Best Iron Maiden Songs

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Starblind

This song is simply amazing. Best song on the new album and is simply astonishing. One of my favourite songs of all time.

I really don't understand... How can songs like Hooks In You, The Angel And The Gambler or Sun and Steel be better than this one. This song gave me answer to unanswerable question-the best Maiden song. Music is great, and lyrics are probably the best Maiden will ever do.

Why?! Why is this amazing Song UNDER Songs like Bring your daughter and El Dorado?! Why Maiden Universe? I'm disappointed of you all!

Great song!

142 Childhood's End

It's a very well done song that shouldn't be at the very bottom, but it shouldn't be at the top either. One of Maidens good songs

A really, really beautiful with a heart-piercing message. The guitar-work is exceptionally good, while the chorus is so memorable. It's a pity this song is overlooked because the album is not one of the best. Give it a listen, it will skyrocket to the top 30s for sure.

I love this song more than any other Maiden song. Every band always has that one songs which just stands above the rest for only you, and in my case, it's this one. It just hits me on another level than most music does.

One of maiden's best songs and most underrated, should be in top 10 for sure. Powerful lyrics and one of their bests solos, very melodic.

143 Brighter Than a Thousand Suns

Just Brilliant! Great Guitar riffs to play and great to listen from begin to end.
Too Underrated!

How is this not number 1? This has a great buildup to it, a beast solo, and the lyrics 'Bombers launched with no recall, minute warning of the missile fall. Take a look to your last sky, guessing you wont have time to cry" will stick with me forever. Serously people get with the program here! VOTE NOW!

By far Iron Maiden's most powerful song;it should at least be in the top 10, seriously, why are the best songs always underrated?
The lyrics, riffs and the construction are all fantastic!

Good Album, brillant Song, could be addicted to this.
"take a look to your last sky"

144 Only the Good Die Young

This is an awesome song! A very underrated track. One of the best from Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son! Too bad they never played this live though. I think it should be a little higher on the list.

I love Only The Good Die Young! One of my favorite Iron Maiden songs of all-time! I think it should be at least in the top 30's. - jennifersanchez

Masterpiece song off a masterpiece album. - Brobusky

Nr. 83? What's happening? This song is very good und should be higher! - Dendo

145 Fortunes of War

Coolest blaze bayley song next to the clansman and sign of the cross but 60 god I wish it was under the clansman at the top 40 this song has amazinv lyrics but it doesn't rhyme right

Best iron maiden songs
1hallowed be thy name
2 sign of the cross
3 the clansman
4 fortunes of war
5 phantom of the opera

It also has good tune

One of the best starting solos of iron maiden gotta hear this!

146 The Unbeliever

A good song from the x factor although it is a bad album. This, fortunes of war and sign of the cross are the only decent ons from the x factor.

Haters gonna hate blaze just because he is not bruce. Shame that this pointless hate projects on two great (if not best) albums^ x factor and virtual.

One of the best I'm songs.

This is the best of blaze. The fan of iron maiden hate this singer but he have write 2/3 song very good, this, man of the edge and judgement of heaven. C mon.

147 Sun and Steel

112 what this should at least be top 50

This is a underrated song that should be in the top 50

Underrated!

148 The Blood on the World's Hands

AMAZING. Why is this awesome song nowhere near the top 10. Just listen to it

The song is called "Blood on the world's hands" no The

149 The Educated Fool

Man what, so low? This song is so well written! Awesome lyrics, awesome vocals, awesome guitar, awesome drums, awesome bass, awesome keyboard. Come on, this one of the best bayley songs ever

Great beat and an awesome song! I wish other Maiden fans relisten and give Blaze Bayley another chance. This was one of his many masterpieces with Iron Maiden.

No way that this song could be so low in the rankings. Open the page at chapter one
Could this just be that life's just begun
Forever within your darker thoughts
Reflecting on everything you've been taught

Never felt this way before
Seems that somebody's just opened the door
To the book of life... Or is it death!
There's ever anyway out

Recommend it! One of the best! RI

150 Charlotte the Harlot

WHAT IS THIS SONG DOING ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE?! It's an awesome song. It should be at least in the top 50. - johnpaularguelles

Ok, I know every song has deserved the top 20, and I can't say this is my favourite song because that changes daily, but this managed to keep me listening it for two straight weeks!

151 Weekend Warrior

Such a catchy song I honestly don't know how it is so low on this list.

This is a very good song for Fear of the Dark. PLEASE VOTE IT UP SO OTHER PEOPLE CAN LISTEN TO IT!

152 The Angel and the Gambler

WORST Maiden Song EVER. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad song. However, by Maiden's standards, this song is too poppy and SO DAMN REPETITIVE! And even though Maiden has had great songs that last very long (7 mins or more), this 9 minute track is too long for what it is: Like I said, VERY REPETITIVE!
"Don't you think I'm a Savior? " (x100) No, I don't.

A lot of the repitivness in the chorus could be removed and this song could have been a classic.

153 The Apparition

Are you here? Can you see me?

It's a good song... it is. JA

154 That Girl

Unknown B side but so well done! Love this song still

The best B Side!
