As you scream into the web of silence...
Going with “Brave New World”, “Still Life”, and “The Thin Line Between Love and Hate”.


Last Son of The Miracle
”The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg” is very good, but the answer is: “The Prophecy”.

Why not both (and a third song)? :lol:

For me it's Brave New World, Ben Breeg and Judas Be My Guide, with The Thin Line... and Rainmaker following very closely.

Also, minor note: Dave didn't co-write New Frontier, that was Adrian.

No one wants the credi.. blame for that one.

My top three by Dave are

1. The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg. He knocked it out of the park with this one. One of Maiden's most mysterious, mystical and atmospheric songs. The intro is beautiful and haunting and the main riff is as heavy as anything Maiden ever did. Great solo also.

2. Still Life. The "title track" on Piece of Mind, unfortunately a slightly forgotten song and of the truly underrated gems in Maiden's discography.

3. The Prophecy. Difficult choice. I considered Brave New World, but today it felt like The Prophecy was the right choice. The outro is one of Maiden's best. Dave writes very soothing intros, it might be a bit one dimensional, but he comes up with so few songs it never gets old and he never copies himself (Hi, Janick).


Educated Fool
1. The Thin Line Between Love And Hate
2. The Nomad
3. Rainmaker

All 3 tracks are still in my Maiden top 10 song list.
I voted for the same 3. only the ranking is backwards.:)

1, Rainmaker
2. The Nomad
3. The Thin Line Between Love And Hate


Pica Serdica
Drifter? Am I missing something?
Still Life, Charlotte and The Prophecy, with Fates and Judas getting a honourable mention.
I wouldn't include Nomad in that list btw.

Edit: Did I really forget Deja-Vu? :facepalm: Now that's déjà vu indeed.

Rainmaker, Brave New World and The Thin Line Between Love And Hate.

Deja-Vu, When Two Worlds Collide, Judas Be My Guide and The Nomad are all on close second.
