The Rime of the Ancient Mariner - pure excellence.
Even prog is rooted in the blues, at some point...

Prodigal Son. It really doesn't even sound like an Iron Maiden tune, but it's fantastic.

Its extrememly hard to pick one iron maiden song, but in my opinion, it would have to be Hallowed Be Thy Name. Bruce's amazing vocals, (nevermind the friggin amazing 20-count note he holds in the intro) combined with the extremely long and well-put together guitar solo, followed by four repetitions of hallowed be they name, its just Maiden at its best. Plus, its on their greatest album of all time, Number of the Beast.

Yep! Good call. Always loved that song.

I'm more inclined towards early Maiden, that is everything up to and including Powerslave, although I admit I'm not as familiar with the later stuff. Bayley ear, I don't know at all:

Wrathchild.
The prisoner
The number of the beast
Still Life
To Tame a land
2 Minutes to midnight
Rhyme of the ancient mariner

All great metal tunes.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Must be either Remember Tomorrow, Hallowed Be Thy Name or Moonchild. But they have so many great songs.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Phantom Of The Opera, or more songs from Killers.

Another one is Afraid To Shoot Strangers!

^They're not. They're prog related, like Zeppelin, Queen, Black Sabbath and other rock bands which features some prog elements in their music.
 
Btw, my favorite IM song is Blood Brothers.

Am i alone about this? Stern Smile
