    I was looking through the list of songs performed by the Maidens, and while I highly appreciate the hard work in performing those songs live, I'm surprised that a lot of great Iron Maiden songs have yet to be played by the Maidens. As a matter of fact, the entire Dance of Death album is untouched.

    So out of the songs on the poll, which one should the Maidens perform?

    PS: Yes, I included a couple of Blaze-era songs, but Bruce did perform them live (Rock in Rio). No offense to the Blaze fans, but Bruce did a way better job on those songs.

    How do I vote?

    Man I never listen to those 2 albums Virtual x and X Factor or whatever they're called. That guy's voice blows!

    Dance of Death is the weakest of the last three in my opinion. I love Brave New World and Matter of Life and Death. I think if the girls did a few more from Life and Death that would be cool. I always thought they would do a great Colours Don't Run.

    I say drop Trooper, Beast and Hills. I just thing Beast is kind of. well, cheesy. I know it brings back memories and is a good look into that time period, but come on, its hoakey. Trooper has good words, but I just think its weak. Hills is a great song, but come on, its turning into Freebird. That frees up about 25 minutes to play Tame a Land or something. Brave New World is a relevant song during these elections.


    PS- Having said all that, everything the girls play I love, so didn't mean to insult anyone.

    That's why you should pick up Rock in Rio and Death on the Road, and hear Bruce give justice to some songs from the Blaze era.

    As a matter of fact, here's a video sample of "The Clansman," mixed with footage from Braveheart:



    And here's "Sign of the Cross":



    I wanted to include "These Colours Don't Run," "The Longest Day" and "The Legacy," but the polls have little room.

    At least I didn't include "Mission from 'Arry" on the list.:p

    If the Maidens decide to perform "Heaven Can Wait," would they also invite some of us on stage to do the "Whoa oh oh" chant with them?

    That would be very, very cool but they'd have to be very careful for drunk guys and their wandering hands.

    In keeping with the theme it should be a bunch of women to come out.

    God forbid we have Mark and Chris get up there and "sing" :p:lol:

    HCW is a song that screams out for audience participation. It may be too keyboard dependant though.

    If they do it I'm sure Aja can handle conducting the Maiden fans. They all should know how it works.

    Hahaha, yeah that would be awesome for it to be all girls! :D

    I've actually gotten quite into that song recently. I used to think it was a bit boring, but quite like it now.

    Could not agree more!!! I'm the same - it is the only Maiden song I actually hate. It's SO boring!!!!!!!!!!

    You like X Factor but hate To Tame a Land? You obviously don't know much about Spice or Arakas for that matter.

    It has quite the interesting vibe to it IMHO and I love the bass line. Really like the way Steve's bass is mixed on the entire POM CD and this one it really stands out.

    The long instrumental section is quite the left hand endurance test. :worship:

    Not to mention being just slightly out of tune to get the phase induced volume drop at 6:25-6:29. Uber bass geek stuff. :)

    The bass does sound great but it's never been a song I've taken to. I tried to give it another chance quite recently but sorry, nope!
