So what are your twenty favorite Bruce Dickinson solo songs?
  • All of The Chemical Wedding.
Outside of TCW, the rest of my Top 20 is currently (in order):
  1. Darkside Of Aquarius
  2. Tattooed Millionaire
  3. Man Of Sorrows
  4. Kill Devil Hill
  5. Freak
  6. The Magician
  7. Strange Death In Paradise
  8. Back From The Edge
  9. Arc Of Space
  10. Soul Intruders
I think I'd be satisfied with this for now. "Darkside Of Aquarius" is an awesome song with a great chorus and huge riffs, "Tattooed Millionaire" is a fun song with a lovely chorus, "Man Of Sorrows" is an emotional ballad, "Kill Devil Hill" is a historical behemoth, "Freak" is an awesome opener, "The Magician" is a fun, heavy rocker - and the solo section is ear candy - "Strange Death In Paradise" is a thought-provoking monster, "Back From The Edge" is a great introspective wonder, "Arc Of Space" is a beautiful acoustic piece, and "Soul Intruders" is growing on me heavily, amazing chorus.

I'd give all of these a 10, and I'd probably give one to "Space Race" as well. There are some other close songs so list is subject to change, but for now I'm satisfied with this.

So come on and engage in another meaningless poll, and maybe post about why you like the certain songs.


Chasing Ponce De Leon's Phantoms
There's already a top ten thread. But I suppose a top twenty is necessary!
