the success of the "And In The End...Great Closing Tracks" series I presented recently, I receive many suggestions for what would be considered the Greatest album closing track from visitors and that I haven't included in the 3 volumes I posted.
The art of album sequencing is an ephemeral thing. Figuring out the strongest way to begin an album can be a challenge, but to decide the proper way to conclude a group of songs is equally important. A great album can finish any number of ways, with a slow, quiet, mellow, meditative and somber farewell, on a powerful epic that goes out with a bang. Do you remember when the last track on an album would finish, and you’d wish the music would just never end? An album's closing track is almost as essential as the opening one. Just as an album's opening song plays a pivotal part in a record's cycle, the closing track serves a similar and not totally unrelated purpose. The final song is a summation of an album's musical and thematic themes, a final word on what we just listened to. A closing track can be some of the biggest highlights on an album where many artists offered up their best for last. A closing number can leave you exhilarated and wanting more, or it can be the sign of what's coming next.
Here is a new opportunity for you to add your own thoughts about music. Previous READERS POLLS have been fun, and the results have been rewarding.
I am very interested in what others would choose as the GREATEST CLOSING TRACK, one that meets the criteria above.
I guess some may need to think about what song you would choose. Therefore, I am keeping the responses timeline open for two weeks. The closing date for receiving your selections will be two weeks from today on 18th September 2022 to 2nd October 2022.
I only have these simple requests.
- Please identify 2 songs each ONLY Each. (Knowing that we all have different musical preferences, any genre will be acceptable.)
- Name the Album it is from, it's genre and the year it was released.
Please send all submissions to BUTTER2020ap@proton.me
Please NOTE: I will not be sharing your email address and will delete them once I have your selections.
Here is a template to make life easier.
After your choices have been received, I will collate and create a set of CD's to reflect your choices. This is potentially a huge project so it may take a little while to complete. I am sure the results will be rewarding.
I hope you will have fun offering your choices.
