There's a short, "filler" song...
If you put me on the spot, I'd have to say new. I have been listening to Maiden since I was 4 years old (No Prayer was my first album), but it wasn't until Brave New World was released and Bruce came back that I became a true diehard. I've followed them since then with intense fanaticism and...

I think this one would be amazing if it were reintroduced into the live set. The Maiden England version was great, and the 3 guitars would more than do it justice. Mariner is a great song, but I've always preferred this from all the other 80s epics (apart from AtG)
