So, rather than do another “Do you prefer this or this,” I’ve decided to try and throw these into an order. There were 24 songs last time, and 8 were eliminated. But I’m not entirely sure I want to toss them out just yet, but they definitely will not be in the top 16.

Speaking of which, the songs below you are the top 16, they just aren’t in any order (well they are, but more on that later). So what I want people to do is to choose 8 songs that should not be in the top 8. I’ll tally the votes and the songs with the most amount will be moved down to the 9-16 slots. (I’m actually thinking about bringing back the bottom 8 from the last round and mixing them in with the bottom 8 with this round, but I'm not entireuly sure.)

As an extra, I also added how the songs would be ranked if it was based on the number of points each song got from the last round. The order descends from highest to lowest:



ACES HIGH

STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND

MOONCHILD

THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST

ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG

2 MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT

KILLERS

THE CLAIRVOYANT

WASTED YEARS

CHILDREN OF THE DAMNED

BE QUICK OR BE DEAD

FLASH OF THE BLADE

RAINMAKER

PURGATORY

MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE

DIE WITH YOUR BOOTS ON


Remember, choose 8 to be demoted.

How are people voting out Strange Land, Rainmaker and Children?! Those are three of Maiden's all-time greatest right there!

IMO Stranger is top 20 at best, I really have no idea what the fuck people see in it (OMG it fades out!).

You do know your voting to have those NOT move onto the next round, right?

yep, this round was hard, but only for 2 or 3 songs. for the other 6 it was pretty simple decision making. I'm just bummed infinite dreams didn't make it farther. the clairvoyant, 2 minutes and purgatory were hard to get rid of

What makes you doubt he knew that? Seems like a pretty accurate list to demote to me (apart from Boots On and 2 Minutes).

It's different, that's what people see in it. Aside from the fact that it's main riff is just awesome, it's one of the very few '80s period Maiden tracks which doesn't sound like all the others.

Exactly, the 2 Minutes slightly scared me.:eyes:

Well... it's a bit of a cheesy album, isn't it? Not their best. Not their worst either (Piece, Powerslave).

2 minutes was hard to toss, but die with your boots on was always annoying to me. it's mainly the production, but that background singing "if you're gonna die" before the chorus is just plain irritating. if they had just fixed those two things it would be pretty kick ass

The Live After Death version is fucking ultimate (and that's coming from someone who hates that album)!

Yeah, I think Live After Death sucks. I don't see how it keeps getting referred to as one of the best live albums of all time.

I have maiden england, but I haven't watched it in a long ass time. I think might pop it in, it really is an amazing show. and yeah live after death is pretty lame, bruce has never had a great live voice, and they capture that flatness perfectly in live after death. they speed up die with your boots on too much in live after death, but I agree it's much better live, they just haven't yet played it the way I think it should be played :tongue:

I think he sounds better live than on record. Well, now anyway. I live his voice now way more than on the older stuff.

I have live after death, a boot from chile recently, maiden england, and the early days dvd with the concerts, and his voice is never as good as on the records. i don't have rock in rio, I really should get it. I have one track, the clansman, that I downloaded and it is amazing and his voice is, while strained, does sound really good. I love both the way he sings now and previously.
