Discussion in 'The Iron Maidens' started by Bruce Chickinson, Apr 8, 2003.
Please let us know if there are others not on the list that you really want to hear.
Hearing Jen do the scream at the beginning of Be Quick or be Deaf would be worth the price of admission! But I say The Sheriff of Huddersfield or Black Bart Blues would be a priceless gem!
What would happen if an Iron Maiden tribute band did Maiden's cover of Jethro Tull's "Cross Eyed Mary"? Could cause a possible warp in the fabric of space and time!
If I could see you girls it would be Be Quick or Be Dread
One of my favs! Was actually listening to this song today whilst driving and was thinking how great it would be to hear the Maidens play this one, with intro and everything.
Up the Irons!
Of those on the list I'd have to say Fear of the Dark. I've heard the MaidenS play Murders in the Rue Morgue a few times [perhaps all before the Wanda era began] so it can't really be counted as new. SOME of the unlisted songs that I'd like to hear live are Phantom of the Opera, Invaders, Children of the Damned, Revelations, To Tame a Land, the 3 songs from Powerslave that I don't think the MaidenS have ever played, The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, Alexander the Great, Afraid to Shoot Strangers, Childhood's End, Blood On the World's Hands, Futureal, The Wicker Man, and it would be great to hear Massacre, I know it's a Thin Lizzy song, but Maiden recorded a great version of it.:hotjump:
Picking off the list, I'd go with MURDERS or PRISONER. But highest on my list by far would be PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. Their first two albums are still my favorites. Must admit though, if you could get away with doing a cover of a cover, Cross Eyed Mary would be a song I bet you girls could do a serious kick-ass version of. Hmmm, mabey on an Eddie's Girlfriends night?
murders and fear o tha dark
Definitely the Prisoner!!! The song just kicks major butt! The guitar/drums in the beginning sound so great with a killer sound system, but live would be f'n wild! My number 2 pick would be Phantom of the Opera. Howz bout Losfer Words? That's a great kickass instrumental! Squeeze in Ides of March, that sound just goes with Wrathchild. I think Heaven Can Wait would be fun for crowd participation. When I asked the same question a long time ago, I remember Smylex wanting Running Free...good pic too.
I know I already voted, but I'm going to invoke Chicago mayor election rules and vote twice. I'd love for you to bring a second singer, don't care who, and do that awesome duet Bruce does with Rob Halford on "Ressurection." "The One You Love To Hate" is my favorite song on that album and it only took 20 years to get Rob and Bruce together on a song, but was worth it.
maybe we can do that sometime when we play with PAINKILLER...Juddas Priest tribute band
Definitely "The Prisoner." I'm kinda surpised that I haven't heard that one or "Can I Play With Madness" yet.:hotjump:
HAHAHAHA! I agree!
Maiden's version of this song is AWESOME, and it still rates as one my all time favorite covers.
I'm still voting for Black Bart... and after being chastised by Jen I won't mention that other song again!
What song? Revelations? We need to do that one too...
Um, yeah, Revelations, that was it!
Actually, it was Alexander...
We want to do Alexander but we have like 10 classics we need to learn first....
Revelations, above all others, one of my all-time faves.
The LIGHT OF THE BLINND!!! YOULL SEE!! the Venom that TEARRS my SPINE! LOve to hear Jen belt that one out, and the mournful-tragic dual guitars... would be a kodak/memorex moment indeed. Or Powerslave, Id really love to hear Powerslave too
In that list tho, id pick Sea of Madness prolly.
Guess I'm too late for the poll but I would have went with Blood Brothers
