Rated:5 out of 5 stars
The song that was played at the end was Bruce Springsteen's "Glory Days."

"Glory Days is played at the end because the character of Mike had
mentioned several times in earlier episodes that he likes Bruce
Springsteen." Spin City

"Glory Days by Bruce Springsteen... 
Featured in the series finale of the Michael J. Fox sit-com 'Spin
City'. Fox is a huge Springsteen fan and jammed with him at a benefit
for Parkinson's disease."

Song Facts: Glory Days by Bruce Springsteen

"To which song did Michael J Fox choose to exit Spin City?...
Springsteen's Glory Days played at the very end - as he walked in
Washington, and as he waved good bye to the fans and cast as the
credits rolled."

Thank you so much for your help!  Actually, last night it just dawned
on me:  Macy Gray's I Try was the one I was having trouble with. 
Thank you for going the extra mile on not a whole of info to go on!

Macy Gray's "I Try" was indeed in this episode, as was "Everybody Gets
What They Deserve," by the Churchills.

"Music: 'Glory Days' - Bruce Springsteen 
 Music: 'I Try' - Macy Gray 
 Music: 'Everybody Gets What They Deserve' - The Churchills" Spin City
