Jer

Love in anger
I don't get the dislike for Lost In A Lost World at all. To me it's either the 3rd or 4th best song on Senjutsu.
It’s probably the terribly sung chorus more than anything. I also don’t like the boring noodling that borrows from “Afraid To Shoot Strangers”.

Trooper
Charlotte the Harlot
Drifter
Gangland
Sun and steel
Osfer words
Sea of Madness
Can I play with madness
Hooks in you
Chains of misery
Judgement of heaven
Angel and the gambler
Thin line between love and hate
New Frontier
Lord of light
Isle of Avalon
The great unknown
Senjutsu (still a great song)

I'm using Zare's keys as below, plus the (^) symbol to show that while music was ok, choice was made due to disliked lyrics.
The (*) mark are songs that happen to be least favourable on the record, while also being good or sometimes excellent tracks
The (+) mark are songs that have competition. E.g. I had to choose one from multiple bad options.
The unmaked are those that don't have competition, e.g. they're the sole track of the record I don't find that likable.
 
  1. Iron Maiden: Strange World
  2. Killers: The Ides of March
  3. The Number Of The Beast: Gangland
  4. Piece Of Mind: Quest For Fire (Probably the worst song of them all)
  5. Powerslave: Losfer Words
  6. Somewhere In Time: Alexander the Great
  7. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son: Can I Play with Madness
  8. No Prayer For The Dying: Almost impossible to choose as most of the album is awful
  9. Fear Of The Dark: Weekend Warrior, but it's also an album with a lot of very poor songs
  10. The X Factor: Look for the Truth
  11. Virtual XI: The Angel and the Gambler
  12. Brave New World: The Nomad
  13. Dance Of Death: Age Of Innocence

Mega

Ancient Mariner
Iron Maiden - Sanctuary*
Killers - The Ides Of March - I hate to choose this, but If I had to get rid of any song on this album, might as well be the intro.
TNOTB - Gangland*
POM - Quest For Fire
Powerslave - Losfer Words (Big 'Orra)*
SIT - Heaven Can Wait - Good song, the chorus is a bit awkward.
SSOASS - The Prophecy*
NPFTD - Public Enema Number One - This one isn't really worse than any other song on the album. I like it. Still had to choose.
FOTD - The Apparition - Maybe the first easy choice.
TXF - Fortunes Of War*
VXI - The Angel And The Gambler - Another easy choice. Should've been the short version, or possibly even Virus.
BNW - Dream Of Mirrors - A good track, but too repetitious.
DOD - New Frontier - Poor Nicko, one song writing contribution and I mark it as the worst song. It's still a good song, but I chose this just for the lyrics.
AMOLAD - Different World*
TFF - The Man Who Would Be King - Great song, only chosen because of some awkward lyrics.
TBOS - Speed of Light*
Senjutsu - Lost In A Lost World - This one was very hard. It only chose this because there's a minute and a half in the middle which I believe should've been cut. Other than that, amazing track.

* denotes great songs on amazing albums that were chosen because I had to.

Man, that was rough!

Good point... how haven't I thought about it? Perhaps because I don't think of it as a song per se. Nevertheless it would be me my pick too easily.
