Best Songs On Iron Maiden's Powerslave

The Top Ten

Rime of the Ancient Mariner Rime of the Ancient Mariner Cover Art

Solo is amazing and the lyrics are simply timeless. Maiden at their best making this also one of the best metal songs of all time.

It was really close for me between this and Blank, but I like Rime of the Ancient Mariner a little better. - djh101

My all-time favourite. Love this album though, even the lesser known stuff in the middle.

How is this so low? Best song on the album. And IT LOST TO BACK IN THE VILLAGE! Thats the worst song on the album.

Aces High Aces High Cover Art

The greatest song on the album. Which is quite an achievement considering it's on the same record as 2 Minutes To Midnight, Flash of the Blade, Powerslave and Rime of the Ancient Mariner. - EddieVanHalen2001

Best song in the whole world. No wonder its #1 here. UP THE IRONS!

This song has a purely awesome riff. - Songsta41

The perfect metal song

amazing intro amazing chorus and amazing solo what more can you want - wolphert

Rime is my favorite, but this is better than Aces High easily.

First or second maiden song I heard. I need to get a newer version of this album cause it skips on this and rime

I just love it. The Egyptian riff really gets you into the mood and enviorment. Bruce's singing is just amazing and he really gives you the feelings of a dying Egyptian god.

A catchy song all to do with the Egyptian curse of midnight. There are cool words in this song like jellied brains and barrel of fun, golden goose is on the loose and lick the gravy its funny and cool!

Flash of the Blade Flash of the Blade Cover Art

Probably the most underrated Maiden-song. It's my favourite, incredible song.

The guitar harmonies in the middle are similar to those from "Phantom of the Opera", a true stroke of genius, this song is my favourite Iron Maiden song of all time!

The Duellists The Duellists Cover Art

Amazingly crafted song with superb vocals and quite possibly the catchiest chorus ever. The instrumental section in the middle is nothing short of fantastic. A true masterpiece.

This one is a real epic. You know this one, you know what Maiden is about. You will never understand why it was never played live. I mean we all know 20 versions of 'The trooper'.

'Back in the village' and this one definitely are part of the most underrated Maiden songs. Actually two classics which never have been played live. What a shame!

Can't really decide which one I love most: The duellists, Back in the village or Aces High. This one rules by Bruces outstanding singing and the mind-blowing guitar solo. Up the irons!

Back in the Village Back in the Village Cover Art

Most people just think "It's on powerslave, of course it's good" but don't appreciate it as its own song. Listen to it right now and tell me it's not a sick and perfectly executed song. - Songsta41

Filler. Not a bad tune, but certainly not better than anything else on the record. - EddieVanHalen2001

This song rocks


Its an intro to powerslave in a way
Its hard to believe that blank is higher than this haha man you guys make me laugh
