"The Last Song" is the second single by Elton John from the album The One. The song was composed by John, with the lyrics by Bernie Taupin.

This song was written in the memory of Ryan White, a young AIDS patient who died at age 18, with whom John was close.

The song was used during a closing montage featuring people who died of AIDS (including White himself) at the end of the 1993 film And the Band Played On.
