Fadeouts probably shouldn't count, although there've been some classics, e.g., the coda from "Layla", by Derek and the Dominoes.

Off the top of my head:

1. Hot 'lanta -- Allman Bros: big, swelling, monster organ chord that always leaves me crushed and sweaty
2. Little Martha -- Allman Bros: sweet, bell-like acoustic guitar riffing that lets me down easy
3. A Day in the Life -- Beatles: the piano chord that goes on forever
4. Green Circles (U.S. version) -- Small Faces: great crescendo shattered by a splintering drum attack leading to the fadeout

all i want is you-the swelling orchestra that's almost atonal as it builds.

one tree hill-not the very last bit, but before that, when bono's wailing, and the edge adds some heavily distorted guitar riff underneath everything, driving it to a close.
