    My vote is still Aces High, though The Wicker Man is quite close.

    Same but opposite ;D Wicker Man is my favourite but Aces is damn close.

    Some great tunes!

    In terms of opening tracks, I think Aces High is among the best opening tracks of all-time. So I voted for that one.

    However, my favorite songs off the list are Moonchild, Sign of the Cross, Be Quick Or Be Dead, Different World, and Prowler (in that order).

    My favorite opener would be Moonchild. I love the "seven deadly sins" line, the keyboard line following it, and the build-up towards the main part of the song, it's addicting. Sign of the Cross is a very close second.

    A 4 way tie Caught somewhere in time, Aces High, Sign of the Cross(that is the most out of place song in all Maiden albums because Sign of the Cross should've ended the album not started it)& Moonchild

    Aces High might be a better opener but I felt an urge to vote for Caught Somewhere in Time.

    A metal concert starting with a famous speech by one of the most influential political leaders of the world, Winston Churchill. Aces High is the clear winner for me. Just watch the '85 long beach arena concert.

    SixesAlltheway (slow heavy metal music playing)

    I really like Where Eagles Dare

    My heart lies with The Wicker Man. A very close second, or a tie, would be Aces High.

    Where Eagles Dare is a real belter, but Wicker Man really grabs and holds the attention. It's an amazing opener live, too - worked to perfection at Rock In Rio.

    Aces High but Caught Somewhere in Time is very very close.

    Interesting that no one has voted for Sign of the Cross.
     
  19. CriedWhenBrucieLeft

    CriedWhenBrucieLeft Version 4.1

    ... or half the other openers up there! :p

    I actually people are getting it way right. The ones with no votes are vastly weaker openers (save for Futureal).
