Plus: the songs do sound a lot more like each other than written in that quote. Significantly different my ass.
Production-wise the song works around the keyboards, being Didge Digital the last member to join them. That ended up so AOR that hurts.

The essence is very much the same. Melodies and chord progression in both verses and choruses. Arrangement, sound, style, production mostly won't make much different in credits. Definitely no significant difference.

I agree with you, but it is different in style. Andy probably brought to the 'Hackney' the 1st version of the song.

In 2012, FM drummer Pete Jupp was asked about the Maiden version:

As one of the credited songwriters of That Girl what did you think of the Iron Maiden cover-version on the B-side of Stranger In A Strange Land? Was their version the original arrangement or a complete re-working of their own?

Pete - Yes Maiden's version was the original arrangement we did in the "Andy Goes to Canada" line-up with Andy Barnett, Dave Lloyd and Dave Colwell before Steve and Chris were in the band. We rewrote the chorus early on after the Overlands came on board. It was one of the four songs that got us the CBS deal.
