Your Top 10 Maiden Songs

Niall Kielt

Ancient Mariner
Aye, even now, how the fuck did I leave out Phantom. And Paschendale. Where Eagles Dare. Fuck me, 10 aint near enough.
 

Collin

Chasing Ponce De Leon's Phantoms
Running Free
Infinite Dreams
Hallowed
Dance of Death
Rime of the Ancient Mariner
If Eternity Should Fail
Seventh Son of A Seventh Son
Blood Brothers
Killers
Revelations

No. 1 is permanent. For All Time.
The rest of the top 5 alternate.
6-10 may also alternate.

Honourable mention to.....

Book of Souls, Brave New World, The Unbeliever, The Clansman, Purgatory and recently Caught Somewhere in Time.

I may look at this list tomorrow, when sober (briefly sober) and disagree with all of it. Except No. 1.
Running Free is your number one?

Totally. Ok, fair enough, it maybe isnt their 'best' or most interesting but it was my fav when I got into them at 6yrs old and played the LAD vhs 3 or 4 times a week and always dreamed of being part of the crowd participation bit. My choice is based on sentimentality and pure enjoyment.

And inebriation? :innocent:

Off the top of my head in no particular order:

The Evil That Men Do
Ghost Of The Navigator
Children Of The Damned

Trooper
As we all can imagine, a list like this leaves out many of our personnal all time favorites. Anyway, mine is:

1- Rime of the ancient mariner.
2- Infinite Dreams.
3- Halloweed be thy name.
4- Book of souls
5- The Talisman
6- Dance of Death
7- Powerslave
8- When the wild wind blows
9- Children of the damned
10- Empire of the clouds

It's quite surprising that my favorite album, A matter of life and death, doesn't have a top 10 song. It seems that every song is a 9.7/10.

Left out by slim margin: Acacia, Phantom, Starblind, 2 minutes, Duellists, To Tame a land, Trooper, Wasted Years, Ghost of Navigator, 1000 suns, Colours don't run, Greater Good of God, Loneliness, Clairvoyant, Evil that men do.

I'm really satisfied seeing a lot of people putting TTLBLAH among their top 10

I thought this music was very underrated, but you are giving its deserved reconaissance
