What Was The Song At The End Of 'Furious 7'? It Was A Perfect Tribute To The Late Paul Walker
For any of you Fast and Furious fans who braved the crowds opening night to go see the seventh and final film in the franchise on the first day it was out (and I don't blame you, because waiting as long as it feels like we all have for this movie to be released has been tough), you probably found yourself wondering what the song at the end of Furious 7 was — well, if you were able to still form thoughts while you were sobbing crocodile tears because of the amazing ending, that is.
But, whether you were wondering who sings the song and what's it's called, or if you were wondering why there's so much saltwater on your face right now, fear not, because I happen to have answers for both questions.
As a dedicated fan of the franchise, you already know this is a thing that happens at the end of all the Fast and Furious movies — the movies always end with a song, and it's not always super easy to tell what the song is and whom it's by (especially if you're too jazzed by the movie you just watched to keep your butt in the seat for the credits).
So let me enlighten you: The song that ended Furious 7 was called "See You Again," and was performed by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth. Based off the name — as well as the whole feel of the song, and the fact that it played over a touching tribute — the track was presumably chosen for late franchise star Paul Walker, who tragically died in a car accident before filming of Furious 7 was completed.
Check the song, below:
I mean, they really don't pull any punches. Right out of the gate the lyrics are:
It's been a long day without you my friendAnd I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
CRYING. And it only gets more difficult to hold back tears from there... so I hope you weren't planning on going home with dry eyes after this movie.
How can we not talk about family when family's all we gotEverything I went through you were standing there by my sideAnd now you gonna be with me for the last ride
I'm not crying, it's just raining on my face.
