The Top Ten
A hidden bonus track that was added to the album "London Calling" at the very last minute and the initial pressings didn't even list the track on the sleeve. - Metal_Treasure
One of my favorite Clash songs. It has a sick guitar solo too. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
It's actually one of the most destructive and it's one of my favorites - FettiMC
One of my favorites by the band, actually. - Alpha101
Plays 10 minutes after the end of Something In the Way on the CD. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
A great bonus track to a great album (2015). I guess Blind Guardian released this song as a bonus track because it's a mellow song and they didn't want to be accused of not being heavy enough. Metal bands are criticized for the soft songs and Blind Guardian did the right thing. This song is one of the best songs on the album though - it's mellow but not poppy and cheesy. Metal bands should learn from Blind Guardian.
I like the whole song and especially the wonderful melancholy chorus:
"But still they don't know they're just caught in distant memories". - Metal_Treasure
Groovy rhythm, beautiful chorus and lyrics, and perfect vocals (bonus track 2005).
"I'm existing hopelessly 'cause I can't reach the sun
Darkness covers me, my soul has yet to long
I'm looking for serenity 'cause I can't reach the sun
It's all I long for - the heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing of the sun". - Metal_Treasure
Bonus track for the Japanese edition only (2008). The album was very good, too. - Metal_Treasure
This song is amazing!
This could be their most agressive song. - Userguy44
Gerry Rafferty cover. - Metal_Treasure
Bonus track on Biggie's "Ready to Die" - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
Bonus track 2005. - Metal_Treasure
Love this hidden track
Behind the song 'These Dreams'
Cream cover - one of the best cover songs out there and in my opinion it sounds better than the original.
Bonus track for limited edition, vinyl, and Japanese releases (2000). - Metal_Treasure
Pretty decent track, but Earache my Eye (hidden track off Follow the Leader (Korn)) should be on here.
Should be higher in my opinion. - Element119
Amazing Uriah Heep cover (1995). It sounds better than the original. - Metal_Treasure
Only 0:23 minutes long, it appears as a hidden track, 14 seconds after the end of the official final track, “The End”.
Later releases of the album included the song on the track listing. - Metal_Treasure
WHY isn't THIS FURTHER UP ON THE LIST?
Bonus track on the vinyl edition only. - Metal_Treasure
This is literally hidden at track 99.
Limited edition bonus track, 2014.
I love the lyrics better than the music to this song (the singer and lyricist is German):
"England's got Steve Harris
And as if that was not enough for you:
England's got Bruce Dickinson
And on top of it the other ones
in Iron Maiden too, yes, it's true.
England: inventors of definitely Leppard, Shakespeare..." - Metal_Treasure
Hidden track - stashed after the final official track, What Became Of The Likely Lads, on their second, self-titled album. - Metal_Treasure
Gary Moore and Phil Lynott cover. Bonus track for Japan (2001). - Metal_Treasure
Easily one of his best tracks. So sad that it isn't regarded as such. - PositronWildhawk
Japanese Bonus Track, 2006. - Metal_Treasure
