All right, we ended round 2 with the triumph of Hell on Earth in the last part. We are in round 3 with 1 song from each decade. Let the semi-finals begin...

Songs in round 3: Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Sign of the Cross, For the Greater Good of God, Hell on Earth

Both are really great epics for me. I prefer SOTC due to better guitar melodies, the intro and the slow ending.


Stranger to the Light
Fuck it, SotC. Rime, Hell on Earth and SotC finished 9, 10, and 11 last time I ranked all the songs, they're basically tied...

Two very dull epics, I wouldn't care if I never heard either one of them again. But Rime has to be better than Sign of the cross.
It's like picking the best of two mangy flea bitten, crippled mutts, OK, one is better than the other, but really they should both be put down.

Only one song in round three is worthy of any kind of excitement. Give a newbie this tracklist and you'll put them off Maiden for life.
