This will be a good reference list for solving @Jmaster's guessing game clues.

Out of the Silent Planet
Song titles of Maiden that are part of the lyrics of some Maiden songs:

Wrathchild - ''I know I've got to find some serious piece of mind, or I know I'll just go crazy''

Murders In The Rue Morgue - ''Run before the killers go free''

22 Acacia Avenue and From Here To Eternity - both mentions Charlotte
Hooks In You - ''I got the keys to view at number 22''

Stranger In A Strange Land - ''Sometimes things ain't what they seem, No brave new world, no brave new world''

Moonchild - ''I am he, the bornless one, The fallen angel watching you''

Infinite Dreams - ''I couldn't hear those screams, Even in my wildest dreams''

The Prophecy - ''Purgatory beckons souls lost forever''

The Final Frontier - ''Like Icarus before me or so legend goes''

Coming Home - ''Just a lonely satellite, speck of dust and cosmic sand''

If Eternity Should Fail - ''The angels come and the angels go, But the lord of light shining below''

Shadows Of The Valley - ''Soulless demons laughing in a sea of madness''

bonus: The Apparition - ''Extra Sensory Perception, Life After Death, telepathy''


I'm not sure if these are all...

Yes, Yes, Another Beer!
Still Life is a title track.

Prove me wrong.
The title of the song is “Still Life”. The title of the album is Piece Of Mind. Those phrases aren’t the same, so it’s not the title track.

Does “Still Life” contain a phrase that’s a homonym of the album title? Yes. Does that make it the title track? No. Does that make it a stealth title track of sorts? Sure.

Piece of Mind is listed there on Spambot's post as Peace of Mind. Still Life says peace of mind. Therefore, it is a title track. And if CSIT counts as a title track (level of similarity be damned!), so can Still Life.

Flawless logic.
