    They're all great tunes but I picked 3 I thought of as solid enders:

    Get Back (Perhaps not as good an ending as "The End" but still a worthy ender. "I hope we've passed the audition!")
    All You Need Is Love (the nod to "She Loves You" at the end makes for a good shoutout to their earlier days)
    A Day in the Life (more of a self contained song; the album *should* have ended with Sgt. Pepper (Reprise) but everyone remembers the final cord. A callback to the opening cord of A Hard Day's Night?)
    Tomorrow Never Knows is a great tune but I've always thought it would've made a better opener. :shrug:

    Regardless of your opinion, it is and always was the closing track. Right there out in the open for almost fifty years.

    Interesting idea and you could be right. It's much more complex than most think. The verses are quite tricky musically speaking.

    If you are going to do Her Majesty, you should also do Inner Groove

    And remember James Bond Theme when you do opening tracks

    I chose the same three; all perfect for their respective album.

    I don't think so. A Hard Day's Night is the only song to have made the final of Favourite Opening Songs but no-one expects them to surpass Baba O'Riley. Or Gimme Shelter. Or Like A Rolling Stone for that matter.
