They're the only ones that are separated from the tracks before them and have a number on the back.
Oh right I see yeah.

Yuko + Hiro! What a simple, yet hitting chorus!

"I never see you/ we're never together/ I love you forever"

As good a chorus as Damon has written IMO

Without intending to get into this debate too much, I regard the closing track as the final listed, numbered track on each album. So...

1. Battery In Your Leg (seriously, those final chords, haunting and so good)
2. Mirrorball
3. Wear Me Down
4. Resigned
5. Essex Dogs
6. Optigan 1
7. Yuko & Hiro
8. Lot 105

I love Wear me Down in itself, but I think it's not the ideal closing track. Also love LOT 105 but it's too short.
Battery in your Leg is such a poignant track and it's the perfect ending for Think Tank, but I find it difficult to listen to it sometimes because it kind of... hurts?

So I was between Resigned and Yuko&Hiro and I finally went with Yuko&Hiro <3

Well, if we're considering Resigned as the closing track on MLIR, then my top 3 are:

1) Mirrorball
2) Essex Dogs
3) Resigned

Essex Dogs > Battery > Mirrorball for me, no question. They're in a different league imo.

I'd say Essex Dogs too, but I'm not entirely sure.

Mirrorball. Just ...beautful!

Of course if This Is A Low was an option I would've picked that instead.
