"The End" is a song (music by Jimmy Krondes and lyrics by Sid Jacobson) which was released (in the United States) as a 1958 single by Earl Grant. Grant's single on the Decca label, featured Charles "Bud" Dant on orchestra; some pressings of the single were shown with the title "(At) The End (Of A Rainbow)". The single was Grant's only entry into the U.S. Top 40 reaching number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 and number sixteen on the R&B chart.[1]

He also released a German version of the song, titled Jeder Tag geht zu Ende (Every Day Comes to an End).[2] The song rose to number 12 on the German charts.

Nancy Sinatra recorded a cover-version of the song for her 1966 album "Nancy in London" and in 2007 this version of the song was used in a TV commercial for Vodafone mobile telephone services in the U.K. Steve Lawrence's 1973 revival reached #46 in the Billboard Easy Listening survey.
