    Well, this is a tough one. How do you divide up such a big list of songs? There are a total of, what, 10+11+10+10+11 = 52 songs? So we're talking about dividing it almost neatly into half.

    So let's look at our lists:

    Ghost of the Navigator
    Brave New World
    Blood Brothers
    The Mercenary
    Dream of Mirrors
    The Fallen Angel

    Different World
    These Colours Don't Run
    Brighter Than a Thousand Suns
    The Pilgrim
    The Longest Day
    Out of the Shadows
    The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg
    For the Greater Good of God
    Lord of Light
    The Legacy

    Satellite 15... The Final Frontier
    El Dorado
    Mother of Mercy
    Coming Home
    Isle of Avalon
    The Alchemist
    Starblind
    The Talisman
    The Man Who Would Be King
    Where the Wild Wind Blows

    If Eternity Should Fail
    Speed of Light
    The Great Unknown
    The Red and the Black
    When the River Runs Deep
    The Book of Souls

    Shadows of the Valley

    The playlist on Youtube about it (best songs of 2000-2015) was uploaded by me. I left Speed of Light and Starblind out, which caused some complaints in the commentaries. :innocent:
     
  10. Number 6

    Number 6 Ancient Mariner

    I don't give 2 craps about "Speed of Light" in this particular Top 25 case, but Starblind?! Who leaves Starblind out of a list like this?

    (I know @Diesel 11 does, but he dislikes "Purgatory" so we disregard his opinion.)

    Diesel 11 As you scream into the web of silence...

    I actually like Starblind. I'm finding it's another grower on me. Who knows how much I'll enjoy it by next year. Still, kinda clunky and there are better Maiden songs.

    Purgatory can go fuck itself.
