Top 10 Egypt-Themed SongsMetal_Treasure
The Top Ten
Dio wrote the lyrics from the standpoint of a slave in Egyptian times. The song is about "an astronomer who becomes "obsessed with the idea of flying" and enslaves a vast army of people to build him a tower from which he can take off and fly" - wiki - Metal_Treasure
It's about an arrogant Pharaoh in his dying hours. The album cover is also Egypt-themed.
By the way, I see a similarity in the lyrical themes of Stargazer and Powerslave (Egypt, slave) - Metal_Treasure
It's a sequel to Stargazer - the slave that narrates Stargazer is now free after his master had fallen and the former slave can't believe he's wasted so much of his life working for a false idol. - Metal_Treasure
The entire Nile discography can be on this list...
On a metal list I would put this song higher but this list isn't only for metal fans and the song would be too extreme to mainstream music fans. - Metal_Treasure
