Yes, I mean, I haven't heard the first live band that ends a song with a fadeout, so why so many studio versions end with a fadeout? The only explanation for me is that the songwriters or producers couldn't come up with a better idea when in the recording studio and that's OK for me if we're talking about an independent or "cheap" production, but there are plenty of fadeouts in big budget works. If my band is going to play a radio hit that ends like that, anything but a fadeout for an ending! Of course, a fadeout is easily done in the studio and I also know that most bands don't like to play their music exactly as recorded but again, if you don't plan to do a fadeout live, why do it in the studio? I'd like to hear from you about this topic.
