Perhaps this post doesn't seem to belong here, but I've always had trouble putting together my list of favorite songs by any band. I'm one of those people who would rather listen to an entire album in one go, because individual songs being repeated over and over again actually kill the vibe for me. I'd rather my emotions get carried through the whole experience of not just one or two songs, but the whole of an album.

Needless to say, I've always enjoyed "Aces High", "Phantom of the Opera", "Murders in the Rue Morgue", "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner", and "Invaders" a lot.

Ancient Mariner
^ will always be my favorite song and I believe Maiden's best. Amazing intro, epic guitar riffs, mind blowing twin guitar harmony and great mysterious lyrics. Perfect Maiden song
