Would take Alexander, Stranger and Wasted Years over Deja Vu.Maiden is very fond of the theme of a tour and the songs they play usually fit that. Yesterday when I was listening to Deja Vu it occurred to me that that song actually fits the tour quite well. Not just because it's a song from Somewhere in Time (obviously) but because the lyrics fit the theme very well;
When you see familiar faces
But you don't remember where they're from
Could you be wrong?
When you've been particular places
That you know you've never been before
Can you be sure?
'Cause you know this has happened before
And you know that this moment in time is for real
And you know when you feel deja-vu
Looking at the first part of the song they're singing about how they've been here before and how they've seen these faces before. They've already been on a Somewhere in Time themed tour and they're doing it again. Deja Vu you could say, right? So I think the song would fit perfectly in the setlist for that reason alone!
I personally wouldn't mind if they replaced Wasted Years for it. I love that song but I'd much rather hear Deja Vu, a song that has never been played live before!
Would take Deja Vu over every other song on SIT, with the exception of maybe Sea Of Madness.
