Something like...

... "The End of the World", which I'm not sure fits either category. Light, like a sensitive friend's virtual hug, with an "it's just a pop group that gave you (by then) twenty great album splitting up, don't feel sad about it" message. With Johnny Marr on guitar (and maybe an extended or alternative version with some former collaborators getting a verse.. Liza, Kylie, thingy from Human League, etc. on the bonus disc, which I really hope they'll do again for future albums)...

RE: Something like...

I've got to say, this might be the hardest poll question yet... I can't seem to make up my mind about if the last track should be something like "Left To My Own Devices" or "Being Boring" or a Burn/AOMM style stomper. Or something else!

But I'd say it'd definitely need an arpeggiated sequence. For example, the recent B-side "In His Imagination" is quite splendid (among other reasons) because even though it's not a catchy stomper-type track, it's still catchy thanks to the synth sequence.

Every time I listen to Very when it comes to Young Offender I think "yes, that's it!" ...the perfect end. IMO the following last songs are rather irritating: One in a Million should have been more inbetween and putting Go West ("the" lead-single) at the end is quite strange.

So for me an uptempo track with long fade-out would be just perfect; just like The end of the World, btw :)

Just realised "The End.." has no fade... (But it definately should!)

Something with the mood and tempo of 'King's Cross'.
