Iron Maiden Statistics

Actually, Deja Vu has a solo (at the beginning)
I think it's more of a melodic intro part. Other songs written by Dave (like ''Still Life'', ''Fates Warning'', ''The Man Of Sorrows'') also have such intros, but they also have a Dave's solo.

Speaking of ''Deja-Vu'', I'm surprised that the song is without a proper solo (played by Dave, it's his song), because Somewhere In Time is the album with the least solos played by Dave - only 4!

Something for the statistics:
When "2 Minutes To Midnight" (LAD-version) is played EXTREMELY loud in an urban enviroment by midnight, at least 85% of the people around will be not happy.
When "Killers" (album version) is played the same level around 3 a.m., almost even 100% of the people around will be not happy.

That is really helpful. If my neigbours play "die Katze, die dicke, dicke Katze" again at 3 a.m., I want to anger them.


Yes, in Köln. I think it's a carnival song, but I'm no expert on that either. I only hear the lyrics through a wall. :rolleyes:
