The preliminaries are over. Now it’s time to get down to the serious business ranking Maiden’s catalogue in order.
The top seedings were served up nicely by the Maiden Survivor. We’ve spent the past week putting the bottom seedings in order.

We start with the 16 songs that got no support in Survivor, or so far in this game. The losers of this round earn the dubious honour of being Maiden’s worst songs and will play off against each other to determine the ranking. The winners will move up to face off against the next eight seeds. And so on until we reach the top.

May the best song win.

I think there will be a lot of similar reactions down here at the bottom.
Don't know about top ten, but there are certainly songs here that are better than songs that we won't be seeing for eight or ten rounds.

Since these are only 8 songs, I'd appreciate it if -when the time comes- everyone would play them all, in order to really decide well. Most of these songs have bad labels, but how long ago was it since they were really heard (well)? Now, when we're comparing them, it seems like a good occasion. Thanks in advance to anyone who'd be willing to do that. :ok:
