Ari really knows how to do a closing track, doesn't she? ohmy.gif

Which is your favourite of her six album closers to date? Please vote above and feel free to share any thoughts happy.gif

(decided to stick to the closers on the standard editions of her albums otherwise we'd have stuff like the Spanglish version of 'The Way' etc laugh.gif)

My favourite is the very effective 'Thinking Bout You' (which is thankfully kept as the final song on the deluxe too *.*) - such a perfect emotional high to end on.

Full ranking would be...

01. Thinking Bout You
02. break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored
03. pov
04. My Everything
05. get well soon
06. Better Left Unsaid

I think 'pov' is another perfect album closer but I put 'break up...' ahead of it as I do prefer it as a song. Artistically, it was a bit of a weird move to tack the three 'thank u, next' singles at the end but very clever in terms of streaming to keep the listener's attention right until the very end.

'My Everything' only 4th highlights the quality here as I adore it - 'My Everything' in general is really strong for ballads!

I want to love 'get well soon' more, the fandom really clings on to it, but it doesn't hit me as hard as I want it to. I of course love the sentiment of the song, but quite a drop-off from 'My Everything'. I always dismissed 'Better Left Unsaid' as a bit of a tacky mess but it is starting to grow on me. Still dated as hell but a bit of throwaway fun I guess.

pov might actually be my favourite!!!

Id probably rate them as

1. pov
2. Thinking Bout You
3. My Everything
4. get well soon
5. Better Left Unsaid
6. break up with your gf, im bored

She always closes albums well but her ballads are the best at closing their respective albums.

The voting is more spread out than I was expecting - only one song without a vote!

Thinking Bout You by about 10000000000000000000000000000000000 miles.

What a beautiful song, she couldn't even come close to matching the quality of that these days.

'pov' could climb but this was pretty easy to rank at the moment.

Oooo 'pov' clinching it there. I have to admit, It grows on me every time I hear it. A lot of Ariana's songs are like fine wine, they get better with age.
