    I wonder how often we can have that "I hope they will play ATG" - "I don't think they will" - "I hope you're wrong" exchange... there must be a set limit somewhere.

    Once Iron Maiden stop touring then we'll never have that exchange again.

    I don't like that song. The lyrics are chilidish and don't rhyme. I can imagine Bruce doesn't want to sing it. Same with Mother Russia.

    Or they actually play it and people immediately lose interest never want to hear it again.

    We must be over 1000 posts like that by now.

    Still life, Talisman, EOTC (that's just a dream, but still), Revelations, Icarus, and... oh god I wanna hear Bruce's solo stuff played by them :(
    I know that I want too much...:scared:

    "Dear Iron Maiden,

    Please would you play your entire back catalogue on the next tour? I don't mind if you want a tea break in the middle, or if you miss out The Assassin.

    Sincerely,
    Black Abyss Babe,
    Aged 46 1/2"

    :D

    I actually quite like The Assassin - very dark and atmospheric song - superb solo from Janick :)

    I'll be seeing Gojira in August anyway, but Iron Maiden, Gojira and Sabaton all together? Incredible.

    Janick doing as he was told by Steve though :D

    I don't dislike the song, it's just the one I'd miss least - it's the only Maiden song where the lyrics irritate me slightly (it just feels a bit two-dimensional and cartoony considering it seems to be at least trying to take its subject matter seriously).

    I've got no problem with it at all musically - I'm glad you like it :)

    In my opinion, making "two-dimensional and cartoony" music and lyrics IS precisely what Maiden is all about... and they do it very well. :)

    It doesn't really describe any of the reunion era tracks all that well though.

    In the early days, certainly ("Killers" and "Running Free" for example) but less and less as they went on and (off the top) I can't think of any really recent example (as @Ruflux also observes). But I hadn't intended to start an off-topic debate and my original post was basically a joke (but then, you all knew that anyway :))
