    Certainly! Clearly hear it.

    That Girl has a typical Maiden gallop and harmonized leads, but the lyrics talk about, well, a girl. It’s a love song and it’s strange to hear Bruce singing something like this. That said, he sounds marvelous. The guitar solo is a bluesy delight.

    @LooseCannon which songs can have a vote in relation to your statistics? Virus can, and this one not. Is it because it is not written by Maiden?

    That's one category. I'm also not interested (at this time) in doing songs that were B-sides or never released on an album officially. Virus seems to fit for the main discography discussion, as it was the A-side of a single, and it was officially released on BotB, and was written by the band.

    Everything else only hits two of those categories.

    Still it can be interesting to see how certain b-sides would do among album songs. I am especially thinking of Justice of the Peace and Judgement Day.
    Perhaps a chance in the future?

    It's possible, but the data won't be as good or consistent.

    Your consideration is appreciated! (on the data quality: I see what you mean, but we have to start somewhere)

    30 years later.... re recording of That Girl, by FM:

    This is neat as well but I prefer the original because of the solos (and vocals and production and drums).

    I thought you'd prefer that, Foro; there's a few added guitar harmonies there that weren't on the original.

    Btw, is that still Steve Overland singing? He sounds... exactly the same! :eek:

    Should be him!

    He hasn't lost a thing over the intervening 30 years. Great voice.

    Foro, your love of this makes me wonder if you've ever heard a Canadian band called Honeymoon Suite?

    Same era and musical territory with a gifted lead guitarist.


    And because you love Tull, a track they did with Ian Anderson guesting

    And after falling down the rabbit hole, some Canuck prog

     
  14. They couldn't add a cover in the A side of the album??

    Zare Dream of broken citadels

    They haven't done that before Brave New World.

    I know this is a cover, but I can't get beyond the lyrics with Bruce's delivery style. Iron Maiden do not sing love songs (unless someone tragically dies or has an existential crisis midway through).
