"Last Goodbye" is a song recorded by American recording artist Miley Cyrus. Since the song was nor formally released as a single or included in the album Bangerz, it was left on the cutting-room floor and is known as an "unreleased song". Originally intended to be on the album, it didn't make the cut. The song originally leaked as a snippet in June 2013, and was believed to be about her late dog, but after the full version leaked, much interest striked as many people believed it to be about her past relationship with Liam Hemsworth.
Little is known about the song. The writers and producer(s) are unknown, but some fans speculate the song was produced by long-time collaborator Mike WiLL Made it. The song more than likely recorded in either 2012 or 2013. Snippets of the song first leaked in June 2013 then one year later, a full version surprisingly leaked and people began to wonder whether it was about her relationship with Liam Hemsworth.
"Last Goodbye" is an Electronica and R&B song, that relies on a back-and-forth electronica-influenced, morbid synth that acts as the bubbly hold for the song, while it holds a thick bass that has a 2-step beat, tin claps, 'wooshes' that immitate Electronic Dance Music, 808 trap snares and quirky glitches. The escalation of the song during the pre-hook may cause many to think a dance-breakdown would come, but it reverts back the Electronica-R&B tone. Miley stays within a mid-range Contralto range. On the verses, she sings in a mostly hushed, emotive vocal tone, while her build-up show more force and insinuate anger, while her hook shows her immulating a yodeling-like vocal run. Due to probably not being professionally mixed, it has somewhat of a pixelated sound too it.
Critical Reception and InterestEdit
"Last Goodbye" receieved generally positive reviews from Celebrity Blogs and some critics, with most noting the nature of the lyrics, and some praise going to Cyrus' vocals. Emily Longeretta of Hollywood Life wrote; "We’re so glad this full song came out. When she released a snippet last year, sources claimed the song was about the passing of her dog, Lila. However, now that the full song is out as well as the lyrics, it’s hard to believe that is true." It’s actually almost impossible — it’s clearly about a relationship. -1- While Nidhi Tewari of International Business Times found the song a "catchy number, which if included in her album, would have been a hit."-2-
