    We have a winner! (Finally!)

    Clue #1: Flight Of Icarus -- the lyric "fly on your way like an eagle" parallels the "like the eagle and the dove, fly so high on wings above" from "Sea Of Madness".

    Clue #2: The Number Of The Beast -- the lyric "what did I see, can I believe" parallels the "my eyes they see, but I can't believe" from "Sea Of Madness".

    Clue #3: The Talisman -- a song about the sea.

    Clue #4: Can I Play With Madness -- a song about ideas that could drive you to madness, similar to "Sea Of Madness". And there's "madness" right in the title, of course.

    Clue #5: Rime Of The Ancient Mariner -- another song about the sea, where the lyric "no wind in her sails" parallels the "there ain't no wind to fill your sails" from "Sea Of Madness".

    Clue #6: Frederick The Great -- Adrian Smith's middle name is Frederick, and he composed "Sea Of Madness". Also, "Alexander The Great" is on the same album as "Sea Of Madness".

    Clue #7: One songwriter, not a single, not a B-side -- "Sea Of Madness" was written solely by Adrian Smith, and is neither a single nor a B-side.

    Clue #8: Clues #6 and #7 are enough information all by themselves to deduce the answer -- Adrian Smith only has 3 songwriting credits with Iron Maiden where he was the sole songwriter. "Wasted Years" and "Stranger In A Strange Land" were both singles, leaving "Sea Of Madness" as the only possible answer.

    Yes, because it reduced the search space.

    Clue #1: A film follows another, but it's not the sequel.
