I think the way End of Evangelion's ending is perfect the way it is. However, if you had to give it an ending song, which one would you give?

My first choice is the strings version of Jesus bleibet meine Freude. This was found on some releases of EoE like the laserdisc one.

My other choice is Star from Evangelion Vox. It's weird, but I think the theme really fits EoE in a weird way. And apparently, according to the album, its melody is based on the next episode theme, which makes it fitting to put it on the last episode of the series.

Everything You Ever Dreamed would be good. Or, if you wanted to add some more classical music to the OST, Chopin's Raindrop Prelude.

BRILLIANT! I'm pretty sure that would increase the mind-fuckery a few notches. A promise of more "service" at the end would help as well.

Everything you've ever dreamed (which i think was planned as the ending song in fact before they decided to put the subtitles in the middle) Not entirely decided on whether the english or Japanese lyrics would be better.

Either that, or that music that Shinji was listening in his walkman so much:

EDIT: Thanks for the advice Reichu. The song seems to be called "You are the only one" by a so called Lilia. Reason why i thought it might be appropiate for an ending credit is that, if i recall correctly, it always seemed to play whenever a significant event for Shinji was ocurring (A part in ep4 and the kiss in ep 15 particularly come to mind)

Kotono Mitsuishi!

That song is so great, I wish it was more popular.

YouTube links die easily, so for longevity's sake it might be better to mention the name of the song that you're linking to in your post.

I'm a bit confused - Is this thread about a song to replace 'Thanatos' roll credits, or music for the very final scene? If it's the latter, I'd leave it as it is. The solemn sound of the waves lapping on the beach is perfect BGM.

The thread is asking for music to play during a hypothetical credit roll after the end of the movie, not in the middle as it is with Thanatos.

It would give the impression Eva and EoE were just a dream and that Shinji's AU normal life is the real one.

Lol, not even Capt'n Tsubasa would've trolled us that hard.
SO THERE I WAS BEING KUBO, WHEN THE EDITORS CAME IN AND WERE LIKE "YOU NEED TO DO MORE THAN PANELS OF WHITE PILLARS AND BLACKGROUNDS!" AND I WAS LIKE "FUCK YOU, I'M KUBO!" SO THEY WERE LIKE "WELL HOW ABOUT SOMEBODY DYING?" AND I WAS LIKE "FUCK YOU, I'M KUBO!" AND I MADE LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY. I LOVE MY LIFE.

Funny... On my german "The End of Evangelion" DVD there IS a credit roll after "One More Final"....
I can't remember the song though, and the DVD's not in my apartment...

But as you said... If One More Final just fades away without credits... I has a much greater impact!

It should be Thanatos: If I can't be yours again, the old (crappy) Panini edition was identical in both Italy and Germany if I remember correctly.
So let’s make a wish.

I really like the idea of Star. It would be so dissonant with the movie, but it fits.

I actually think it fits with the theme of the movie.
