The End Of Sid And Nancy

Here’s a great ending to the movie “Sid and Nancy,” which is about punk rocker Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen.

As Sid Vicious walked on the New York train tracks, wind blew and fog covered the tops of the city skyscrapers in the background. He was walking alone and no one was around.

In the distance, Sid saw a pizza place. He entered the joint. He sat at a table. He started eating pizza.

While eating the horrible pizza, Sid heard music and went outside. Some Black kids started saying, “Yo Sid, do you want to dance with us? Why don’t you stop being stuck up? Come on, man. Stop being so stuck up.” Sid replied, “I don’t want to dance with any little kids.”

On second thought, Sid decided to dance with the kids while KC and The Sunshine Band’s “Get Down Tonight” played in the background. As they danced, Sid’s taxi arrived. The glow of the taxi’s headlights could be seen on the old broken cars.

Perhaps, KC’s song was added for broader reasons at the end of this movie. For example, the producers of this movie may have wanted to signal the end of the punk era and the beginning of the disco era. Maybe, it was just a good dance song for the movie. We can only guess the reasons, but it sounded nice for an ending.

Anyway, in the back of the taxi, Nancy Spungen, Sid’s deceased girlfriend, sat. As she looked out at Sid, she smiled.

Though like some strange premonition, Sid looked in the window and saw his reflection. He got into the taxi. Sid and Nancy left for heaven, like the song’s lyrics. Now, the fog was clearing.

While the taxi drove away, we heard the kids in the background. They were yelling, “Yo, Sid, you don’t even know what you’re doing! Thanks for dancing with us!” They chased after the taxi.

As the credits of the movie came to an end, the caption read: “Sid Vicious died of a heroin overdose on February 2nd, 1979. Nancy and Sid. R.I.P.”

It was a nice ending to a sad and tragic situation. Finally, Sid was reunited with his girlfriend Nancy. She had cleaned up and was drug-free. And they both took a final clean trip to heaven.
