    some to add to the list:

    The Prowler
    The Evil That Men Do
    Strange World
    Bring Your Daughter...to the Slaughter (this song is so sexy for some odd reason, haha)
    Flight of Icarus

    these are just a few of my faves that I would love to see the Iron Maidens sing.

    I would love to hear "Man on the Edge", "Total Eclips" and "Wasting Love"
    anything different would be great.

    that's a tough one...
    My picks would be something off every album through Somewhere in Time:
    Iron Maiden
    Wrathchild
    Murders in the Rue Morgue
    Killers
    The Number of the Beast
    Hallowed Be Thy Name
    Die With Your Boots On
    The Trooper
    Flight of Icarus
    2 Mins to Midnight
    Rime of the Ancient Mariner
    Wasted Years

    I take it you are planning on a studio recording...? It would be interesting to hear something you haven't done live yet.

    I know that you haven't done any Blaze era stuff, but with Wanda's brother being stationed in Iraq, Affraid to Shoot Strangers might be fitting.

    My suggestion is to poll everybody... as you are doing. Pick the Top 8 (or so), then pick like 3 really obscure songs that have never been covered on any other IM Tribute CD... maybe even songs that they never play live.

    Example: Back in the Village, Invaders, etc

    Then from a marketing stand point, it makes it even more of a special collectible. Not only are the songs performed by "the worlds only all female tribute...", but you can also use the tag line "featuring the never covered, rarely performed classic tracks..."

    I don't know... that's just my coffee fueled suggestion for the day.

    Killers (it sounded so good at Tribecca), Wrathchild, Aces High, Rime, Flight of Icarus, Hallowed, Revelations.

    And I kinda like the idea of doing Back in the Village. Its such a good song and, like SciKikMobster said, its something a little different.

    If you are gonna do one lesser known track it has to be "7th Son of a 7th Son"!
