Abstract or Summary

Paper presented at the Royal Musicological Association Annual Conference, University of Bristol, 13-15 September 2018. This paper theorises the nature of closure (how songs end) in popular music, utilising a range of examples from the 1970s progressive and class rock repertoire. It builds on the work of analytical musicologists from the classical tradition to develop a methodology that is applicable in a popular context.
