Still has the most plays of any song in my iTunes. 8/10.
Let's not forget that ''El Dorado'' won a Grammy in 2011 !
Hate to say it, but that's not because of any sort of merit for the song or the band. The reason is simple: They figured Maiden sold a lot of records, they needed to give Maiden a Grammy because they were obliged to some sort of recognition, and they looked for the most recent single release. If Maiden's recent single had been a techno remix of The Apparition or a live version of Run to the Hills, that's what would have gotten the Grammy.
Yeah, maybe you're right. Otherwise, almost every Maiden single from the 80's probably would have won a Grammy Award.
Strange how BYD... TTS do not won in 1990 - the song was #1 in the charts (the only Maiden song to do that!).
That, and bias across all categories. I was looking at the nominees for this year's ceremony and there were quite a few albums that seemed obvious wins which didn't even get a nomination, while stuff nobody's even heard of, or even that weren't that successful among critics, were nominated.Again, when it comes to heavy metal (I don't know about any other category), the Grammies have nothing to do with art and music, but are all about business.
