Rhyme is a great song of course but it plods along and doesn't keep my attention for its entire duration. 'Hallowed be thy Name' is the definitive Iron Maiden song even with the plagiarized lyrics. It will never get old and gives me something new every time I listen to it - 'Rime of the Ancient Mariner' doesn't do that.

Regarding the plagiarized lyrics, a higher proportion of the lyrics of 'Hallowed be thy Name' are original lyrics than those for 'Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. Steve just didn't have to ask permission for the latter.

Voting for the song about what not to do if a bird shits on you.

The poll closed!? I couldn't even vote but 1 vote wouldn't have changed the course of the game.

clap hands
Thank you for this farce, NP.

to be perfectly clear, once the reunion albums left the game I simply voted against anything that wasn’t on SSOASS or Hallowed and thankfully we still ended up with the correct winner

even if the rest is a farce

Shocked to see my all time favourite track, The Number of the Beast, never even got 1 point :lol:

Also, Clansman and Dance of Death in the top 20 but Fear of the Dark isn't even though the two of them tracks are rip offs of FOTD :lol:

Hallowed Be Thy Name always will be the ultimate winner.

The final top 10 is worthy - the surprises (at least for me) are ''Infinite Dreams'' and SSOASS, but the omission of reunion era songs and ''The Trooper'', FOTD, TNOTB is shocking...

The nice surprise is the presence of TETMD in the top 10. Classic!
