It’s not unusual for a book or a movie to end with some things in the plot left unexplained.

What’s a story-telling song that has a similar type of ending?

    A great-to-me example from a great-to-me group --  great-to-me song - and a great-to-me music video :


    "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm"    Crash Test Dummies


    (three unrelated scenarios are shared . . . and we're left hanging --  and after each scenario, singer simply says  "mmm mmm mmm mmm . . ." )






    "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm"

    Once there was this kid who
    Got into an accident and couldn't come to school
    But when he finally came back
    His hair had turned from black into bright white
    He said that it was from when
    The cars had smashed so hard

    Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
    Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

    Once there was this girl who
    Wouldn't go and change with the girls in the change room
    And when they finally made her
    They saw birthmarks all over her body
    She couldn't quite explain it
    They'd always just been there

    Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
    Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

    But both girl and boy were glad
    'Cause one kid had it worse than that

    'Cause then there was this boy whose
    Parents made him come directly home right after school
    And when they went to their church
    They shook and lurched all over the church floor
    He couldn't quite explain it
    They'd always just gone there

    Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
    Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

    I've never fully understood what drove him to contemplate suicide (or murder, it's a little vague on that as well).

      I’m not familiar with that one. Thank you.
